Ross Genealogy Research Charges

Many other Scottish researchers and companies offer “standard packages”.

Ross Genealogy’s wide experience is that standard packages are only possible if there are “standard customers” and “standard queries”, by which we mean that the great majority of queries require an individual and targeted approach which most often don’t fit such a standard package approach.

Hourly research rates range between £15 and £25 per hour depending on the expertise of the Ross Genealogy associate who is involved in researching your query; and depending on the particular situation there may well be in terms of associated expenses involved in accessing the records and archives involved.

All this will be made clear in any estimate that Ross Genealogy provides.  Generally, Ross Genealogy prefers to work on the basis of seeking permission from the client to devote a certain, agreed number of hours on the client’s project, - along with the clear understanding that if a “brick wall” is encountered before that limit is reached, then research stops at that point, and the client is consulted as to the preferred way forward.

To initiate research on behalf of a client, Ross Genealogy requires a prepayment of half the estimate for the commission.
