Bringing Your Ancestors to Life: Research Rates

UPDATED September 2014

My rates for conducting research are the following:

  • General research: $50 per hour
  • Record copying (e.g., Civil War pension files), $2.00 each (scanned) or $1.00 (photocopied).
  • Transcription: $2 per line
  • Translation (German to English): $4 per line
  • Mileage: $ 0.55 per mile
  • Postage: at cost

Special Offer: Schwenningen Pedigrees

Because of my own deep research into the families of Schwenningen, Württemberg, Germany, I am able to offer a deeply discounted service to Schwenningen descendants.

I will generate a 5-generation per page pedigree of your most recent Schwenningen ancestor (usually the emigrating person), and compile the church records for everyone in that pedigree, resulting in a fully documented pedigree. Each pedigree page will include digital scans of cited and translated birth, marriage and death records for each of your direct-line Schwenningen ancestors.

Based on my general research rates, this would normally cost about $2,000 per 5-generation pedigree page (finding, copying, citing BMD for 31 people — 62 b/d records; 30 marriages).

Instead, I offer Schwenningen descendants a cost of $30 per person on a page, or $930 for a full, 5-generation pedigree page, with translation included at no additional cost.

Please contact me to take advantage of this special offer:
