My Research Packages
The Skeleton Key
Cost of this package is $125.00
This package includes my analyzing the information you provide, doing some preliminary research, and developing a research plan especially for you. Then, based on how you’d like to proceed, I can go further, or you might want to give genealogical research a go yourself. If you decide to do it yourself, I’m happy to provide you with specific, useful assistance in getting you started. If you’d like me to go further, we can discuss one of the plans below.
The Bronze Key
Cost of this package is $200.00 (plus any expenses)*
This package includes everything in the above Skeleton Plan plus an additional 6 hours of genealogical work beyond what the Skeleton Key unlocked for you! In the Bronze Plan I’ll have the time to delve deeper, and will provide additional suggestions for how to put things together. The advantage of this package is that it really allows you more flexibility to uncover secrets, intrigue, and the unexpected. This is a very popular approach for those just getting started but who know they want more than the basics!
The Silver Key
Cost of this package is $375.00 (plus any expenses)*
This package includes everything in the above Bronze plan plus an additional 6 hours of genealogical work (for a total of 12). In 12 hours we’re able to dive deep and uncover very long lost information, possible photographs, and connections! The advantage of this plan is its priority on continuousresearch without interruption of me having to re-evaluate work previously done and it includes a discount with twelve hours used for research, analysis and report writing. This is the plan many individuals choose who want to get a comprehensive picture of their genealogical questions or who want to give an in-depth genealogy as a surprise gift to their family.
The Gold Key
Cost of this package is $550.00 (plus any expenses)*
Occasionally an investigative case is very, very complex, perhaps because of an unusually large family constellation, or because it involves unusual research methods that are surprisingly time-intensive. For these situations, the Gold Key may be the way to go. It involves everything in the Silver Key Plan but with 18 hours of prioritized research, analysis, and report-writing and may involve special consultations. The advantage of this plan, too, is that continuous research without interruption of me having to re-evaluate work previously done actually saves time! Because of your commitment to your endeavor and my being able to work without interruption, this Plan is able to include a discount!
