In this package, I create a research plan for you. You will then have your research divided into manageable tasks. At this point, you can decide if you would like me to do the research or if you want to do the research yourself. We may also divvy up the tasks so that you do some and I do some.
Starting at $375 for 5 hours

$250 for the preparation of a new member application. This does not include research. Supporting documentation must be provided by client

- $750 to research a line to a known patriot already documented by NSDAR with no current issues. This covers about 10 hours of research and collection of supporting documentation.

Preparation of the application is not included.
A Residential Genealogy (also known as House History) is the story of the family and individuals who have owned and lived in a home since it was built. It is a wonderful way for a homeowner to connect to the past of the home you live in. The story of your home can be passed down to future generations who own the home. It makes a lovely gift for birthdays, holidays, anniversaries, or any special occasion.
The provenance of an old home is also a great way to market residential property. This package provides a report that can be included with the sales literature. The stories of an older home set it apart from other listings and give the real estate client a feeling of connection and ownership of the home.
