Discovering You Genealogically
About this pro
Finding your ancestors is also about finding you. Our ancestors are the reasons why we are here today and sometimes, why we are who we are. We want to give you a more personal way to get to know the ancestors that you are researching or looking for. I started conducting genealogical research as a hobby. I was adopted and I longed to know who and where I cam from. When I located my biological parents, I felt complete. As I began to map out my family tree, I began to understand myself better, as well as discover who I am/was meant to be. I want to give that same feeling to others.

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I typically work hourly for research. Other services, depending on what they are, can have a set price. Hourly prices range from $25-35/hour depending on the research in question. Work that involves translation tends to be closer to $35/hour.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?When deciding to take a new client, I like to go over all the details. I specialize in different areas, but am familiar with many. I want to make sure that we are both a good fit for one another. If we both agree to work together, I will draw up a contract that essentially restates everything that was discussed and a price we both agreed upon.
