STARTUP FEE + RESEARCH/PACKAGE + PRODUCT = TOTAL COST
The startup fee for your Family Tree is $75.00(USD). This is a flat fee for 3 hours of research time used to compile the information from the client, conduct the preliminary research to support and/or confirm the client information, input the client information into the tree, and continue to work towards the research objectives the client has requested. This ensures that the information given by the client is accurate, that there are ancestors and records to be found and that research can proceed. Then you will choose a Package and a Product.
We want to meet your needs and your budget! Our packages provide high-quality products at affordable rates.
STANDARD RATE: $20/hour for each hour of research (all prices in USD).
|SPECIAL PACKAGE RATES||HOURS||PRICE|
|BRONZE PACKAGE||30 hours||$600|
|SILVER PACKAGE||40 hours||$800|
|GOLD PACKAGE||50 hours||$1000|
** For research on a single family line (maternal or paternal) the Bronze Package will suffice. If you wish to have research on the maternal and paternal sides of your family, then it is recommended that the Silver or Gold package be purchased. More hours of research equals more discoveries.
In addition to the research, you can choose purchase a keepsake product – BOOK or POSTER. The books are printed by Alexander’s and the printing cost is per page, with the average book cost of $200-$220. This is in addition to the research costs. If a book is not required, a Poster of the family tree can be substituted for a lesser average printing cost of $30-$50 per poster.
If you don’t choose to purchase a product, then the research results will be provided in the form of account access to your family tree on Ancestry.com.
