The genealogy services includes the creation of a research plan, evidence collection and analysis. If it is a rush order (needed within 30 days ) add $20.00 per hour. A retainer of 30% of the total commissioned project fees. The retainer will be applied toward the research fees. Other expenses not included in the hourly rate are copies, shipping and handling I will charge at cost.
