Researching your family history
When seeking a quotation and/or evaluation of a problem
in family history, always observe the following:
• Tell Graham Jaunay exactly what
you already know.
• Explain precisely what you want
to find out or locate.
• List sources already consulted.
• If you have previously corresponded
- say so.
• If writing by hand, ensure it
is clearly written.
• Enclose a SSAE or IRC for the
reply if sending the request by mail or provide an email
All quotations are prepared in wiriting and sent to the
client at no charge.
You will receive a comprehensive report outlining all the
family history research with details on what was searched
and located including transcriptions or photocopies of recovered
documents [these may attract an additional fee] recovered
as part of the project. You can also request [for an
additional payment] certified birth, death and marriage
certificates if these are available. You will also receive
considered professional advice on how to proceed the research
to the next stage.
