The Bad

  • Fees
  • Pay per hour

Since you are hiring a professional genealogist to do your family history, fees are pricier than the normal self-searching site. Pricing is based per hour, starting at $100 per hour for 3.5 hours. There are different packages to choose from with the most popular being $90 per hour for 20 hours.

Another negative is once the hours are complete, the research is done. It doesn’t matter if there is more information to be found or not. Since is based per hour, research stops once the designated hours are complete.
