The Most Frequently Asked Questions
How far do you generally go back?
Generally I go back as
far as I can go, each family is different, but record keeping and genealogies
in Jamaica can go back to 1655, the date of the English invasion of Jamaica.
For example if I wanted to trace both sides of
lines are admissible under the current one week fee, however after
that additional lines carry an additional flat rate.
Do you provide a report for us to take?
Report is provided , outlining all the findings , source of
documentation and a Sketch Lineage chart , if you wish me to expand
the report further into a book then that would have a specialty fee applied
based on the quantity of time it would take to format the book.
Wills and deeds are they included or a separate charge?
and deeds are included up to a certain amount , however if you exceed that
amount I will use my discretion and determine whether to
divert your remaining search hours into documents, I rarely charge separately
for these but the client can opt to offset the additional cost rather
than loose research hours.
If I pay for two weeks of research, is that
generally sufficient to identify/locate a few generations back?
as there are no significant research difficulties encountered two weeks can
many times yield several generations, however you would be told of
the difficulties encountered in the report. And in the long run two weeks is merely
a recommendation, the decision is always in the hands of the prospective client,
whether to opt for one week or two weeks, when starting the project.
hope I satisfactorily answered all your concerns, and if you have any
more questions please feel free to ask.
