 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 the family?  

Two 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?  

A 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?  

Wills 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 long 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.  

I do hope I satisfactorily answered all your concerns, and if you have any more questions please feel free to ask.
