Genealogy research projects can take from four to twenty hours for the initial block of hours.1 All projects are evaluated on a case-by-case basis with a recommended block of hours based on the evaluation.

As a rule of thumb:

  • Five-hour blocks are best-suited for basic questions, such as, “Who were the parents of ___ ?” Or “Where and when did ___ die?”
  • More complex projects, such as those involving DNA analsysis, brick wall ancestors and lineage society applications, require longer research times.2

A research report will be one of the following, delivered to you via email:

  • Traditional genealogy and/or DNA research: a source-cited analytical report of the research findings.*

– OR –

  • For lineage society projects: a source-cited lineage chart for each life event: birth, marriage, death, and child/parent connection.*

*Copies of source-cited documents can be ordered as an additional package.

  1. All research includes source analysis and interpretation of documents following the Genealogical Proof Standard as written and updated periodically by the Board for Certification of Genealogists.
  2. Mountain State Genealogy cannot guarantee the results of research. Likewise, due to varying society rules, Mountain State Genealogy cannot guarantee the acceptability of documentation to any lineage society.
