Genealogy services, ancestry and family tree research projects are unique in terms of each set of historical circumstances, and each research request is different. The costs of genealogy research can and will vary depending on your individual requirements but indicative costs for standard packages are shown in New Zealand dollars below.
There is no “one size fits all” when it comes to researching your family tree, and all enquiries are welcome. Don’t hesitate to ask any question, big or small. Just head to the Contact Us page from the menu above and select ‘other’ on the drop down menu under the package icon or alternatively simply send an email with your query to [email protected]
A short questionnaire will be sent to identify your needs and then a no obligation quote will be presented for your approval. My genealogist for hire services are extremely competitive! Other genealogists are charging up to $75 per hour.
