Scottish Genealogical Research
Terms and Conditions
Research rates are those specified by ASGRA, currently being a minimum charge of GB £25 per hour, but more complex studies, and research for commercial clients, will be priced accordingly. A quote for the research will be given on request. The work is usually conducted in 3 or 6 hours packages.
With all new clients it is always asked that the first commission be paid in advance. If the research goes on longer, by mutual agreement, then we are quite happy to continue the work on an account basis.
