If we research your family history we will:
· Enter your family history information into the Family Tree Maker software to create your database.
· Print a family tree diagram of your ancestors:
· Provide a Kinship Report or all the persons in the database
· Provide a Genealogy Report.
· Provide you with a CD ROM with the information recorded in Family Tree Maker format and in GEDCOM format.

· Since genealogy research has no guarantees, the total cost is up to you on how much you want to spend. It largely depends on how much information about your ancestors you can provide in the beginning and how difficult the research is.
· Our basic research is by an hourly charge plus the costs of ordering films, and other incidentals such as postage and mailing, copy costs, etc. Usually we like to start out with a four hour committment and a deposit of $120. After four hours you will be informed of the progress and some estimate of what is next. It is your choice on how far to continue.
· You can call or e-mail to discuss your situation.

 We also offer for sale the book, "Finding Your Ancestral Village in the Old Austro-Hungarian Empire."
