As I am beginning to start out, I wanted to offer different options for people since it may interest some to pay hourly or to pay a standard rate that will guarantee so many days and hours of work. Find my going rates below!
Hourly Rate Option
If you're the type of person who maybe doesn't want to commit to a large amount of hours up front, I am offering the option to pay for a set amount of hours with a minimum of at least 3 hours up to an unlimited number of hours.*
$20 per hour
*Compare to the price of bigger companies' services of requiring a minimum of 20 hours starting at over $2,000 (over $90/hr)
Daily Rate Option
For those who know they have extensive research they would like to have done, I have different "packages" with a set number of days you would pay for on a daily rate, in which I guarantee at least 2 hours of work per day (often it is more because I can easily get lost in my work). If you choose one of these packages, you will notice you save money this way.
5 Days Set Rate: $35 per day, guaranteed at least 2 hours per day
14 Days Set Rate: $35 per day, guaranteed at least 2 hours per day
There will be an additional $5 fee if it is requested that I print out records and mail them instead of or in addition to electronically providing the results.
Methods of Payment
I will accept payments in cash and card, including Venmo, sorry no checks. My policy is to have the first half of the service paid for before I begin, and then when I have fulfilled the hours or daily limit, and give my results, I will require the second half of the payment.
Are you wondering how I can guarantee to you that I will work the hours you're paying me for? Here is how I will track my hours and be able to show you!
I use a free service called Clockify, which tracks the amount of time I spend per project each day. I am then able to save and send those reports to you to show that I am putting in the hours. Piece of cake! (Here's a link to the site for those curious about it: Clockify)
As adisclaimer, there is a possibility that I may not be able to find much information depending on the initial information given to me about your family or because the records simply don't exist or are inaccessible. I am unfortunately not the NSA, but the resources I do have access to should provide us with some information!
What Clients Are Saying
"Ashley was enthusiastic about helping me find out more about my family. She was incredibly thorough with her results. I felt comfortable working with her because of her confidentiality agreement... I would highly recommend her services to anyone interested in looking into their ancestry."
"In a short amount of time, Ashley was able to find family information about some specific questions that I had regarding ancestry stories... She also provided suggestions for further research and resources to dig up more family information."
