Genealogy Services

More than 30 years of doing genealogical research in Canada, especially Quebec and New Brunswick and back to England and Scotland, have prepared me to help others with their own research both online and at archival centres.

Genealogy Research Services

Initial Consultation and Research Review (1 hour)

Send me a summary of the work that has been conducted previously.  I will look it over and consider whether and where to look further.  We can discuss further research and if you choose, you can hire me to do if for you.

Do you not know where to start?  Or, maybe you just want help finding a specific document.

Sharing my screen with you on Zoom, we will search for your family history online, accessing several databases and websites depending on what it is you are researching.  

The main resources I have subscriptions/access to: (world edition)
Newspapers+ Publishers Extra
ScotlandsPeople (access, searches free, documents cost additional)

I also have a broad knowledge of how to best use FamilySearch, Library and Archives Canada, Canadiana Heritage, Quebec Archives and more.

Zoom Oral History Interview

In these days when it is so hard to get together in person, there is no need to put off interviewing a family member to preserve the stories they have told you or learn more details about their younger years.

If you can get in front of a computer with a camera, I can interview and record anyone (in English).  You will get the recording with a transcription.  
50 minute interview:  $145

I can send you a list of questions to consider in advance. You can choose what you most want to talk about.


Maybe you already have an audio or video recording that you would like to have transcribed.  As long as I have the equipment to access the recording, I can transcribe it for you. 
1 hour of audio/video:  $90 

Document Request

For documents which need to be requested from a government or archives:
For example - an original birth, marriage, death document from the UK, Wills, Quebec marriage license...

Client signature/authorization may be required. 
Cost from source + $15.00 CAD
