Become a Client

 

Greetings! And, thank you, for your interest in becoming a client.

As a general understanding, I cannot help everyone. I offer free consultations to gain an overview of your research project and gauge if I will be able to assist. For some, they may be better served elsewhere, and I am happy to guide you in the right direction. It comes down to a matter of specialization.

 

Research takes time and should not be rushed. Therefore, at times my schedule will become full, rendering me unable to take on new clients. Client research projects will be scheduled, and at times that schedule will become full. Some may wish to be added to a wait list, although that is not always ideal. 

 

Areas of Specialization:

  • American Genealogy (Mid-Atlantic Region, Upper South Region, Tri-State, Delmarva, Eastern US)

    • Early East Jersey Settlements

    • Native American Indian heritage of the Virginias

  • Scottish Genealogy

    • Clan Baird 

    • Early East Jersey Scottish Settlement

  • Genetic Genealogy

Start of Research ZOOM Conference

* I believe in getting to know my clients and it is good to have a face-to-face introduction to ensure all parties are comfortable and compatible with one another. This conference allows us to discuss the details of the research project at great length and allows the client to convey what they most wish to obtain from the research.

End of Research ZOOM Conference

* At the conclusion of your research package, we can schedule a ZOOM conference to discuss the findings. This allows me to share screen with the client and explain aspects of the research project.

Accepted Payment Method

* A Payment Request will be sent to your email, via PayPal, at the conclusion of your research package time allotment. 

* Payment is expected at the conclusion of each research package via PayPal, only.
