Rates

Standard rate
I charge a research rate of 30 euro per hour or part thereof.

Priority charge
I make a one-off charge of 30 euro to give your enquiry priority over other research.  This charge is payable in advance in addition to the deposit detailed below, and is non-returnable.

Deposit
I do not start any research before receiving a deposit of 120 euro.  At the standard rate, you get something like four hours' research (not necessarily all in one day) dedicated solely to your enquiry, plus a report summarising the research and what has been found.

Search Strategy
It is important for you to let me know everything you know already, so that the most economic search strategy can be formulated.  You do not want to have to pay unnecessary charges.

Certificates / Copies of Register Entries / Index References
None of the charges mentioned above entitles you to any Certificate, photocopy, image or reference I may obtain in the course of my research.  I can supply such documents or references for an extra charge.

Family tree
None of the charges mentioned above entitles you to any family tree (descendant tree or pedigree) I may produce in the course of my research.  I can supply such documents (on paper or in electronic form) for an extra charge.

Travel
Extra charges will apply for travel outside County Dublin.
