The Most Frequently Asked Questions 

How far do you generally go back?

Generally I go back as far as I can go, each family is different, but record keeping and genealogies in Jamaica can go back to 1655, the date of the English invasion of Jamaica. 

For example if I wanted to trace both sides of the family?

Two lines are admissible under the current 14 hour fee, however after that additional lines carry additional hours.

Do you provide a report for us to take?

A Report is provided , outlining all the findings , source of documentation and a Sketch Lineage chart , if you wish me to expand the report further into a book then that would have a specialty fee applied based on the quantity of time it would take to format the book. 

Wills and deeds are they included or a separate charge? 

Wills and deeds are copied at a separate charge, and are subject to changes that are beyond my control, as they are the fees charged by the institutions and archival repositories.

If I pay for two separate 14 hour segments of research, is that generally sufficient to identify/locate a few generations back?  

As long as there are no significant research difficulties encountered this is enough time to yield several generations back, however you would be told of the difficulties encountered in each report. 

I do hope I satisfactorily answered all your concerns, and if you have any more questions please feel free to ask.
