At Vivid Family Research, getting started is simple: your initial consultation is always free.
Answer a few basic questions about the history or family member you are interested in researching, and I will do the rest. Or, if you have a specific family research question or know which direction you want the research to go, I can tailor the report to meet any need you have.
In order to optimize your report and give you my full attention, I strive to work with a maximum of two clients at a time. After the research has started on your project, I will deliver a PDF report to you via email within 2 to 3 weeks (less than one week if your research is very narrow; possibly more than 3 weeks if your research is larger in scope). I may reach out to you for clarifying follow-up questions during your project, so please be available to respond.
If, after an initial search, no records or documents can be found for your research question/s, then you will be given a short report explaining all of the avenues taken to try to find the information and you will not be charged any fee.
In all my research, I commit to using the five elements of the Genealogical Proof Standard (GPS), the guideline for establishing proof and reaching a sound genealogical conclusion.
