Family History Research and Document Retrieval



The research fee includes research, document retrieval, document copying, and report writing. I am able to search birth records, death records, marriage records, land records, chancery cases, probate cases, and more. If you are not sure about a certain record type, do not hesitate to ask! A minimum fee of $25.00 will be charged per research request, but the number of documents retrieved and scanned during that time depends on the number of pages in that document and the number of records requested. I will perform an initial assessment of each request and send an estimate before retrieving any documents.To maximize my time and to minimize fees, take a look at the Champaign County Historical Archives catalog and send a list of items you wish to receive.
