My research time is charged at US $75 per hour. In addition, I will charge for the cost of any films that I need to have brought to the San Diego Family History Center on a temporary basis from the Family History Library in Salt Lake City, copies of documents, charges for records that need to be obtained, delivery charges for work product, and temporary access to special records (if that is found to be necessary). Out of area travel for research will be discussed with you and your approval will be obtained before it is undertaken.
I require a US $300 retainer which will be applied to the final statement. Either of us can cancel this agreement by notifying the other that we wish to do so. I will try to update you periodically to review status and findings and to provide you with an account of my time and expenses, approximately on a monthly basis. Payment for time and expenses is to be made as they are presented and in US $. I will send or deliver the product of my work to you.
