COSTS

It is extremely difficult to estimate the cost of a genealogical research, because different factors must be taken into account as each family has its own history, so every research is “unique”.

The preliminary feasibility study is free.

The actual cost of the search will be shown in custom quote, however here are average example costs:

Of course it is possible to continue research for all family trees on all lines, or on just one, even for periods following 1920 (search of living relatives) and before 1820 up to the sixteenth century.

It all depends on available sources (see FAQ) and the maximum budget that you want to invest.

You are asked to pay 50% in advance and the remaining 50% at the end of the research.

Costs are not liable to VAT (22%) but 4% is requested for partial Tax refund for Social Security Service
