Remote Researcher Rate: after first ten minutes, $15/hr Genealogy, $40/hr Other
You may call or email us with a research request. Questions requiring less than ten minutes inquiry we will answer for free; for others requiring up to three hours of research, we do for a fee. We search the translated portions of our collections to help you find an answer to your question. Contact our office by phone or email to talk with us before placing your memoir order. We do not have memoirs for all area Moravians – not all orders can be fulfilled.
We charge a standard fee for up to one hour’s work, prepaid online: $15 for family history inquiries, and $40 for other archival research requests. We will contact you with a fee estimate (at same pro-rated hourly fees) if the research will take longer. We limit remote research to three hours. If no clear answer is found, we will send you a list of all sources consulted during the research. It may take up to two weeks to answer some requests due to staff time constraints. Expedited requests, if possible, require a doubling of our research rates.
