This contract represents the understanding between you as the client and I, the researcher. Through the hiring of my services, you are hereby agreeing to the above mentioned aspects.

Please note the following research activities which I do NOT do:

Birth, Marriage or Death Records. (Please contact Home Affairs for this, though getting one of these is next to impossible. Barring a missing will of a direct deceased relative to whom you are next of kin, you are unlikely to be granted access to these records.)

Census Research – there really isn’t access to this.

Adoption or birth parent searches for people still living
