All of this makes our  research  more thorough and informative than just the basic reporting of dates and places of important family events.

Fees for Charts and Family Group Sheets (individually and in booklet format), calendars and maps, pages presenting some combinations of photos and scanned documents will be based on the number of pages, the number of booklets, and the number of color images to be included.
