We are a private historical archives that receives no public funding. Our resources are very limited and we often receive in excess of 100 emails per day. Having an accurate and precise subject line can make the difference between receiving a response and having your email deleted or ignored.
We have a "Five-Minute" rule for responding to email inquiries. If we think we can compose a response in five minutes, we make every effort to do so. Unfortunately we lack the resources to respond to inquiries too detailed or complex.
The Future of Our Past
We would love to provide everything for free, but our management prefers that our website remain in operation for future generations. Otherwise, we risk becoming a part of the past as well.
Five-Minute Response Rule
We respond to emails using a five-minute rule as a guide. If the question can be answered in five minutes, your likelyhood of a response increases substantially. If your query is complex or will likely take some research time, we recommend summiting your question to a genealogy related blog to obtain a response.
While we appreciate your business, we are currently not accepting new research clients.
