Research Services Pricing

Research service fees are charged to cover the expenses incurred by AHSGR in performing research for members and non-members. All requests for research incur a base and hourly fee except for Russian Archives Records research.

  • The Base Fee will be paid upfront to hold your place in the Research Request Queue.
  • Save on your Research Fees by becoming an AHSGR Member.
  • First, you will submit your online Research Request.
    • Please limit your Research Request to ONE SURNAME at a time.
  • When AHSGR receives your Request, a staff member will reach out to you and work with you to complete a Research Plan.
  • Once the Research Plan is agreed on, the Base Fee is due.
  • As soon as AHSGR receives the Base Fee payment, your Research Request will be placed in our Request Queue.
    • AHSGR completes Requests in the order in which they are received.
    • Due to the high volume of Requests and the time need to complete each request, there may be a 3-4 week wait period.
  • AHSGR staff will contact you for the final payment of the Hourly Fee that was estimated and agreed upon in the Research Plan.
  • Once final payment is received a Research Report, and any additional supporting documents will be sent.
  • All fees are applicable even if AHSGR staff is unable to find information pertinent to the request because considerable time and effort is still required.
