Research in online records and genealogical databases, and on-site research
We are lucky enough in France to benefit for our genealogical researches from a large number of online records. They vary from state (French « départements ») to state, but often include Vital records, Parish registers, even military records, census… It can allow the family researcher to trace his/her family ancestry back to the XVIIth century. You can find here all the records online by state.
Yvon Généalogie conduct the researches in online French genealogical databases, but because quality of sources is prominent, use mainly these online records. They provide us with primary sources (while avoiding travel expenses).
For other types of records (Land and Property, Tax, Wills records, Court records…) but also newspapers for example, on-site research in the Archives repositories is necessary.

We bill our services based on the number of hours required. This number is defined in the quotation, and we never bill more hours than we’ve actually spent doing the research. Our hourly rate is €42. We may also charge a flat fee, for example to try and find a brick wall ancestor (from €105, whatever the time spent).
