FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

IS IT POSSIBLE FOR ME TO COMPLETE THE SEARCH MYSELF?

Absolutely, it is possible. Depending on the quality of your matches you could do it yourself. It is how The DNA Detectives began after all,  by looking for their biological fathers. We have also gained a huge amount of experience from ur searches and conducting those for others, and that experience can be crucial in identifying the correct avenues to be explored in a successful search.

WHAT ARE YOUR FEES?

Our fees are £20 per hour for our research and report writing. Expenses incurred for copies of genealogical records are charged on top of this. We can produce either a standard report or an extended report to meet your needs. 

Please do get in contact for a free consultation to let us know your requirements and we will be better placed to give an estimate on the amount of research needed. 


We can set budgets from the start and provide regular updates so that you can stay in control throughout the process.  

HOW DO I KNOW THAT THE DNA DETECTIVES IS THE RIGHT AGENCY FOR ME?

We have different experiences and approaches to searches, but work collaboratively as a team to approach each case from multiple angles to ensure the best chance of success. 

As individuals we also have first hand experience of not knowing our origins and the impact it has, and are passionate about helping as many people as possible. We can relate and empathise with you and your situation. 

CAN YOU GUARANTEE YOU'LL FIND THE ASNWERS I AM LOOKING FOR?

Unfortunately not, while "DNA does not lie", sometimes the qualitative information in genealogical records does. And some people do not have sufficient numbers of quality DNA matches to provide results to the questions they are seeking answers too.
