Genealogy Questions

Research Charges


There will be no charge for this service unless research is required as indicated below. However, all responses do involve the time of a genealogist or researcher.  If you feel that the response has been useful and wish to know more about the Burnetts and Crathes, a purchase of our small recently published book People and Painting, would be appreciated. Whilst not including detailed genealogy, it provides an easily read account of the Burnetts and the building of Crathes. The Holly and The Horn includes much genealogical information. Both books are obtainable through the Shop 


A. If research is required, you will be advised of the charge or estimated maximum charge.

B. If it is not possible to give an estimate of the charge, we would be pleased to carry out research for a maximum of charge of £ ..……. to include time to be spent @ £15.00 per hour + any research expenses. You may wish us to carry out this work in stages in order to minimise the cost and to enable you to see whether any further research is required.


Scottish Records Office make a charge of £6 for access to the details on any relevant record. It should be noted that details on more recent records may not be accessible in this way, in which case we will advise as to how to order these directly.

Payment can be made by Paypal / Credit card in advance of any research. If you wish to proceed with A or B,  please insert £……  as above and reply and  we will forward to you a Paypal invoice.
