Terms and Conditions

Bullet
By authorising Past Discoveries to commence research you agree to these terms and conditions which is the contract between Past Discoveries and yourself.
Bullet
Your initial consultation will be free of charge.
Bullet
Past Discoveries will send all research by special delivery postage to be signed for. If personal information has been sent to us this will be returned at the same time.
Bullet
Past Discoveries does not undertake any work regarding Heir Searches or any such work whereby there are disputes regarding descendants of any deceased person. Past Discoveries will not be liable for any work undertaken whereby this has not been disclosed or mentioned at the beginning of research.
Bullet
Past Discoveries reserves the right to decline research such as “John Smith from London born circa. 1900” as the likelihood for success would be low.
Bullet
Past Discoveries will carry out the research as agreed with the client whether it be Bespoke Research or a Family History Research Package. A guarantee of success cannot be given as research is dependent on external factors and also as to whether documents have survived. My time spent researching is still chargeable even if the conclusion is a NIL result.
Bullet
Full and final payment is due nearing completion of the research. No report or bound book will be provided to the client unless full payment has been received and cleared.
Bullet
We will not pass research data to any third party without your permission. In the likelihood that research needs to be undertaken out of my research areas then you would be consulted with beforehand to confirm permission. In this event I would commission the services of a qualified genealogist close to the archive where the research needs to be undertaken.
Bullet
A research commission can be cancelled at any time providing that any research already undertaken or any part of a report already completed is paid for in full at the time of cancellation.
Bullet
Any charges such as copies of documentation, travel expenses, photography permits and other charges such as copies of wills obtained during the research will be charged on completion of the research commission.
Bullet
During a research commission it may become apparent that various records are missing from archival repositories and so in the event of records not being found then my time spent researching will be charged for.
Bullet
The copyright of all reports supplied remains with Past Discoveries. Reports are for your sole and family use only and may not be reproduced in any form. Reports cannot be uploaded to the internet including Ancestry family trees or your personal website without the express written permission of Lisa Dunbar at Past Discoveries.
Bullet
This Contract has been devised under English Law and is governed by the UK Court jurisdiction only.
