Project rates are $800/day
for an on-site research project. The cost breaks down as follows:
- $300 for airfare to and from Italy and travel expenses within Italy (including trains, buses, car rental, tolls and gas) after division by the 10 client research days on each trip;
$100 for daily lodging and food;
$400 for eight hours of research and report writing on each client research day.
This allows enough funds to cover expenses on weekends (when civil and church record offices are generally closed) and travel time (10 hours by car between Torino and Roma, another 10 hours between Roma and Sicilia on the autostrada in addition to the mileage to each research location).
