Treasured Lives FirstGlance™ — This is a great way to test the waters and see what’s out there. Just one hour of research with a written report for only $40.00. Pick an ancestor on one side of the family and let’s see what we can find! FirstGlance also makes a great birthday present or holiday gift.

Treasured Lives QuickScan™ — A good beginner’s choice: three hours of research with a written report for $89.95. You will be surprised at how much information and how many leads can be unearthed using the QuickScan option.

Treasured Lives DeepScan™ — This option gets into some serious digging: six hours of research with a full written report for $169.95.

Treasured Lives Dossier™ — If you know you want to jump into genealogy with both feet, this is your best option. The Dossier includes 12 hours of history research and full written report for $325.95. The Dossier has enough research time to get started on different sides of the family.

videos5Video Remembrance — We can take your old photographs, video clips, maps and documents and create a tribute to a particular relative or an entire family. To keep this option affordable, we use a simple pan-and-zoom method (sometimes called the Ken Burns effect) to bring life to still photos and documents. Add in a soundtrack and basic graphics and you have a nice presentation as a gift or for a family event. Prices start at $149.00 for a three-minute video on DVD and posted online. Longer videos can be quoted based on your specifications.

Digital Photo Repair — We scan your old photograph from prints, mounted boards, slides or negatives, then retouch blemishes, water damage, scratches and other imperfections. Then we balance color and tone to remove unsightly artifacts caused by aging. The result is close to what your relative saw the day the photo was taken. Starting at $85 per image.

Image Scanning — $15 per image. Files scanned at 300 dpi, saved as JPEG and TIFF files. Price includes basic tone/color correction, but not retouching.
