BCG is a non-profit organization that certifies researchers who conduct research for others.  We do not contract to do research projects ourselves. We do not refer researchers. Use the link below to search the directory for a Certified Genealogist.  The list includes persons who accept clients as well as some who do not. Most researchers charge an hourly rate plus expenses. Contact researchers directly to determine their fees and services before hiring one.
