Terms & Conditions


Payment Terms

We offer a free initial consultation to discuss exactly what you are looking to find out, and the likelihood of successful research. At the time of agreement for research to be carried out by Amethyst Ancestry, a deposit of 50% of the total cost must be paid prior to any research being undertaken. The balance is due on completion of the research. All payments can be made by either debit/credit card or direct bank transfer.



The results of any investigations are dependent on the quality and reliability of the sources they are based on. All research is undertaken in good faith and, while we cannot guarantee it will be exhaustive, we will endeavour to ensure that our results are as detailed and accurate as possible.
