Professional Genealogy Research Services

Emidio Spinogatti is a professional genealogist and an official hiking guide based in Guardiagrele (Chieti), Abruzzo, Italy. Emidio Spinogatti, through Abruzzo Genealogy, provides a full range of genealogy research, analysis, evaluation, consultation, education and trip guide services for clients who are of legal age and capable to pay in advance for such professional services. Services are sold in pre-paid blocks of  time, effort and tasks that have been agreed upon with Customer for each specific project. Prior to purchase, Abruzzo Genealogy offers a free consultation to discuss goals, scope, and options with the potential Clients. Abruzzo Genealogy will then recommend the best research project (or projects) to satisfy Customer’s needs. However the customer confirms her/his choice with the purchase.

As the Client you recognize and accept that we utilize education, experience, expertise, efficiency, effort, and time to fulfill your specific research goals, but with no guarantee of the results. There are no guarantees, warranties or promises implied or otherwise given with regards to the results of research services, as it is not known in advance by us or the client whether the desired results can be obtained.

Client is required to supply Abruzzo Genealogy with the requested family history and genealogy information and instructions needed to perform the research. To assure the best quality of the results, to deliver completed job on time, and to avoid duplication of previous research efforts, the Client is required to provide the necessary family history and genealogy materials, records, documents, and information, and a written statement (also by e-mail) with mutually agreed-upon client focused research goals.

Services Agreement

Genealogy research projects are handled in the order that payment is received and that the required Client-provided family history and genealogy information is provided. Research projects are generally completed in 60-90 days. However, there may be times when a project will extend beyond this time frame depending upon receipt of correspondence from other parties, availability of resources, records acquisition, or unforeseen circumstances. In those situations we will keep you advised of changes to the estimated project completion date.

Payment for Professional Genealogy Research Services, including all options listed on this Website, and other marketing materials, pertain to the use of expertise and the time spent, and not to the research results. When research is conducted or professional services provided, Abruzzo Genealogy has no way of knowing in advance and in detail what will be found beforehand.

Research projects may at times require the purchasing of records from third parties. Known costs of these records will be billed to the client at the time they are ordered or at the completion of the project. If the costs are known, the client will be billed prior to ordering these records; if unknown, payment is expected prior to delivery of the finished job.
