Please do not hesitate to reach us on firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like us to help you decide which components you need
or at any other step of the process.
Research & Report
Once you get in touch and provide all of the relevant information, we will do an initial archival and location survey based on the pointers you provide.
This generally takes three weeks, and results in a report of our findings, which will be provided to you via email.
The report can include: any information that we find about your family history in Kolkata and beyond, a map with important locations marked, pictures from street surveys, newspaper clippings, historical photographs, and any other information that we glean from the research. However, please note that due to the nature of archival data not all of these will be available for any one project.
The report also includes an assessment of whether further, in-depth research is possible. Based on this assessment, you can choose whether you would like us to continue researching. The fees for this vary on a case-by-case basis, and include a longer report with the additional information.
Fee for 3-week basic research: INR 10,000 (USD 150)
Bespoke Family History Trail
If you would like to visit places associated with your family history in Kolkata and the rest of West Bengal, we can provide bespoke walking tours, day tours, or longer trails in consultation with you.
The construction of the trail can be based on either the research done by us (Component 1) or your own research.
We will work closely with you to design the trail and will provide expert guidance throughout the tour.
Please get in touch with us at least 3 months in advance for trails outside of Kolkata. For walking tours and day tours within the city, please get in touch with us at least 2 weeks ahead of time.
Fees vary based on the nature of the trail
