The Regional Archives
1. I will dedicate four hours to research sources based on the information you have given me. 
2. After four hours I will contact you and give you a brief description of the information I have found.
3. If I have not been able to identify what you are looking for you pay a basic fee of SEK 300 (the primary search only) and I will send you information on the sources I have searched and anything else I may have come upon that may be relevant to you search.
4. If I have been able to identify what you wanted to find you may want to stop the research and receive the final report as is, you pay for the four hours, at an hourly rate of SEK 650, after which I will send you the final report.
5. You can decide that you want to continue after the four hours. If you do, we will set up an agreement and work towards a new goal.
6. After each milestone you can decide to opt out and pay for the hours worked and receive the final report.
