As an example, they point out that documenting one ancestral couple that was born after 1850 typically takes about 3 to 5 hours of research. As you go back in time, the number of hours of research required increases. Researching an ancestral couple born between 1780 and 1850 takes an average of 5 to 10 hours. Before 1780, you should plan on 10 hours or more.
