Sara's Genealogy Research

Sara's Tip of the Month:

February is starting out to be a continuation of cleaning out my genealogy files which I started in January.  I am also starting a few new projects.  

It always amazes me when I go through old files what I can now see as a new place to jump start my research.  Granted I have not looked at most of these files in years but reviewing and weeding them out has given me some new insights as to what projects should be started, sooner rather than later.  

It also helps that my files and book cases are a little less stuffed, at least for now, but I love when I get a new surge of inspiration where previously there had been none.    

So take some time and weed out your files or family tree pages.  Something just might inspire you to a new lead.  

Happy Hunting!

Sara is a member of the following genealogical organizations:

* National Genealogical Society
* Association of Professional Genealogists
* Ohio Genealogical Society

​Services include minimal to extensive family history research with the flexibility to handle special situations on a case by case basis.  Costs are based on hourly research fees and expenses are always extra.  Clients are kept informed along the way and given options, when available, to keep costs to a minimum.

All clients are offered a free initial consultation via email.  This begins with requesting a summary of any previous family history work you have done and what your ultimate goal is in this project.  The information is then reviewed and a research plan is formed to locate the information you are interested in.  Only after you have agreed to this plan is the retainer required to begin the actual research.  This process tends  to give the client a satisfying end result.
Sara Skotzke, PLCGS  began her career as a professional genealogical researcher in 2002 after several years of researching her own family history.  Her belief is that continuing education is a fundamental part of enhancing each client's family history experience.  As part of this, in 2015, Sara completed the Professional Learning Certificate in Genealogical Studies from the National Institute for Genealogical Studies with distinction.
