Sara's Tips:

Take a moment to reconnect with those from your past.  Family and friends are a great way to recharge your internal battery.  

I spent the weekend going through old photos and momentos from times past.  It gave me quite a few laughs AND reminded me how important these people were to me.

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.

I began my career as a professional genealogical researcher in 2002 after several years of researching my own family history.  I believe that continuing education is a fundamental part of enhancing each client's family history experience. As part of this, in 2015, I am happy to report that I completed the Professional Learning Certificate in Genealogical Studies from the National Institute for Genealogical Studies with distinction.
