  1. I think #5 is the least used, but most needed, reason to hire a professional genealogist. Many of the clients I’ve interacted with are quite capable of achieving their own research goals with just a little more education, training and understanding. They’ve already expressed a dedication to finding their family by hiring a pro. I love coaching them through the process.

    Beautiful site Yvette!

    • Thank you Rorey! I have recently taken on a few clients who hired me to be their coach. We will go over their brick walls together, analyze the information and craft a research plan. That is such a great way to do projects for both the client and the professional!
