Our rates for German Genealogists for hire? Hmm. Anywhere from $0 & up

One German genealogy client offered me $1,000 to ascertain for certain the place of origin in Poland of her ancestor. Did I earn it? In about 4 hours. $250/hr. Worth it? Of course, She had already paid some $3,000 & NEVER COULD FIND IT. Here it is. can you read it? OK, ’tis Tirschtiegel now known as Trzciel in Poland. Why, yes there are records available for this location, both online & on microfilm. did the client pay me yet more to continue the research? Thousands. www.german1907 Poland powiatygenealogist.comTirschtiegel enlarged & highlighted

Free German Genealogy Research? We gave away $50,000 worth. Creditors hate us for having done so. How about those who received the help?

We have granted some $50,000+ of pro bono research online. We have cracked hundreds of cases. Hey, some folks even paid us for it. We have done soo many WORKSHOPS over the years. We loved educating others, Lynell Pierce Sala & I are now soo busy researching, finding, analyzing, extracting & jubilating over our European records’ findings, that we no longer accept these offers of lunch, bed & breakfast & a smile. Now, ’tis airfare, hotel & substantial stipend. How much? If I told you, you’d claim I am greedy, haha. No, the greed comes from others–not us. http://www.germangenealogist.com/about-us-lynell-karl-michael-sala/G Handschrift variants

Westward Migration of German Genealogy (& others)

Revealing my family history & westward-ho (migration), homesteading bias, I had a Civil War veteran ancestor who pretty much did what Christopher Walken did in Sarah: Plain & Tall & Skylark–had a mail-order bride (after the death of the mother of his children). The ensuing actions, challenges, drama, love & death are breath-taking to this biased descendant. I have NO image of him, so the data, documents & perhaps this image must just have to suffice. I now help others to get in touch with their ancestral family members’ data, documents & images. http://www.germangenealogist.com/about-us-lynell-karl-michael-sala/

No, we have not paid the BBB anything. Nonetheless, they have rated us A+. They were able to see through the folly of an unreasonable complaint by someone against The German Genealogist aka GermanGenealogistDOTcom. Therefore I would recommend the BBB Arizona. I had erroneously presumed that they would always stand by the customer–no matter what. However, the BBB Arizona realized, based on ours & other cases, that the customer has sometimes unreasonable expectations & is NOT always right. I am pleased that the BBB Arizona could see that we always give our customers TWICE that for which they pay! Why? It is just our modus operandi. We love what we do. Since 1979, we have granted about $50,000 worth of research, pro bono. We also have some rave WRITTEN reviews on BBB & on Linkedin (160+). Find us someone with more WRITTEN endorsements & you get a free consultation from us{:>)bbb A+

This Is As Good As It Gets
after we crack a case for a client:
RE: Family History Research
Jon Eicher
To: Karl-Michael Sala GermanGenealogist.com
Dear Lynell and Karl,
I don’t know if you can see the DNA page of my ancestry.com account, but it appears you are right about Joseph Eicher and Ellen Nellie Cartwright being the parents of William Eicher. I now have four different DNA matches on Ellen’s sister Rachel!
Just wanted to share the excitement and thank you again for your help.
Thanks!
