160+ online Linkedin.com Endearing Endorsements, Commendations & Kudos from coaches, colleagues & clients for this gifted & talented researcher--& that's just since July 2008! & that's just from folks who happen to be on Linkedin! http://www.Linkedin.com/in/germangenealogist
Karl has received hundreds more offline client letters of gratitude & commendation since 1979. This, due to Karl's having found ancestral data, often within MINUTES, that other researchers either did not, could not or would not find.
Since 1979, THOUSANDS of data, documents & images for THOUSANDS of ancestral family members for HUNDREDS of clients' ancestral family members have been found by The German Genealogist!
After THOUSANDS of hours of German Genealogy research, in 1984, Karl-Michael Sala was accredited as a German Genealogist by the Family History Library of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. After more than a decade of absolutely stunning successes for his clients, Karl was run into by a drunk pick-up truck driver. This 1995 near-death experience ultimately caused that his accreditation was involuntarily pulled. This was to protect the name of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. However, since '95, along with Karl's recovery, Karl has had more success than ever for clients, patrons, himself & his living family members!
Since 1980, Karl has traveled 7 times behind the former Iron Curtain to East Germany to successfully exhaust hundreds of parish registers of the target ancestral family members.
Karl is a former USAFR Intelligence Officer who earned a Deserving Airman Commission while he had been serving as an Intelligence Operations Specialist & Linguist (German), Interrogator, Debriefer (non-commissioned officer at that time)
Karl is the very 1st person hand-picked for the Paid Expert Ancestry Research Line at Ancestry.com. His wife, Lynell Sala was the 2nd person selected for their short-lived, but highly successful Paid Expert Research Team!
When that project was abandoned, because of his language & research skills, Karl was promoted to taking the majority of research-oriented emails & phone calls from Europe for Ancestry.de, the Deutschland, i.e. Germany, version of Ancestry.com!
As the primary European ancestral genealogy & family history research consultant, Karl served Europeans in their native German language. This further fulfills blessings he had been given earlier in his life.
On the Ancestry.com International Team, Karl served as a consultant for Australia, Austria, Great Britain & mainland Europe! He cracked & solved many cases in those diverse locations.
For their clients, Karl & Lynell have found data & documents on thousands of living & deceased persons. The German Genealogist has solved cases that others said "can't be done!"
Just since Memorial Day 2010, Lynell & Karl-Michael Sala have cracked 6 cases in 6 locations! Germany (4), Lithuania (Littau, i.e East Prussia or Ostpreussen), Poland (5) (Posen or Poznan), Atlantic Ocean & the USA.
Indeed, Karl-Michael Sala is a Master German Genealogist!
Hi, I could use some help. I have a Bischoff family that I could use some assistance researching the German end of things- back into 1645. Would you be able to offer any kind of specific assistance in this? Please email me at Nancye1962@gmail.com– I’ve at least got several really specific questions I’d rather ask you by email than on the public forum. Thanks in advance for your help- it’s rather important.

“…rather Important,” indeed. We feel your ancestors want to be found & they care about you-n-yours. Whether you agree is irrelevant, but if it helps us to do great work for you, that is all that matters in your case.
We grant you a 50% discount on your initial research retainer, either online or in microfilms. Your personal check is just fine.
However, why do you say “…it’s rather important”? Explain… Forget explaining. I just read a bit about you & Jim. People in your situation get an on-going 50% discount for microfilm or online research.
Besides the YouTube video, to which you replied, how did you find us? What were you searching when you found the video?
29 Jun 2011: 2 cases cracked for another client. One Polish; the other German; yes, they married!
On both lineages (JANETZKI & KRAUSE) we found ancestral family members (children) whom had been missed by another German researcher.
Nancy, a couple other things to beef up your genealogy capabilities, stance & situation.
Two clients in the last two years paid us $14,000 APIECE. Had they been your referrals, you would have earned $2800–even if we sealed the deal. So, that said, get busy & find some folks who HAVE SOME CAPITAL (probably unlike you & us) & would be interested in hiring someone to research their USA, immigration or USA ancestry.
We accept retainers usually from $1,000 up to $100,000, but, based on your situation, if that’s out of the question, send what you can from $100 to $1,000.
Sign up for free on Linkedin like Jim, but create your own individual file. Request that I connect with you. Karl Sala or german genealogist, either one will pull me up.
