  2. Karl-Michael Sala replies: Yes, & just how is it that we have the confidence to request large-size retainers from total strangers who live thousands of miles away across the ocean, residing on other continents?

    As one client emphatically stated: “With flair & panache!” OK, it was by electronic funds transfer (EFT)–but only after an excellent fact-finding, relationship-building, excellent conversation & email exchanges.

    Also, how does an 80+% success ratio sound? We found a need & are filling it by cracking & solving German Genealogy research cases! What a concept. Now THAT, my friends, is the “killer app.”

    We have now received $13,500 from just one client who found us on the internet for their German ancestry, genealogy & family history! We found pertinent data on each of the four lineages! One is inconclusive. The others are startling successes.

    One trip to Salt Lake City has already been accomplished; many microfilm & microfiche were read there & ordered into our local Family History Center.

    Now, for January 2011, we have been authorized to travel to two strategic locations for this same client. In both the North & the Southwest. For these, we have received our largest retainer–ever!

    FACTS & TRACK RECORD: Since 1979, Lynell & Karl-Michael Sala have found THOUSANDS of data, documents & images on ancestral family members for HUNDREDS of clients (paid expert consultative research) & patrons (volunteer FHC & private consultative work)! 10+% of our research efforts are pro bono.

    The retainer request amount is a mindset, but securing larger retainers for research does not happen very often. You see, most people actually & truly have thousands of $ of research that needs be done.

    But, we are not in the welfare business & genealogy Research is not welfare! The advent of the internet has caused many to say that “genealogy should be free.” OK, perhaps. But genealogy Research is not!

    Expensive? No, Ma’am. Expensive is when you spend 30 years just TRYING to find what we often find in one day! Some people spend thousands of $ just “visiting” Germany to just “see the land of their ancestors.” How would it be if we FIRST helped you find the specific village & introduce you to (historical images of data & documents of) your ancestral family members?

    Lois Jurss paid us $1,000 for something we found within one day–the name of the precise Polish (actually Prussia at the time) village whence her target ancestor originated: Tirschtiegel, Posen, Preussen; now Trzciel, Poznan, Poland. Was she upset? Heck, no. She’d been seeking that data for over a decade! We seek more clients like Lois.

    If you put “German Genealogist” in an online Search Engine, guess who comes up to the top of the list? Right. We do: GermanGenealogist.com. It is called Search Engine Optimization. Would you like to also be SEO’d? Email my webmaster: paj@webondb.com. Tell him his father-in-law sent you. Ask him just how my three fun, gorgeous grandchildren & daughter are doing{;>)

    The client via his office assistant had been trying in vain to do it on their own. In frustration & a desire for dual citizenship, they finally contacted me through this website. They subsequently called & emailed me from South Africa. I suppose there are not very many professional German Genealogists in his locale who could effectively handle his difficult cases.

    We ascertained precisely which of several Hillesheims was the correct one. We then found one ancestor not in that parish, but rather a neighboring parish entirely. Thank goodness within the target parish of Hillesheim Kreis Oppenheim (not Daun), we found mention of the male spouse of another person by the same last name had come from that second locale–just 3 kilometers down the road! Well, that now becomes a research hypothesis that will require some further on-site research. Priced any flights to Germany lately?

    After that case, we then scoured & exhausted the difficult records for the parish of Schakuhnen (or Schakendorf). Specifically, but along with other Doerfer (villages) within that parish: Luttkomanscheit, et var., which we ascertained was once known also as “Luttken.” All were once a part of Ostpreussen or East Prussia, but are now in Lithuania, a former Soviet Socialist Republic.

    If you ever published anything, you know what I mean when I say: Most of the ready-for-publication research is digitized, cropped, enlarged, analyzed, reported on, tweaked & uploaded by numerous specific family- & surnmame-oriented research reports on–oh, gosh–two different Mueller lines (Germany & Poland); Schwellnus/Szwelnus.

    Just since Memorial Day 2010, my research director wife & I, Karl-Michael Sala aka GermanGenealogist.com have cracked 7 cases in 7 locations! We have gone much deeper in quantity & quality!

    “Lynell & Karl! Please find my ancestors–before I become one!”
