Karl is always willing to help others. He has done pro-bono work for others and been quite successful in finding links to missing families. From comments of his clients, he does a thorough job with documentation. I have seen many praises to the success he has been able find for others w/ researching their family lines. I just wished I had German or Prussian ancestors. I know that Karl would be successful in searching for my ancestors.

Karl-Michael has been a great help in my research for my ancestral family in Pomerania. Not only did he help me decipher Tishhage to Dischenhagen, but I now know more about German script, then when I first started. He has shown me the differences in the way they would write certain letters. He would ask me to compare letters to other words in the text. An example would be the way the letter M was written. What I thought was a W, he would have me look for other words that had Ws in the word. I was able to tell the village was Schmintz and not Schwintz. I am now able to search through documents and church records on my own. Every once in awhile, I will find myself stumped, and Karl will jump right in and help me out. I have only great praise for him and I think he would be a wonderful asset to any genealogy group.

Karl-Michael Sala provided invaluable assistance in finding that my grandmother’s birthplace was not Bochem, Germany but was in fact Alt Bialcz! This is completely new information for my family and I never would have been able to find this information without Karl-Michael’s help! You cannot go wrong working with him for your genealogy needs!

Karl has been an invaluable help in researching my German family that lived in Celle. I’m plannning to make a trip to Germany in the fall and am looking forward to seeing where my greatgrandmother grew up and was married. I couldn’t have known this without his help.

I have worked with Karl-Michael Sala on the FamilySearch Genealogy Research Communities on Facebook for the past two years. He has graciously volunteered his time and expertise to our pages especially in Germany and Poland. We have had a great success rate as a team in solving patron’s lines connecting them in Germany. This has been difficult at times because we only see part of the information and because many times the town’s names have been misspelled. It is also hard because of boundary changes. Karl Michael expertise has solved these difficult problems. With Karl-Michael’s help we have answered many questions on how to do research in these countries and helped with translations of documents. Karl-Michael has added “spice” to our pages and we appreciate his help very much.

Karl-Michael has helped me research one of my lost family members. He is incredibly knowledgeable about genealogy research as well as Germany. I’ve been very fortunate to have met up with him on FaceBook through Family Search’s Germany/Prussia Research page. He spent hours offering me suggestions on places to look for information and offering moral support to keep me going. I’m forever in his debt.

I posted a question on a Facebook page about German Genealogy, and I must say, Karl-Michael Sala is amazing! I just began taking over my Peters family history from my mother and Karl was able to point me in the right direction. He then did “extra” work for me without me even knowing it! He digs deep and does it very quickly! He finds stuff that I have been looking for, for years! Thank you Karl! You are AMAZING!!!!!!
