Long story short, in the midst of an online chat, Stefanie Mickle Hobson wrote: “Great! Wow..I can’t believe how fast you’re finding this stuff..how cool is that? [Within minutes, in real-time, after I coached her on how to invite me as an Editor to her tree, I IMMEDIATELY found numerous data, documents & images!] …
Stefanie wrote later: “…wow that’s impressive. Great Karl, thank you so much! Exactly..I have been looking in all the wrong places, and you have already found information that I couldn’t!”
“Very please[d] with the information he has found for me..and it was all in just a few hours of time! Ancestry dating back to the 1700’s, and he found it so quickly! Thanks Karl, you’re the best!”
“In the past, I have attempted to research my family history. I have always thought it interesting to find out who my ancestors were, did they sign the Declaration of Indepence, or were they criminals with Billy the Kid. I wanted the information, but didn’t want to do the work. Last night, I stumbled onto a FB page called Onward to the Past, and there I saw the name Karl-Michael Sala, and I asked him if I find a few names could he help me? After putting my Family Tree on Ancestry.com, Karl found many names I had not even heard of, dating back to the 1700’s, and in just a few short hours’ time! He has a wealth of information at his fingertips, and comes up with a lot of information you don’t even know is out there! Extremely pleased with the work he has done, thanks a bunch Karl! You’re the best!”
She went on to state her commitment to spread
the word about our amazingly rapid-research time. I quickly cherry-picked & found NUMEROUS data, documents & images & posted them to SEVERAL specific individuals in her MICKEL Family Tree.
After having advised her to be wary of the early-era research posted (due to lack of documentation), we proved to her that Neither the two target ancestors–Nor their parents–had been born in Germany.
Going back a few generations, we get a place of origin, but the documentation is sooo weak, that we asked her to take it all with a grain of salt–that is, until we can do the raw, original research for her.
