RE: Family History Research

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!

DNA vs REAL German Genealogy research?!

Karl-Michael Sala  October 25 at 6:42pm · Chandler, AZ ·

Annette Unrau Adams in re: DNA vs paper trail

October 25 2015
“But from my mother’s side I am aware that there may be Lithuanian, and Hungarian ancestors, I wonder if there is another test that shows that, but for now, I will have to rely on a hard to track paper trail, which requires time, and $$$ and possibly help from people like Karl-Michael Sala. I know he does an excellent job finding records. But for now, I have to go with what I know.”
We’ve had success in difficult-to-decipher Lithuanian records for a South African client, Otto Müller. Hungarian for Bonnie Balogh Rosado. Right, Bonnie?

Bonnie Balogh RosadoBonnie Balogh Rosado You are so right, Karl-Michael! You have blessed me and my entire family with so much information about my [Hungarian] ancestors that we never knew. I will forever be grateful, my friend and brother. heart emoticon

Omega Jade, a popular music band in 1975, was once served by Karl-Michael Sala, a bass guitarist & back-up vocalist, who is now a highly successful Germany Genealogist for hire!+++

wow u r stunning

Karl-Michael Sala is a former bass guitarist & high-harmony back-

jade guitarup vocalist for Omega Jade. That popular music & dance band, in 1975, in Montana, served as the warm-up group for Styx, REO Speedwagon, Dr. Hook & the Medicine Show & Rare Earth. In July 1974, in Great Falls, Montana, while stationed at Malmstrom Air Force Base, Karl (then known as “Mike” investigated & ultimately joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. These are also known as the “Mormons” due to the Book of Mormon: Another Testament of Jesus Christ). Having subsequently desired to then serve a mission, Karl trained another bass player to take his place.

1976-77: Elder Sala was known as a very successful missionary in Germany. Long, but great story… Now, Karl does some great solos, harmonies & bass runs within international online & offline database & image-bases.Blue Christian LDS badge

Multi-year client now adds even more kudos for online & on-phone expert consultations by The German Genealogists, Karl-Michael Sala

Cathy Balmer

So thankful that we are able to work with Karl-Michael Sala, just 45 minutes away from us and a phone call when necessary. He’s been helping Walter work on his Promnitz Family line. He was hired on at Ancestry when they first started their European research group. He makes excellent and very logical conclusions. He suffered a T[B]I [in 1995] … Ancestry decided to let him go. Since that time, he’s become a good friend and is a great genealogist. He has his own web site at www.Germangenealogist.com. His helpfulness and expertise is sound. Highly recommended. Points out things the amateur could easily overlook. Check out his web site and give him a call to see if he can help you through any of those brick walls you might have. Tell him Cathy and Walter H. Balmer Jr. referred you to him. You will not regret it!

2015 Aug 29: Just deposited a New Client’s $3,000 retainer for Germany Genealogy research by the Germany Genealogists Dynamic Duo: Lynell & Karl-Michael Sala!

2013 PhoenixAward for GenealogistJust received our newest client’s $3,000 retainer. He found me by having googled “German Genealogist” That’s what I’m talkin’bout{:>)

We occasionally need a USA &/or European records searcher, runner, etc. to research, copy & digitalize for us some images within books & microforms IN SLC @ the FHL & at records repositories across the USA, Canada & Europe!

Now then, who is in SLC & is willing to do some occasional research for us in Germanic or other European records & posting them to m/y/our dropbox.com or email or whatever is necessary. We can pay you with a check, but would prefer the ease of PayPal.com.

So, set up your account there–if you’ve not already done so. State your rates, but make sure that it is NO LESS THAN than $10/hr.{:>) You should NOT be working for less than that–haha–like WE sometimes do. Right, Michael W. McCormick?

I still do some pro bono work, but ’tis now WE who choose what, where, when & for whom.

Here is my 1994 10-year renewal, which was–after a 1995 traumatic brain injury–ultimately stripped from me about 1996. No matter. I’ve had more success after my near-death experience than before it{:>)

So much to do; so little time. Let us be about our ancestral families’ & forefathers’ business!

You snooze, you lose: All discounts for German Genealogy research by these German Genealogy research professionals are OFF!

For the keyword “german genealogist,” my webmaster has had my WordPress blog SEO’d, i.e. search-engine optimized, for several years now. Results: a few clients @ a few hundred $; a few @ $1,000; 1 @ $34,400 (over 2 years); another @ $20,000 (over 1 year). I wish I could say that acquiring such well-paying clientele is happening more than that. Nonetheless, I do not intend to ever shut it down, but may alter how it works & its focus. Those clients, of course, did not offer those retainers up front. They still had to be “sold.” German empire colorAs we were successful, they ordered more research in numerous villages of Germany, Poland & Lithuania (mostly Prussia & non-Prussia provinces). No, I did not want the keyword “German Genealogy.” for that would have brought on too many without the capital to spend for Germany Genealogy research.

So, long story short: We will now only accept retainers in increments of $1,000.  How many thousands can you budget? It is said by many that we SAVE our clients thousands of $, while obtaining what they seek in The Old World.

If you have a budget of at least $1,000, please call 480-245-0879. Think that is too much? Ha! The research arm of Ancestry.com wants $2,500 to start a European research project!
For us: If research is required on-site in Europe, then a minimum $10,000 retainer is required. Why? So that we might exhaust as much of the parish registers in various villages & parishes for as many ancestral families as possible!
