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 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!

German genealogists acknowledge other useful services like

 Vickie Ortiz  Hello,  My name is Vickie Ortiz. I am the founder of

We are a free site that helps to obtain an identification for unknown lost photos in the hopes of reuniting them with their families, and putting a name to a face. We also work with photos lost in a natural disaster such as a tornado. We feel these photos are precious and deserve to be treated as such. We would like to know if you would consider featuring our site on your Facebook page, we would certainly reciprocate. We feel that the more exposure the photos get the higher the chance they will be identified.

Thank you for the consideration.

Vickie Ortiz, Founder

Exciting that Evangelical Lutheran Germany parish registers will slowly be coming online–ENDLICH{:>)

Evangelical [Lutheran] church records coming online soon!

The new Evangelical church book portal Archion is currently in closed-access Beta-testing mode. Approximately 135,000 Evangelical church books will eventually be accessible through this subscription website. The portal will begin its service with circa 32,000 books. User fees are supposed to finance the additional materials coming online.
Currently fees are set at 178 Euros (roughly 250 US Dollars) per year for general users who will be allowed to download up to 50 scans per month, and 1788 Euros per year for professionals, with a download capacity of up to 500 images per month. As I understand it, the download restrictions refer to the number of images the user is able to print, not view.
Archion will eventually allow access to records from eleven church archives and is scheduled to go live in early 2015 as a subscription site. For a sneak preview (in German) with screen shots see

The following churches are participating at this time:
• Evangelische Landeskirche Anhalts
• Evangelische Landeskirche in Baden
• Evangelisch-Lutherische Kirche in Bayern
• Evangelische Kirche Berlin-Brandenburg-schlesische Oberlausitz
• Evangelisch-lutherische Landeskirche Hannovers
• Evangelische Kirche in Hessen und Nassau
• Evangelische Kirche von Kurhessen-Waldeck
• Evangelisch-Lutherische Kirche in Norddeutschland
• Evangelische Kirche der Pfalz
• Evangelische Kirche von Westfalen
• Evangelische Landeskirche in Württemberg

More information about this project is available in the blog found at , unfortunately only in German. Only the last three entries are shown on the home page. To access the next earlier blog entry scroll down past all the comments of the earliest available entry.

Archion – Einblick in die Testphase
Vor gut 14 Tagen wurde das Kirchenbuchportal Archion auf dem 66. Deutschen Genealogentag vorgestellt und später mit dem Schlag auf den roten Buzzer offiziell eröffnet. Nachdem innerhalb der ersten 14 Tage, täglich 10 neue Beta-Tester zugelassen werden, folgen daraufhin in größeren Schritten alle weiteren Beta-Benutzer. Ich hatte das Glück unter den ersten 140 zu sein und möchte euch meine Eindrücke nicht vorenthalten.

German Genealogy case cracked, but not accepted by the client? Schade!

2013 PhoenixAward for GenealogistWe cracked another case today, but the client/patron along with another fellow professional, less-seasoned researcher do not want to accept it. Schade (too bad, or what a shame). The entire post got deleted. Sometimes patrons do that due to misplaced annoyance, disgust or shame. They shall apparently now bark up the wrong tree & in the wrong location. Subject: a small village in Germany. Little do they know, that ______… But due to our multi-decade experience, supported by proper best research practices, thus, we see that they will make amateur & hobbyist research errors. They failed to follow the fundamentals & took things at face value–a huge mistake. This errant research methodology is often done with enthusiastic zeal. This will add to their disappointment when they don’t find him in their chosen–albeit, wrong–location. The client did not want to pay $1,000 (nor anything lesser I offered) for me to coach & mentor her as to how to obtain the answer. I offered to teach her how to fish. But, like many, they proudly figure they already know how to fish{:>) <sigh>When you are ready for able research, send your retainer to the acct (yes, it looks like an email address)
