What to look for in a professional genealogist?

When you’ve already done your own research but still end up limited and unsure of the pieces of evidence you’ve gathered, hiring genealogy experts is the next best step for you. What credentials do you need to look for if you’re considering hiring a professional genealogy service provider?

Generally, most genealogy research cases are confidential and private. But there are other ways to know if a genealogy service provider has built a reputable name such as through public reviews and referrals. Openly talk with the services provider about their practice to get a glimpse of their process. Ask if they have genealogy research reports that they can show to clients.

Genealogy also deals with the legal profession. Hiring an expert team who can expertly handle legislative and regulatory compliance, especially in matters dealing with the probate court and data privacy laws.

In most cases, professionals charge by the hour, not including other expenses such as travel, paperwork, postage and other admin-related tasks. Be open about why you need to hire a professional and ask what you can expect from them. Request a quote and negotiate the fee if you can.
