Why, When, Where, How, and Who:

Hiring a Professional to Help with your Research

1:30 PM General Meeting & Members Only Prize Drawing

2:00 PM to 3:00 PM Program Followed by Q & A   

Eastern Time via Zoom

 

   Sometimes we just can't do it ourselves -- we need help to break through brick walls, find elusive records, or determine our next research steps. Professional genealogists can help with all that and more: helping organize your genealogy, writing or editing your family stories, or interpreting your DNA results. Learn why, when, and where you might need a professional, how to find one, and how to determine if that person is the right pro for you.

   Speaker Annette Burke Lyttle owns Heritage Detective, LLC, providing professional genealogical services in research, education, and writing. She speaks on a variety of genealogical topics at the national, state, and local levels and loves helping people uncover and share their family stories. She is coordinator of the Fall Virtual Intermediate Foundations course for the Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy. Annette leads the Best Practices Study Groups for a number of organizations, providing in-depth education on the genealogical research process in an interactive setting. She is president of the Association of Professional Genealogists and editor of The Florida Genealogist.
