- Does your research need a jump start?
- Are you just beginning and don’t know where to start?
- Do you need help reading and analyzing an old document?
- Have you hit that proverbial brick wall?
Having someone with experience and expertise analyze your work might provide you with a new perspective to help you continue your research. The Ancestors Road Show is the place for giving or getting help. Conference attendees have the opportunity to have a free 20-minute consultation with a professional genealogist.
Virtual appointments are available on Tuesday, April 27; Friday, May 7; and Wednesday, May 26, on a first-come, first-served basis and are limited to one per registered conference attendee.
For our 2021 conference, we offer eighteen experts who are ready to hear about your brick walls and research problems, in areas ranging from DNA to Wabinaki Native Americans. They can provide advice and recommendations to help you break down those walls and move forward with your research. DNA experts include one experienced with Native American DNA research. For U.S. states, there are experts on researching ancestors from New York, New Jersey, Rhode Island, Northeastern Ohio, Northwestern Pennsylvania, colonial Massachusetts, and Maine. Expertise in New York City is also available. We have experts waiting to assist you with Irish, Danish, Swedish, Norwegian, Italian, Polish,
Portuguese, Eastern European, and French-Canadian research. We also have an expert on 19th-21st century
immigration. Religious groups are represented by experts on Roman Catholic records and Jewish records, including
Holocaust records. Are you simply unsure of how to progress in your research? There are experts in beginning genealogy, social history, organizing your research, writing, records access, and certification.
