When is a professional genealogist right for you and your family?

Do you lack the time necessary to build a family tree? Or have you encountered a stumbling block in your own research? A professional genealogist like Nancy Loe can help.

She lectures at genealogical conferences and webinars in the US, Canada, and Australia. Nancy’s blog and newsletter reach 5,000 people in the genealogy community.
