Today’s episode of Research Like a Pro is about portfolio element four: the research report prepared for another person. To apply to the Board for Certification of Genealogists you must submit a research report that meets standards. You cannot submit a report that focuses on your own ancestors. Listen in as we discuss the requirements, best practices for reports, and the rubrics for grading this portfolio element.

Hi Nicole & Diane,
Very good information and tips, as usual! This episode leads me to a request: might you be able to share with us tips on actually having a genealogy business? You frequently refer to your clients: how do you get them? how do you know what to charge? how do you squeeze them in to your already busy lives? 🙂 Tips from “behind the scenes” would be much appreciated.
All the best,
Anne of Annecestree
That’s a great subject for a podcast and questions that we certainly had when we began our journey into professional genealogy.
Thanks for the comment!
