Today’s episode of Research Like a Pro is about what to do if you have a brick wall genealogy problem that you can’t break down, or if you have a document in another language you need translated. These and other scenarios are perfect times to hire a professional genealogist to assist you with your research. We discuss how to find a genealogist that will fit your research needs, credentials, and tips for working with a professional.
