Need a Professional Genealogist? Houston, We Don't Have a Problem
Yesterday, Ancestry.com announced that they are terminating their Expert Connect program, which was a way to connect clients and researchers. Projects ranged from basic record look-up to custom research, and Ancestry took a slice of the pie.
A quick glance at the comments on Ancestry.com's own Facebook page indicated that some folks weren't too happy with the abrupt halt of services, as there's now a void when it comes to identifying location-specific researchers.
If you are in need of professional research assistance or record retrieval in the Houston area, I am happy to help. My territory includes:
The Clayton Library Center for Genealogical Research
Houston Public Library
Houston Metropolitan Research Center
Rosenberg Library (Galveston)
Harris County Courthouse
Woodson Research Center at Rice University
Montgomery County Public Library Central Branch (Conroe)
Montgomery County Courts
Liberty County Courthouse
Sam Houston Regional Library and Research Center
I am willing to travel to other counties in Texas as needed.
I'm also available for custom research and other genealogy needs including family history writing projects. Please contact me for pricing and questions.
Should you need research services in other portions of Texas, please let me know as I have established a network of wonderful professionals ready to serve you. If you need assistance in other parts of the country and world, consult the Association of Professional Genealogists directory.
Do not feel discouraged or worried about the demise of Expert Connect at Ancestry.com. There are so many researchers out there willing to assist with your family history.
Also remember that you have a friend in Texas who is more than happy to help.
