When the show Who Do You Think You Are? first premiered, I always thought how I would love to be a professional genealogist, I never really thought it was possible.
I LOVE researching family history and it doesn’t even need to be my own family. I fall in love with each and every person I come across, though to be honest certain family members I hold closer to others. These people call me and I truly feel it is them guiding me some days.
In 2017, I took the Boston University Genealogy Certificate Program and it was a dream to be in a class with like minded people and a network of professionals. As 2018, blossomed I decided to take on some pro-bono clients and probably took more than I should of at one time but I am now in the midst of report writing and honing my citation skills even more. I also stumbled upon an online listing to become an independent contractor for Ancestry. Yes that Ancestry. I never in a million years thought I would be accepted but guess what.. I was. It makes it seem absolutely possible this dream of being a professional genealogist.
