I’m at a small roadblock in my journey so I have invited a professional genealogist to shed some light.
Janice M. Sellers is a professional genealogist who specializes in newspaper and Jewish research and has experience researching many other ethnic groups. She is the editor of The Galitzianer, the journal focused on Jewish research in the former Austrian province of Galicia, and of ZichronNote, the newsletter of the San Francisco Bay Area Jewish Genealogical Society. She is also the publicity director for SFBAJGS and a member of the Association of Professional Genealogists, Genealogical Speakers Guild, California Genealogical Society, California State Genealogical Alliance, and Gesher Galicia. She has been on the staff of the Oakland Regional Family History Center for eleven years. Before becoming a professional genealogist, Janice worked in publishing for many years as an editor, indexer, translator, and compositor.
Janice will be blogging about traditional research methods vs. DNA testing for ancestral research, how traditional should preceed DNA, and some tips for me on my personal journey.
Is there any topics you would like to hear about in the future?
Look for it soon!
