Consult the Experts

If you are struggling with a “brick wall” in your family research, an individual consultation may be the solution. Consultations are only $30 for 30 minutes and all consultations will take place during our 2017 Spring Conference. We are continuing to work with our speakers to identify consultation periods. If you don't see a speaker's name below, please continue to check back as we confirm additional consultations.
If you are interested in signing up for a consultation with a speaker, go here to register online through Eventbrite. We must receive your payment by March 21, 2017 in order to schedule your consultation. No refunds will be available after that date.
We ask that you provide information on your research issue prior to the conference so that the consultant will have a chance to consider the issues involved. Click here to download the Consultation Information form. Submit your consultation information form to Sarah Williams, Consultations Coordinator, through email.
Schedules will be made on a first come-first serve basis, based on receipt of your payment. You may request a specific time slot for your appointment. Due to demand and to ensure you meet with your preferred consultant, we may have to give you a different time.
Your confirmation, consultant, and an appointment time will be emailed to you.
