When do you need a professional genealogist?

The Cricket and Seagull Fireside Chat show

Summary: With over 40 years of research and accreditations to his name, James Petty is the perfect guide to the ins and outs of using professional family research services. The great uncle who supposedly died as a child, but turned out to have lived and had two families (unbeknownst to each other); the elusive grandfather who drifted from state to state leaving no trace of where he died and was buried; these are just two of the recent mysteries professional researcher James Petty has been called upon to solve. With a treasure-trove of stories and experience, the founder of Heirlines.com gives us an overview of his upcoming presentations at the BYU Conference for Family History & Genealogy (July 26-29, 2011) and gives candid advice about finding the right person with the right qualifications when you need some extra help finding important family information.  It's informative and entertaining. That's this week on The Cricket and Seagull.
