Genealogical Research Service Provides Personal Coaching

Published on 10/27/2017
Avotanyu’s editor Gary Mokotoff announced a new service where genealogists can get one-on-one advice from a professional. He writes:

You buy 15-minute increments of the person’s time. The service has launched with 25 coaches across 47 different categories. Topics include: getting started; genetic genealogy/DNA; tree analysis and writing a research plan; and document translation. Coaches also specialize in researching different regions of the world and different ethnic groups. For example, Lara Diamond is their specialist on Jewish research. Her rate is $17.50 per 15-minute consultation.

Shortly before the coaching session, an email link is sent that allows the user to log in to a private video chat room. There they meet face to face, via video chat, to share screens and documents with the genealogy coach, and receive the help they need to keep them moving along in their family history journey.

The service is located at
