Genealogical Researchers

Advancement Prospects

Other than growing their businesses, there are no clear advancement paths for self-employed genealogical researchers. A researcher who works for a company or law enforcement agency can advance by receiving higher pay and/or managerial responsibilities or by moving from a smaller employer to a larger one. Some genealogical researchers become educators, and teach classes on general genealogy, probate research, or genetic genealogy. Some became well-known in the media by writing books, giving interviews about the field, or even participating in television shows or documentaries about genealogical research.
