Self-employed genealogists advance their careers through their dedication to quality work, cleverness, and efforts to find new clients. Certification can help; professional societies publish lists of accredited members and distribute them to the public upon request. Genealogists can also diversify their skills, either by gaining more accreditation or by expanding services into related work, such as writing family histories and designing family crests and coats of arms. Other ways of expanding services might include conducting seminars or writing articles and how-to books to help amateurs.
