Conducting genealogy work can be challenging. Have you…
- ever been stuck in your genealogical search?
- wished there was someone to talk you through your genealogy difficulties?
- wanted to personally coach others through their genealogy challenges?
If you have ever wished for one of the above, you could benefit from contacting or becoming a GenerousGenealogists Brickwall Detective (BWD).
Brickwall Detectives are volunteers who donate freely of their time and energies to aid those who need help in getting their genealogy searches ‘unstuck’. Sadly, they are not miracle workers; they are simply generous hard-working genealogists (professional and non-professional) with a strong desire to be helpful and to make the resources of GenerousGenealogists and other online communities work more effectively for you. Most importantly, they are available to lend a sympathetic ear and help/guide you when you get stuck. Quite simply a GenerousGenealogists’ Brickwall Detective can be a personal guide, coach, sounding board and/or mentor.
Before you are able to join the ranks of GenerousGenealogists’ Brickwall Detectives, you must first be a GenerousGenealogists User & Volunteer:
Once you have completed those steps, we ask that you visit our application page and fill out a Brickwall Detective application. We guarantee that there is no cost… and the questions are not very hard. We simply want to approve folks for this roll before announcing them to the world.
Upon approval, you will be notified of your acceptance and you may claim both your official designation along with the cool logo for use on your website, email, business cards etc.
Should you need a Brickwall Detective, sadly the wait might be a while because our list of Detectives is brand-new and still ‘rather short’.
