That summer, over 40 years, his interest in the subject of genealogy also began. He specializes in German-American research but also work in all types of U.S. record sources and databases. Bob has also worked on two research projects with the TV series “Who Do You Think You Are?” Season 9 (2017), episode 5.

– The Ethical Genealogist:
 
Genealogists deal with sensitive issues all the time: how to handle family secrets, what to say about living people, crediting the work of others. Learn more about the ethical challenges of trying to solve family history mysteries in the 21st century. The mission for The Legal Genealogist “in part, is to help folks understand the often arcane and even impenetrable legal concepts and terminology that are so very important to those of us studying family history. Without understanding the context in which events took place and records were created, we miss so much of both the significance and the flavor of what happened.”

- The 1950 US Federal Census - Are You Ready?
 
Many genealogists remember the amount of excitement in April 2012 around the release of the 1940 US Census. Folowing the "72 Year Rule" for records at the National Archives, the results of the 1950 US Census will be made public on Friday, April 1, 2022.  It's never too early to prepare for this valuable data related to US genealogy research!
 
Participants will get up to speed on the history of the 1950 US Census, why the 1950 US Census form is radically different than previous forms, and how the data will be accessed.  In addition we'll cover what you can do NOW to prepare for the release of the 1950 US census as well as volunteer projects related to indexing and finding aids. Finally, we'll cover how you can always get the latest information related to the release of the 1950 US Census data!
