Assistance finding one person
Is there a way to get help from Family Search to assist in finding a specific person? There a couple people not too far up in my family, 3-4 generations back that I have been stuck on for years now. Do you have to hire someone? If so any recommendations? Thank you!!
Finding that one elusive person can be frustrating. I suggest going to the help function, the circle with a question mark in it at the top of the site and type in Where can I get help with my genealogy. Notice there is a free 20 minute consultation with an expert at the Family History Library. Click on the blue link and set up an appointment. There are other great suggestions that may help you find these ancestors.0
You could post the specific details here, in a hope an experienced researcher could look at alternative ways - that perhaps you have not yet considered - of finding these individuals. Otherwise, you might have to employ a professional genealogist, with no guarantee they would find anything positive, either.0
I could maybe help if you give more details such as the Family Tree ID, names, and places. It's helpful to have another set of eyes on things.
MYFY-W9V - Katherine Safarik and husband Mathia Safarik MYFY-W9S
I can tell she went by Katie and headstone is in Nebraska, married to a Mathia Safarik
Both listed as being born in Bohemia Austria and died in Richardson Nebraska but I can’t find any information on parents. I think I found her on a ship passenger list which I linked to her but parents are impossible.
He was born about 1829 died February 25, 1905 Richardson, Nebraska.
She was born about 1834 and died December 1905 Richardson, Nebraska.
For both I have tried variations of spelling, widened birth years. Trying to make some link to parents. Any help is very very appreciated. Looking for any links to parents. I appreciate any help or pointers you can give. Thank you!!0
