 Qualifications for research positions:

Several years of advanced genealogy experience (and appropriate language skills for foreign records, or an ability to learn) are preferred.

But with all Roots in the Boot research positions, careful attention to detail, a passion for meaningful family story-gathering/telling, and a commitment to excellence take precedence over all other traits/skills.

Candidates with those qualities are strongly encouraged to apply, even if they don’t yet meet all the position requirements. We are willing to train (to a reasonable degree) any candidates who are committed to learning and providing the level of quality service that Roots in the Boot is known for.
