About Me

My Bio

With nearly 20 years experience as a consultant at the Sacramento California Family History Center, Susan has solved literally thousands of genealogical puzzles. For six years Susan trained the staff at the Sacramento Family History Center and taught family history classes through Adult Education. 


Over the past 20 years susan has lectured extensively in the greater Sacramento area on a variety of family history subjects.  Susan graduated from Brigham Young University with a Family History Emphasis. She is a member of the Association of Professional Genealogists. During its existence--from early in 2009 to March 2011--she was one of the experts with the Ancestry.com Expert Connect service and completed over 60 projects with a 5 star rating. 


As of 2017, Susan is currently teaching online University Genealogy Courses through Brigham Young Univeristy-Idaho. The university offers the only fully online 2 year degree in Genealogy. Since 2009 she has had a steady flow of rotating genealogy clients. She loves helping them break through brick walls.

My Micro-Project Method

Here is my philosophy: give me 4 hours and see for yourself what I can discover about your family. If you like what I am able to uncover we can keep going. My goal with each client is to give them something new and encouraging about their ancestry that will keep them coming back for more.


Why SusanJackman.com?

Many genealogical firms charge close to $100 per hour and only accept large projects of 10 hours or more. Clients are locked in with no control over the project. They are often disappointed with the report, hoping the project would have gone in a different direction. My small projects are flexible and affordable for clients. There are no surprises! My fees are half the price because I have no overhead and no employees.


Area of Expertise

I specialize in finding original records online. This covers everything! My years at the Sacramento Family History Center--together with over 25 years of servicing clients--has given me experience with original  records in many countries. With so much information now online, I have access to an incredible number of records. I also have access to all the records at the Family History Library in Salt Lake City--the largest genealogical library in the world-- as well as access to many colleagues who research in foreign countries.

What I Need from You

As a genealogist, I go from the known to the unknown. If you are searching for an unknown ancestor, or searching for more information about a known ancestor, I need full information for one of the children; name, place of birth, date of birth, and any other information you can give me to help me get oriented in the records. That is it. Is this FUN, or WHAT?.

Testimonials

Thanks Susan, this really works. You figured out in a couple of days what I have been looking for forever. Can’t wait until the next project. Thanks again, Doug Sekula

Ancestry Expert Connect

The Expert Connect program at Ancestry.com ran from 2008 to 2011. 

Published at Archives.com

Susan has written several articles for Archives.com, a web site devoted to digitized records and images. The site was purchased by Ancestry.com in August 2012. 

Susan has really helped to begin solving the puzzle of my family tree. I will continue the project with her as I like her approach, her data and her expertise in sorting the data.

What to Expect

What you see is what you get!

Your project does not get assigned to an unknown entity. I personally do all the research. 

My System

I rotate clients. I put my new clients up front. This means I can have your first report to you within less than a week. Any repeat projects will put you back into the rotation, allowing you to only pay on a once a month basis. This is good for me. It keeps me in clients. This is good for you. It makes me affordable because you pay as you go. One hour, 4 hours, 10 hours---it is all up to you.

My Reports

Every 4 hour project comes with a detailed report filled with screen shots and original documents--including recommendations for furher research.
