Sara Martin – Family Historian

Smart Canyon Genealogy

Hi, I’m Sara Martin and I am currently doing genealogy research while living in the beautiful Colorado mountains. I know that finding your family can be challenging. Sometimes it seems like a long hike up a canyon wall or a difficult climb to summit a fourteener. Sometimes you can feel lost in a forest of family trees. I can help you as you hike along that trail.

As a professional genealogist, I can assist you in your search for your ancestors and their families. I can help find the records that reveal their lives, their struggles, and their accomplishments. I can prepare a family tree, family group sheets, and detailed findings about events or relationships pertinent to your ancestry. Everyone has a story.

I am a member of the National Genealogical Society, the Colorado Genealogical Society, the Illinois State Genealogical Society, and am Corresponding Secretary/Social Media Coordinator for the Champaign County (Illinois) Genealogical Society. I have been researching ancestors for over 40 years and have attended the Institute of Genealogy and Historical Research (IGHR) and completed courses with the National Genealogical Society. I employ the Genealogical Proof Standard in my work. I specialize in United States research.

I offer a free consultation to see if we can work together to fill in the puzzles in your family tree and help you dig deeper to find your roots. Please contact me via email at smartcanyongen@yahoo.com or by phone at 303-587-6290.
