About Sarah Gutmann:
“Genealogy is not a common hobby for a 13 year old, especially in 1996. My friends did not know I spent countless hours scrolling through microfilm and contacting churches looking for records. What fascinated me was not just dates and locations, but piecing together the stories of family members forgotten by time.

Once the Internet came along, brick walls came crashing down. For over two decades, I have enjoyed not only building my family tree, but also helping friends, family, and students discover their own past. With so many records available, my goal is to make sure each person is climbing THEIR family tree.

In 2017, my passion led me to begin my certification as a professional genealogist through ICAP. In 2018, I became a consultant for the genealogist company Trace.com.”
