If you are interested in a career in genealogy, you should study
history, English literature and composition, geography, sociology,
and psychology while in high school. Foreign languages and research
and library skills are also valuable. Develop your computer
knowledge, since libraries and document archives now have
computerized catalogs and research systems. Because you may do
genealogical work only on a part-time basis, you may wish to look
into part-time work in related jobs, such as librarian, historian,
archivist, and freelance writer, which will offer the free time to
conduct genealogical research.
