TGP 34 – Ursula Krause of Rootseekers
Raised in the tradition of story telling, a custom which has been cultivated in her family for centuries, Ursula Krause began to become interested in the history of her ancestors as a child.
Influenced by the emigration of her great-great-great-grandfather and her own long stays in the USA and Sweden, she has intensely studied and investigated the subject of emigration. As a result, she put the story of her family to paper, as seen from a socio-historical and psychological perspective.
Little by little she began to research and document the stories of other emigrant families. They are stories that give descendants and family members a picture of the country where their roots lie.
Ursula is based in Berlin, Germany and is the owner of Rootseekers, a business that recreates ancestral stories for people of German descent.

One Action Genealogists Can Take Right Now
“You will know when the time is right to start your business. It will come to you.“
German-English Genealogical Dictionary by Ernest Thode
“Focus on tracking statistics of where your customers come from.”
It’s the New Year! We need to stop and take a moment think about our goals for 2015 and come up with a plan to achieve them.
This week’s action item is simple. Write down your goals for 2015. Don’t leave them in your head! Write them down and post them on the wall near your computer or where ever you spend most of your time. Look at your goals each day, figure out how you are going to achieve them, and work toward them a little bit every day.
