Tamara Hallo, MLS

Educator, Librarian and Genealogist with professional experience in lecturing, researching, document retrieval and evidence analysis. 


I embarked on my journey to become a professional genealogist more than 10 years ago after finding a binder full of family history that was left to my mom by her great aunt.  I was immediately hooked and picked up where she left off.  I have researched my roots in Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, Texas, Arkansas, Arizona, Pennsylvania and Sweden in a variety of repositories including the Georgia and Tennessee Archives, courthouses and the online Swedish Archives.  

With over 20 years of experience as an educator and a Master of Library Science degree, genealogy is a perfect complement to my repertoire.  I hold a certificate of genealogical research from Boston University and have completed ProGen, an 18 month professional genealogy study program. 

I am currently the webinar coordinator for the Georgia Genealogical Society and was just awarded the Taylor Cannon Award for 2017 for my contribution to the society and genealogy.  I also teach genealogy classes at the Miami-Dade Public Library and Miami Dade College to groups of beginner and experienced genealogists. 

A member of the Association of Professional Genealogists (APG), the Genealogical Speakers Guild (GSG), and the National Genealogical Society (NGS), I specialize in Southern United States and Miami, Florida research.  I also lecture, teach and conduct workshops and webinars.

Let my passion for research and preserving the past help you bring your family history to life!
