The most common reason people hire professional genealogists to do research for them is they themselves aren't able to travel to the source of documents. If you yourself cannot physically travel to a courthouse and you haven't had any luck with contacting the local genealogy society you would hire a genealogist to go to that courthouse and research all the records looking for information on your family. Sometimes you hire a professional when you have hit a brick wall and you cannot go any further because sometimes it's the shear knowledge and experience that a person has that will send them to something that you yourself would not think about. And there are people who just don't have the time to do it all themselves, but they love it and they let someone else to do the hard work.
