The final report consists of  copies of documents, translations, maps and a summary. I describe the whole process, explain the connection between certain people, mention the sources and the historical context. I also present further possibilities.

The reports may differ more or less depending on the place where the family came from (e.g. documents from the Prussian, Austrian and Russian partitions differ in form, language and content).

Based on the gathered information (yours and mine), I will prepare a plan and a quote – if you accept it, I will ask you to send me the down payment and I start the research. Usually it takes about 1 month and if takes longer, I keep you updated.

I will reply to your inquiry within 3 working days and this part is free of charge. Perhaps I will ask you a few additional questions or will present a research plan.

The more details you provide, the more things I can discover so I please share everything you know, especially:

  • Names and surnames of your ancestors
  • Places of birth and residence
  • Dates of birth, marriage and death
  • Information about siblings, cousins and other relatives
  • Emigration details
  • Family stories

And most importantly – if you have little information, don’t worry. I will find a solution in such situations as well.
