You would like to learn more about your ancestors than what you know, for example through family stories. You have references to noble ancestors. You are interested in where your an-cestors came from, how they lived, what profession(s) they practised.

References to your ancestors can be found in church records or civil status registers, for example. These include entries of baptisms, marriages and deaths.

The company will conduct research for you in Catholic and Protestant church archives, and in libraries with public authorities, to find information about your ancestors.

Would you like to know more about the origin of your family name? On the basis of the available information, we research the meaning and place of origin of your surname.

If you yourself are already conducting genealogical research for your family and have reached a "dead point", we will of course offer you assistance. We will be happy to continue the research for you on the basis of the available data, carry out the necessary archive research and obtain the necessary documents.

You have data and facts about your ancestors and would like to have them presented in a graphically appealing way? We can create a family tree for you with the help of a genealogical computer programme.

We would be happy to make you an offer, or support you in completing the family research you have begun.
