We are members in good standing of the Association of Professional Genealogists


Overseas genealogical searches are our specialty

We specialize in locating beneficiaries and families in the following places:

Eastern Europe

  • Russia
  • Ukraine
  • Belarus
  • Latvia
  • Lithuania
  • Poland
  • Former Yugoslavia
  • Czech and Slovak Republics

Western Europe

  • Germany
  • Austria
  • France
  • United Kingdom
  • Scandinavian countries

Why don't other companies perform overseas research themselves?
Because their staff, although trained to conduct searches in Canada or the USA, is not familiar with the realities, the genealogical resources and, quite simply, the mentality of European countries. They do not speak the European languages needed to comfortably communicate with locals. Other companies subcontract local amateur genealogists who are often expensive and are not familiar with due diligence requirements in North America.

Our experience in genealogical research enables us to easily search in these countries without ever leaving our office. Our clients are provided with professional genealogical search services when they need to locate families overseas.
