What is genealogy?

Genealogy is the study of families and the tracing of their lineages and history. It also examines the social structures.

Information sources for investigations can be the church books, census lists, official certificates, municipal registers, estate inventories, muster rolls, military master cards, war diaries, emigration documents, historical maps, historical newspaper library etc.

It is very valuable to research and save your family history for yourself or for your posterity. It is also a great gift idea.

What possibilities do we offer?

Genealogical research can be defined and presented in many ways. A popular research is the paternal line (or any other family line) research as far back in time as possible. With church books we can typically reach early 1700s or late 1600s. In some cases, census lists and land title registers allow us to research the family history even further, even to 1500s.

It is also possible to go forward in time and research the descendants of a certain person/couple.

Additionally, we can find living relatives and trace missing persons, or order official certificates for a declaration of estate.

We can research when and how the family name came into being. Has it perhaps formed from the place of residence, or could it be a military or a craftsman name?
