Several times a year we travel to Ukraine
and Poland on behalf of ongoing scientific projects, historical
exhibitions, film projects and at the request of genealogists worldwide.
Within the framework of our activities we have developed several very
successful research strategies that differ from the common approach. Our
on location archive contacts in combination with solid research know-how
have greatly helped to achieve significant results throughout many
projects so far. The archives offer, so-to-say, a wealth of scientific
“hunting-grounds” which remained hidden behind the former iron curtain
and now offers us a near endless resource of genealogical and historical
information. On behalf of your personal wishes we gladly offer our
services to fully exploit the possibilities of these resources.

behalf of your documentary film, your family name, interviewing
