All stages
of probate research: tracing possible heirs, making a contract with them; obtaining official documents. I can help you with all these stages!

Facts and hints
which I focus on during research:
names, Eastern Europe is a multilingual and multicultural region, so it is important to consider all possible forms of a personal name, patronymic and surname;
dates, they helping identify a person and giving time frames for facts and events;
religion and social group, because each community had its own history which provides clues for the research;
places of residence give us location frames and able to prove relationships between residents;
occupation and place of work, despite possible biases, could outline persons portrait, their motives and reasons;
accuracy of facts and possible ambiguities, to highlight weak points of the evidence base.
Broad network of contacts
for the last 14 years, I have researched documents in almost all main archives in Eastern Europe.
