in Munich, Bavaria, I offer whatever might be
helpful to find your (or your client's) ancestors,
relatives, or missing heirs. Specifically, this
in church and civil records (birth, marriage,
to archives and administrations
in state and town archives (e.g. property,
tax, inheritance, emigration records)
for books and other publications
of handwritten documents
database mining (including my
own database of emigrants) and
I cannot offer research wherever. Mostly, things
are limited to South Germany - Bavaria, Baden, and
Württemberg. If feasible, I may also be able to
help beyond these regions, but in other cases I
would rather refer you to some colleague or other.
Most of my clients are Americans looking for their
emigrant ancestor. Some are Germans who want to
dig deep. But I have also done research for TV
documentaries (BBC's "Who Do You Think You Are"
and its US American, Swedish, and Israeli
offshoots), and sometimes I work for professional
heir searchers on both sides of the pond.
