Search for a birth, marriage or death record

It is advisable to add the names of the parents, if they are known, and other information that will help more accurately identify the desired record.

We estimate how many registry books we have to look at for this area and for this time period. We agree on this volume, price and timing.

About Us

WE ARE HERE

In the times of Adam and Eva everything was clear and simple and nobody needed genealogy. Since then lots of things got so complicated that even prominent genealogists sometimes cannot sort out the history of a family. Working in the territory of the Baltic States we also try to contribute to this magnificent investigation of mankind. And who knows, may be we will be lucky to have a closer look at the distant past because our ancestors are alive as long as we remember them.

Andrei Repin

My interest in genealogy started from curiosity about the history of my family. Finding documents of my ancestors in archives, sorting out old photos and collecting family legends I moved up from generation to generation. Many years have passed since then. Investigating the tree of life I came to better understanding of myself, found my place in this world and realised that my higher purpose is to help people with tracing their genealogy.

Skills – search, documentation of a genealogic tree and family registers, recovery of photos

Aleksandra Lavrenko

I like helping people find information about their ancestors. If I can make somebody happy this way, let it be my contribution to the development of genealogic search in the Baltic States.

Skills – search coordination, correspondence
