My name is Marta and I have been working as a genealogy researcher for about 10 years. I gained my experience by researching the history of my own family, working in the Genealogy Department of the Jewish Historical Institute in Warsaw and in a private company, where I got specialized in researching all the faiths of pre-war Poland's inhabitants. Eventually, I started my own business and hereby I offer my services to you.
I focus mostly on the territories that belonged to Poland before the World War II (including parts of today's Ukraine, Belarus and Lithuania), but I am also eager to help with tracing the German ancestry of families that lived in the area which became Polish after 1945. Since I was born in Dolny Śląsk (also known as Lower Silesia/ Niederschlesien), I found it important to honor its' previous residents.
I can help you with:
- searching for your ancestors based on vital records (birth, marriage and death certificates) available online and in the archives on-site as well as other as well as other kind of helpful documents (address books, lists of residents, prewar magazines, war records etc.)
- understanding the documents you already have
- preparing the translations (I speak Polish and English, I can also read old German, Russian, Latin and Hebrew)
- looking for your living relatives
I will be happy to help you to discover your roots in Poland!
