Genealogy has become a fascinating endeavour for many people. This has opened a unique niche in the research world with an overwhelming demand for genealogists in traditional genealogy as well as specialized genealogical areas. What sets us apart? Passion, experience, education, and specialization in repatriation. Our objective is to help our clients complete their piece of the puzzle of humanity. We find great fulfillment in identifying those lost souls who have already been identified but not yet reunited with their families.
