John Kemmer FamilyWe realize that genealogy is more than just names with birth and death dates attached.  These were people with jobs, and families, and, well… lives!  Understanding the historical context of the times they lived will help you make more sense of the world they inhabited.

We offer a full range of services:

•  Researching ancestral lines
•  Building multiple-name family trees
•  Simple record lookups and archival work (London area only)
•  Family home or gravestone photographs (London area only)
•  Attacking research problems (maiden names, common names, re-marriages, etc.)
•  Video interviews/oral histories with living family members (UK only)
•  Document transcription
•  Document translation (from German into English)
•  Writing and editing family histories for preservation and sharing

All research is documented with source citations.
