One of the services we offer is genealogical research in Ukraine, that will be really useful for the people who are interested in learning their family history and finding their roots in Ukraine.
How do we commit a genealogical research?
First of all we work in regional and municipal archives that can be found in bigger cities in Ukraine. It often requires the knowledge of different languages – Ukrainian, Polish, Russian, German, Hebrew.
The main source of information for us are metric books which usually consist of 3 sections – birth records, death records and marriage records. Sometimes you may find the separate section where data was registered about people who converted from one confession/religion to another – for example, from Orthodox to Roman-Catholic.
The difficulties may occur in obtaining the necessary information in case if some data were lost during the wars or the regional archives didn’t hand over the records to provincial (oblast) archives. In this case the field genealogical research is required – we go to the smaller local archives, meet and interview people who could be the witnesses, search for family graves etc.
How much will it cost?
Prices for the genealogy research depend on the amount of work and availability of information. On average cost varies between 40 and 200 USD.
All the materials, photos, documents obtained during the family research, will be translated and transferred to you.
