We are experienced in the probate genealogy and estate-related matters. We specialize in Russia, Ukraine, Poland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Belarus, Moldova and other countries of the former Soviet Block, former USSR and former Russian Empire.
We successfully traced heirs in all those jurisdictions. We have no problems obtaining required archival documentation for cases, including documents from out-of-way and hard to find archives and repositories (like local pension office, village councils and district archives in regions of Belarus, Ukraine, and Russia). We know how to find those documents, what international requirements could be, and how to satisfy them.
Our team speaks English, German, Russian, Ukrainian, Belarus, Polish, Latvian, Lithuanian languages.
We do not refuse cases where the part of the family originally from Lithuania went to New York, another to South Africa, and yet another sent to Siberia. We know how to find them.
We know how to work with court cases from US Surrogate courts, UK Bona Vacancia, German Familiengericht, European Union rules on cross-border successions.
We work with notaries handling inheritance cases in Germany and France. You do not need to explain basic intestate rules of your jurisdiction to us — chances are we already know them.
Our rates are competitive, and being the compact team we are able to offer the most personalized service available. We can work quickly if needed. You might also use our service for certified translations of genealogical documents, GenealogyTranslations.com.
