We have years of experience in the probate genealogy, forensic genealogy and estate-related matters. Our area of specialisation is Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, Poland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Moldova and other countries of the former Soviet Bloc, former USSR and former Russian Empire.
We successfully traced heirs in all those jurisdictions. We obtain required archival documentation for cases, including documents from 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.
We accept complicated cases where the part of the family originally from Russia went to New York, another to South Africa, and yet another sent to Siberia. We know how to find them.
Our team members speak and read English, German, Russian, Ukrainian, Belarus, Polish, Latvian, Lithuanian, Hungarian, Czech languages.
We know how to work with court cases from UK Bona Vacancia, US Surrogate courts, German Familiengericht, and 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 offer quick turnaround service if needed.
