At your request we can perform an archive search for a single document, namely: act of civil status (birth, marriage, divorce, death, name change), census record or confessional statement for a particular surname, etc. Perhaps it is this finding that will be an important puzzle in the history of your family.
Service that allows you to establish and documentary proof of your ancestor's nationality. Documents of this kind can shed light on little-known pages of the family history, as well as help in obtaining foreign citizenship, if that is your goal.
Often, to begin a more global study of your family tree you may not have, for example, the marriage certificate of your grandmother or a death certificate of an ancestor, as the civil registration office and several other structures require you to provide a complete chain of kinship. We will be happy to help you get the missing link, after which you can successfully delve into family history analysis.
Our company is also engaged in the search for a variety of personal files, which often contain a large amount of biographical information. In particular, it is about the personal files of Soviet officers, university students, criminal cases of people repressed in the Soviet period, etc.

You will receive a full report with a detailed description of the research progress, extracts and photocopies of documents.
We can offer to present your family tree in the form of a beautiful poster or picture, which can be placed on the wall at your home. If your genealogy is deeply researched and you have many family histories, documents, photos, we can help you prepare and print a unique genealogy book in leather or wooden bindings.

In some cases, archival search provides for the availability of additional documents for the right to obtain one or another certificate / certificate / personal file.
One of the most important documents of this type is, of course, a power of attorney. If you want to entrust us with obtaining, for example, your grandmother’s death certificate, you need to contact a notary to draw up a power of attorney and related documents. The power of attorney is always accompanied by documents confirming your family ties with the person whose certificate you are looking for, or notarized copies of these documents.
Below we offer for review a typical template of a power of attorney, which is suitable for archival search and genealogy.
