Find the Origin of your Family!
Discover with me the original landscape and emigration place where your forefathers were born! Archive access on request. As a trained historian I also do some genealogical research work. I will tailor regional tours for you to all places you need to visit, never mind how small they are, to find your family heritage. No extra fees if we may use your own car.
I cannot describe how touching it is to see the tears in the eyes of a great great great grandchild standing in front of the emigrated ancestor's birth house: "From there grow my roots!"
And yes, you ARE allowed to TOUCH that archive book from 1615 to witness the page where Aunt Elisabeth's marriage with Theodor is testified. . .

Silvia was a tremendous tour guide and helped me secure a meeting with the Mayor of Schmolln, the home of my ancestors since 1440. I presented the Mayor with a Certificate from the Mayor of Dearborn, MI. In fact, Basilius Bankwitz was the Mayor of Schmolln in the 1500's. Our 10:00 am meeting was much more than I ever thought possible. This tour was terrific. A local genealogist had 6 inches of materials about my family at our meeting. I walked in the streets of my ancestors!!! Keith Bankwitz
