Family Research

Gold Family Research Plan is the simpliest and most intuitive solution to discover your ancestry. This choice was created especially for those who like clear and transparent rules.

How it works?

Give us information about your ancestor and we will begin with an absolutely free analysis. This free analysis will allow us to tell you whether any documents that we could eventually search are available for your research (e.g. survived WWII). This is because we don’t want anybody to pay for a research that is not possible to be done.

If we find out that the research is possible, we will discuss the goal with you. You’ll always pay for number of hours we spend to research your ancestry. You can choose the number of hours or the goal you want to achieve (e.g. to get information about two or three generations or proove that the great-grandfather came from Lithuania and lived in Warsaw). If you choose the goal, we recommend the number of hours. You can always decide whether you accept it or not. Simple, isn’t it?

Research is divided and performed step by step. Thanks to that it is more flexible allowing us to react fast to each step results and take them into consideration while planning further steps, that may lead us to different places and archives.

After the research you will be informed briefly about the results and number of photos taken. There is a small fee for photos that you’ll be billed before receiving full results, that consists of the photos and detailed comment.

Try to include as much information as possible: first and last names, dates and places of birth and death, first and last names of spouses, religion. Every information may turn out very important during the research even if it seems irrelevant at the moment. If you don't have much information about that person or family, just write what you know.
We might ask you for some of these documents during the research, if we decide they may be useful.

    Heraldic Research

    In Poland there was up to 10% society identifying themselves as nobles, whilst in other countries it was only 1%. Therefore if you have polish roots, there is quite a big chance to find a noble ancestor in your family tree.

    The common belief that a -ski ending in polish last name means one comes from a noble family has a lot of truth itself but is not always right. There are noble non -ski endings, such as Sapieha, Dunin or Radziwiłł. On the other hand it is possible that people of a -ski ending last name did not belong to any noble family. Finally, even if your family name

    What if my family was noble?

    That’s a very good news! First, there is a high possibility to find many more documents about your family and that will lead us to discover their lifes in more details. Second, there is a high possibility to build your family tree much bigger than for peasant families, because vital facts for nobles were recorded by church a few centuries earlier than for poorer classes. To make it short, we probably will be able to find a wealth of detailed information about your family.

    What if my family wasn’t noble?

    Well, you never know it for sure unless you finish your research. If your father didn’t come from a noble family, there still can be some great-great-grandfather who fought a historical battle or holded an important office. The only way to find it out is performing a detailed family research.

    Let’s check your family name!

    Order a simple analysis of your last name. The cost is only $49 for one name and in return you will get an answer whether it is a noble name and some basic information about this noble family. After that you can choose if you want us to check whether your ancestor belonged to any of those noble families.

    Don’t forget to include not only your last name, but also your mother’s, grandmother’s and great-grandmother’s one! The more names, the bigger chance to find your noble family!

    Cemetery Research

    Searching the cemeteries might be an effective way to add new valuable information to your family tree.

    • finding new family members whose vital records were not possible to be accessed
    • finding new family or personal connections
    • confirming one’s childless or unmarried life
    • finding living members of your family

    A headstone is an important artifact that your family members founded here in Poland to honor a family member. We can find your family’s headstones and on your demand:

    • take photos
