Testimonials:
SlovakGenealogy, LLC has been a godsend in the pursuit of my family history. Several years ago I hit the brick wall with my great-great grandfather, who lived in eastern Slovakia in the early nineteenth century. I had his death record but could not find his birth record, despite having searched for years. When I turned to SlovakGenealogy, they turned to their great knowledge, experience, foreign language skills and, most importantly, tenacity to the task. They located his baptism record in a musty parish church in the border region between Slovakia and Poland (apparently watched over by the local priest, who had no idea why anyone would be interested!). It was an extraordinary find, one that was inconceivable without such hard work on the ground. I cannot recommend SlovakGenealogy, LLC highly enough. Attested by: Lise M. 2012. Villages: Buglovce, Dominovce, Spi sk Nov Ves, Hagy Slovakia and Maniowy, Poland. SlovakGenealogy has been researching my Male and Female ancestors from Poland and Slovakia. Working on and off with the researchers for about 5 years, their research drive and ability amazes me. Once they get an idea of information needed to research, all of her effort in obtaining whatever, and from wherever possible is tried. They have been able to obtain information (such as dates and locations and family) for both my Maternal and Paternal lines reaching back to the mid-1700's with documentation to support each findings. I cannot offer enough praise for the work done for me in the past. I have no hesitancy in recommending SlovakGenealogy to anyone who desires to have 'one of the best' obtain their ancestry for them. I am planning to have SlovakGenealogy, LLC continue research for me in the future. Attested by: Stan B., 2013, Villages: Porinin and Murzasichle, Galicia; Frydman and Durstyn, Poland.
