Avis Genealogy

Summary Tab
Extended Tab

I was born and grew up in Slovakia. After my studies in Medieval History at the Universities in Bratislava, Slovakia and Brno, Czech republic, I did my PhD in Nurnberg, Germany. I started the genealogical research of my own family in early 2000s and later I helped more and more people with their research in Slovakia and Czech republic. I live in Nurnberg and specialize in the on-site research in Slovakia, Czech republic and Bavaria.

Service Description:
From the biblical Ten Commandments through the veneration of ancestors in the families of ancient Rome to medieval kings, tracing their roots to mythical forefathers, people have been trying to find out everything about their family history. With the breaking of the Industrial Revolution and waves of immigration from Europe in the 19th and 20th Century the ties with the family history loosened. We in Avis Genealogy focus our attention to the descendants of emigrants from Germany, Czech republic and Slovakia and help them to find their ancestors and put their families on their places in history. Thanks to on-site research, we can work not only with church and vital records, but also in obtaining further information through: census lists and address books, land records, obituaries, guild rolls, colonist lists, military lists, school and university matriculation lists, Pastoral books, court records, manorial files, historical books, biographical books, official gazettes, newspapers, calendars, historical maps. Avis Genealogy is specialized in research within the city of N rnberg, the state of Bavaria and in Slovakia and Czech republic.
