FAQ
Where to begin researching information about ancestors?
In order to start research, or to simply determine its prospects, first you need to find out what data you have at the moment. Key information for deep research:

  • Names of the oldest ancestors for each line that you want to explore;
  • Date and place of birth / marriage / death;
  • Religion (until 1917).

Therefore, first of all, you should collect everything that you remember about your living relatives and ancestors and if possible, discuss this with your relatives, who are more knowledgeable on this matter.
Terms of research
On average, the term to complete genealogical research for all lines to the maximum possible depth is about 6 months (it can be up to 1 year. However, the terms can vary both up and down depending on your goals, volume, availability and the storage places of the documents that will be used. If you want to coincide the research with a family holiday or present the research to friends, but there is very little time left, we recommend you to use the service of registration of existing information in a family tree or book, or purchase a gift certificate for the research.
What documents do you work with?
During the research, we use the main genealogical sources:
  • metric books;
  • confessional statements
  • revision lists.

As well as additional genealogical sources:
  • personal files of the repressed;
  • personal files of university students;
  • personal files of employees of educational institutions and other organizations;
  • honour lists;
  • Housing registration books;
  • conscription lists;
  • personal files of officers;
  • medical cards;
  • Kommunist Party member's files;
  • military cards;
  • clergy statements (for the clergy);
  • urban residential book (for townspeople).
What information about ancestors will I get from archival sources?
If we talk about the main genealogical sources, then you will mostly find general information about the ancestors: name, years of life, family composition, class, religion. More extensive data can be obtained from additional sources, such as

  • personal files of the repressed;
  • personal files of students, employees of enterprises and organizations, etc.
Until which generation can I get information about during the research?
With good preservation of documents for the settlements of interest, as a rule, it is possible to restore the generation until the end of the 17th - beginning of the 18th century. This is due to the fact that the main genealogical sources originate precisely since the 18th century (metrical books, confessional statements , revision lists). You can get a free estimate of the search prospects of your case.
Research price
The research price can vary significantly depending on:

  • your goals (to find information about 1 ancestor / 1 line / all lines);
  • regions where ancestors lived;
  • the content of documents that have been preserved in these settlements;
  • availability of documents.

Therefore, we recommend you to get a free estimate of the price of research in your individual situation.

The price for comprehensive research usually starts from 1000 dollars.
How can I be sure of the accuracy of the information I receive?
In order to make sure of the accuracy of the information provided and to supplement your family archive, you can specify in the order that you want to receive original photocopies of all records found during the research.
Can I get information from the archives by myself?
Yes, now the archives of Ukraine are opened to all citizens . However, to work on drawing up your generation you need:

  • free time (as most of the reading rooms are opened only on weekdays, from 9.00 a.m. to 6 p.m. (and often till 5 p.m.);

  • specific skills and knowledge (the ability to read and work with handwritten texts of the 18-19th century, navigate in genealogical sources, the history of one's region, be able to correctly analyze and interpret the found records from metrics, build a filiation.

There is also the option of correspondence with archives, requesting a data directly from the archive's employees. As a rule, this process takes years and may not bring the expected result.
