From the Father of Microbiology, Antonie (Philips) van Leeuwenhoek (1632-1723), to Master Painters such as Rembrandt (Harmenszoon) van Rijn (1606-1669) and Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890); from philosophers such as Erasmus of Rotterdam (1466-1536) and Baruch Spinoza (1632-1677) to the diary of Holocaust victim Anne Frank (1929-1945); of course not forgetting the Delta Works, which were constructed from 1958-1997 after the flooding in 1953: the reputation of the Dutch exceeds itself, despite the modest size of The Netherlands as a country.
Do you have Dutch roots? We can help you map your lineage and family history by conducting in-depth genealogical research. The technique we use is known as forensic genealogy, which is basically the study of kinship and identity as it pertains to the law, starting with the deceased working one's way back to the living, often through his or her ascendents. This technique is also known as 'reverse genealogy' and it not only proves valuable for the purpose of due diligence for probate and intestacy cases, but also provides unique insights into the lives of your deceased ancestors or lost family members when conducting family research.
Using historical, genealogical and legal resources that are at our disposal, we conduct research within The Netherlands and Belgium ourselves. Part of the investigation can be done online, while we visit archives throughout the country for other aspects of the case. Although we conduct any type of research, we specialize in the Dutch Resistance and War Criminality. Translation of original documents to the English or German language is part of our service. Should the research lead us across borders, then we can call on the help of local colleagues that we are affiliated with.
Our fee for genealogical research depends on the case and the research question presented to us. Please allow us to provide a quote that has been tailored fit for your specific needs. In general, we work with an hourly fee, office costs and reimbursement of expenses. Advanced payment of at least three (3) hours is requested. To all agreements we enter, our general terms and conditions apply, a Dutch copy of which can be found here (English translation is in the make).
Like any responsible legal professional, we take the privacy of persons involved seriously. As such we are registered with the Dutch Data Protection Authority and comply with the Personal Data Protection Act of 2000. Information is generally provided for genealogical purposes only and we expect our clients to treat this information in accordance with governing laws and with consideration of the privacy of living people named in any report. The client who retains our services indemnifies us fully in this regard.
