Have you reached a “brick wall” in your genealogy research? Onsite genealogy research in Czechia may just be the key to extending your Czech ancestry. We have genealogists in Czechia that can help!
Challenges in Czech Genealogy Research
The majority of Czech genealogical research is conducted by using church records, so knowing the religion of your ancestors and their exact town of origin is essential. While many church records of all denominations have been digitized by the various Czech archives and are online, some books are still in the process of digitization and are only available onsite in the archives. More recent civil registration records (20th century) are still held by the local offices and must also be accessed onsite.
Our Team of Professional Genealogists Can Help
If you have Czech ancestry, our professionals can track down the city/town of origin of your ancestors, determine where that location actually is today, and identify where the records for that place are currently kept. For those areas that don’t have records available online, our onsite agents can then visit that location to obtain any documents that are available.
