Historical Documents and Genealogy

Did you find letters from your great-grandmother or a certificate of an ancestor, written in Danish, Finnish, Icelandic, Norwegian or Swedish? If you can't read these languages anymore, I am able to shed a light on your family's history.

In the meager years of the middle and late 19th century, a huge part of the rural population of the nordic countries crossed the ocean and tried their luck in North America. Documents from personal belongings often reveal valuable information about the newcomer's background and conditions.

If your text is handwritten, I first produce a transcription true to the original, then a translation to modern English.

Take advantage of my investigative and research skills, as well as my language competences, to find out more relevant information about your ancestors in the archives of the nordic countries.
