THE SERVICES – A SHORT DESCRIPTION
1. An extensive research of the chosen family branch[-es]: Birth, death, marriage and census records, that may contain information about the family and the lineage are reviewed, translated and analyzed. Translations are necessary, since the records in the past centuries were written in Russian, Polish and Latin languages. Below is one example of the records:
This is just one of the examples of death records, written in Russian. This is considered a well preserved record. Many of them are in a worse condition, blurred, ripped, etc.
The information provided by the records contain these details about members of the family:
Dates of birth, death, marriage.
Names, surnames and maiden names.
Locations where family members resided in different periods of their lives.
Social status. In some occasions – occupations.
Causes of death.
Wedding witnesses, godparents.
2. The building of the ANCESTRY CHART, otherwise known as a family tree: a chart representing family relationships in a conventional tree structure. Genealogical data can be represented in several formats, for example as a pedigree or ancestry chart. Family trees are often presented with the oldest generations at the top and the newer generations at the bottom. An ancestry chart, which is a tree showing the ancestors of an individual, will more closely resemble a tree in shape, being wider at the top than the bottom. An example of one of our works is shown below:
The size and shape of the ancestry chart depends on the size of the family and the availability of the records.
As a final result we provide:
Photocopies [numbered] of the original records [birth, death, marriage, census], relevant to the family lineage.
Full translations for the records provided.
A table of sources, providing a short explanation for each numbered document and a source in the Lithuanian National Historical Archives or any other archives. The example of table is provided below:
