My name is Krisztina Szücs, a dedicated family tree researcher with a degree in economics.
Making of my own family tree made me enthusiastic to endear this kind of research 15 years ago. Since then, I have delighted many people with a beautiful family tree, or curiosities about their ancestors. I have lifted the veil of long-forgotten secrets and verified (or not) the correctness of family legends several times.
Many of us inquired where we came from, where our ancestors came from. I recommend my family tree research service to them.
Research is a wonderful thing that I pursue with great passion. I’m glad to help taking over this complicated, energy-consuming job from them, because research for an ordinary person sometimes lasts for years.
During my job, I comb through thousands of pages of registers for data often in Latin and I visit archives and libraries. I cogitate, I look for correlations and support all the data I find with facts. Name changes are often mean difficulty, or the repetition of names in settlements is frequent. I also try to overcome these obstacles.
I most often make straight family trees. This means that I list all available parent pairs from the starting person. If I start back in time on the line of an adult, I will get to 6-7 generations in the registers, until the early 1800s, sometimes even the 1700s! It is an infinitely exciting feeling to see the names of long-forgotten ancestors in old registry entries, to see into their lives, as if we were on a time travel.
When handing over the family tree, the Customer will know the name, place of origin, occupation, as well as their ethnicity, the religion and social status of their predecessors. If the documents also hide interesting things like double weddings with siblings, hidden children, family dramas, I also record them. Sometimes the existence of a noble rank is also revealed.
When You contact me, I will send you a spreadsheet, which I will fill out and wait back to start working. The more the starting point, the more likely the research will lead to success. The most important information is the sure knowledge of denominational affiliation and place of residence. Deaths are especially important as well, because I rarely find them randomly, only if I search purposefully in a given year, in a given settlement.
It is important to emphasize that I can only search for ancestors in Hungary!
If the traces leads to abroad, the involvement of a local researcher is required at an additional cost. The time to complete the family tree is about 1-2 months from the start.
Nowadays it is very popular to investigate our origin by DNA testing. My Clients often ask how it differs from my work. The answer is very simple: a lot of work! A percentage value is detected from the taken, submitted DNA sample, which indicates the geographical, ethnic group type of the individual's origin. Because a lot of people do this, a huge database is created and there is a high probability of finding relatives with whom we share some percentage of our genetic stock, i.e. a very distant relative - because we had a common ancestor, e.g. in the 1700s. But this research stops here. It is important to note that when ordering such a test, all the risks of storing personal data must be taken into account, as our genetic information will now be in the database of the testing company.
