Warum Ahnenforschung?

In founding Beyond History I have made my hobby a profession. It all started with me exploring my family history to learn where I come from. I also traveled to the places where my ancestors lived once. That gave me an idea of their lives. The knowledge about my family background and especially visiting these places is very emotional and still indescribable. Me and my team love to make this experiences possible for the clients of Beyond History.

Warum Ahnenforschung?

I like the contact and conversations with people and I have always been interested in history. Since I have met a brick wall in my own family research, I help others to uncover their history. Because: „It wouldn’t be as it is today, if it wouldn’t have been as it was before.“

Warum Ahnenforschung?

Since my childhood I was fascinated by long-gone eras and everything „old“. Genealogy is a way to establish a connection to earlier generations. To browse old written sources, to hold ancient books and papers in one’s hand and to find proof of the life of a specific person is always an exciting treasure hunt.

Warum Ahnenforschung?

I always liked to write, to tell and capture stories. In regards to my background in cultual history it suggested itself to go into genealogy after my studies. As a matter of fact the best and most exciting stories come from life itself!

Warum Ahnenforschung?

To ask questions, to conduct research, to immerse in history, to discover the unknown – this fascinated me about studying history. As a genealogist I can live these passions professionally. Every case has a special story I can trace.
