Hello, I'm Leonid
I'm a genealogist and I search for your ancestors in archives, as well as restore contact between relatives all over the world. The results of my work come out as an ancestry chart that I can turn into an elaborate family tree.
My work will allow you to explore your family history, acknowledge yourself as a part of a nation, discover the forgotten, save and forward the knowledge about your ancestors.
I work with archives all over the former USSR / Russian Empire, in eastern and western Europe, the Americas. I freely speak English, Russian, German and Italian. I read in about a dozen living languages as well as Latin. I have a historic and legal education as well as 20 years of experience in archive and internet search. Huge experience in cartography, ethnology, ethnography, religiology and travels.
I'm committed with heart and soul to my work - you'll feel it right from our first conversation!

There is a lore in your family, that your ancestors came from the Russian Empire or the former Soviet Union. You don't know more but would like to change that. Complete your knowledge of the family history and answer all those questions you can't ask your grandparents anymore. Would you like to know what property your family owned or how does the house look like, where your grandparents were born?
Then don't wait anymore and call me!
My services are a perfect present! Foremost for yourself, as well as your parents and children. A perfect present for someone, who has got it all! A present for every family occasion - a Christmas present, a Birthday present, a wedding gift!
We talk to each other on the phone, WhatsApp or Skype. During our conversation the amount of information available to you becomes clear, we'll discuss your wishes and directions of research, clarify its duration. We specify the price and I'll send you a contract.
On a regular basis we'll discuss the interim results as I present my interim reports to you. Final research results will be provided to you on an average of three months.
I'm located in Saint Petersburg, Russia (at the heart of the Russian Empire's archives), but in today's age of information technology I'm able to work smoothly with clients and archives all over the world. Nevertheless, if the need arises, I'm ready to travel anywhere in the world swiflty in person.
