Your Personal Book

Surname research is family history. In your personal family book you learn all the interesting information about your surname and about the emigration history of your family.

We pursue the question of the origin of your European roots, how the name developed linguistically and what meaning ultimately forms the basis of it.

In doing so we consult substantial map material and interpret your surname according to the most current research findings for which Prof. Jürgen Udolph – Germany’s most renowned and well-known name researcher – vouches with his name research center.
