Unlike in Germany, Switzerland, Great Britain, the United States of America and, above all, France, where genealogical-historical companies are well known and are often structured under the umbrella of a professional organisation, this type of institution has remained relatively unknown in Austria until now.

Historikerkanzlei Genealogisch-Historische Recherchen GmbH was founded in 2004 by three historians with the collaboration of a university professor for Modern and Contemporary History. Since then we have focused on supporting our clients in the areas of genealogical research and heir search, whilst also offering a range of other historical services.

Today, we have 30 highly-qualified employees (mainly historians and legal professionals) and approximately 120 freelance correspondents and partners in almost 100 countries all over the word (including 2 employees in Israel, 2 in Great Britain and 2 in Poland, together with further personnel in key emigration countries).

Spoken languages

German, English, French, Italian, Croatian, Dutch, Austrian sign language, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Swedish, Serbian, Slovak, Slovene, Spanish, Czech, and Hungarian
