Extensive experience

I have extensive experience with Danish sources regarding emigration from Denmark to the USA.

Old handwriting

I am very competent in deciphering old texts, even gothic handwriting from the 17th and 18th centuries.

Precise sources

I always provide precise source references and detailed research notes so the reasoning behind each conclusion is clear.

Lene truly has a gift for researching genealogy. But the real gift is the final ancestry document or report. Professional quality in every aspect.
