How the Idea of Person Search Occurred To Us
You must be already wondering, upon what ground we should make
you such offers as person search, address proof or ancestry tracing. Who are
we, the ones, in whose hands you entrust some sacred pages of your past ? Why
should it be exactly our agency, that is just what you need to solve
your problem, and why should we be ready to take such a responsibility and get
engaged into retrieval work ?
At this point I'd like to confide you, why and how I came to the idea of
founding Liebe Menschen Wiederifinden and decided to offer professional
assistance in the field of person search..
In 2001 I came across a book entitled "Family chronicles" in some
book-store, a volume of articles on how genealogy - the ancestry-tracing
schience - functions. Ispired by the information I got out of it, I set off
enthusiastically to find out my family roots. At first, I made inquiries in
the circle of my closest kith and kin, after which I proceeded to contact my
"unknown relatives", the ones who I 'd never met in my life. "You
don't know me yet, but your greatgrandfather and my greatgrandmother were
siblings and they came together from... in 1911." Mostly it
wasn't hard at all to establish a communication and find out our common
Later I even visited some of my newly-found family members personally, though at
times I had to travel abroad to meet them. As I
had started with the investigation, I could hardly imagine then, in how many
aspects I'd benefit from it, by finding people of the same descent as I am and
restoring the long-forgotten traces. Quite astonishing was also the sense of
unity, which equally developed between me and my "new"
But how could I restore reminiscences from those bygone times,
whose actual witnesses were no more alive and thus couldn't help me fill in the
spaces in the patchwork of my family history ? Then I continued my search in
archives, registration offices, gathering tiny bits of information from chronicles and archive films - which was quite an intricate and time-consuming,
but highly exciting and beneficial task.
Through the tracing of my own ancestry I learned quite a lot about how even on
hand of outdated and incomplete information one can find lost people again and
what a range of amazing opportunuties there exists for personal data retrieval.
Apart from that I managed to collect useful experience about how personal
contact is to be established with total strangers, what a necessity intuition
represents for this activity, as well as what sort of emotions this work fills
Both the experience and the joy from my previous investigation inspired me
further to enter the sphere of person search on a professional scale. My
knowledge and the earlier collected information help me now daily to succeed in my
Since then I've been doing my best to fulfil numerous requests by finding
for other people the dearest ones, who they'd lost out of sight, and I always
rejoice when the work for my clients is gratified with as much success and
elation as my own root-tracing was for me before.
Who knows, perhaps, we can soon enough make the faded traces of tenderness
reappear in your life again by bringing a person from your past into
