See what some of my past clients and students have to say about how I have helped them find out about their ancestors!

From clients…

“Antra goes above and beyond to help connect you to your Latvian heritage. Her passion for the history and her experience researching these complex data sources shines through in the incredible photos, articles and census data she was able to share. Our family tree is coming together thanks to her great work.” – Alana, Canada

“All our efforts to trace our Latvian ancestry had failed until Antra opened a door to the past we had been dreaming about for a long time. Receiving regular update emails with news of her research was always exciting and Antra’s prompt and friendly responses to our emails made it a pleasure to deal with her. The photos Antra took of the area our family came from was the icing on the cake. Now we’re dreaming of a visit to Latvia.” – Maree, Australia

“Antra has helped me break down multiple brick walls in my Latvian family research. As a genealogy lover myself, I really love to do my own research, but when I am stuck I turn to her, and time and time again she has been able to skillfully locate documents I never imagined existed within the archives in Rīga. Her sincere passion for Latvian genealogy and the experience she has amassed over the years on the subject speak for themselves as testimonies for her expertise. She is thorough and precise and will exhaust all resources in order to introduce you to your Latvian ancestors!” – Rachelle, Canada (please visit Rachelle’s blog here!)

“I have been most impressed by Antra’s professionalism throughout this project and I am very grateful to her for her sensitivity and her meticulous recording of not only my family’s history but how she has been able to use her knowledge to allow me to make sense of events. Antra is to be highly recommended for any project that she undertakes as she applies herself enthusiastically, with dedication and professionalism.” – Pauline, UK

“Antra has been helping me for the last 9 months to research my husband’s Latvian family history. We knew virtually nothing when we started out and now have many names, dates, places etc. The diary translations, archive searches, church record advice and general help and information about Latvia has been an extremely valuable gift for our family. It is an ongoing adventure of new discoveries and family connections and none of it would have been possible without Antra’s help and services. Thanks so much and looking forward to breaking down more brick walls!!” – Ana, Australia

From students….

“I really want to thank you for offering this class. It gave me a real sense of Latvian history – almost as if living history and not just reading about it.” – Vija, USA

“This course far outdid any expectations I had.” – Justina, USA

“Antra has put together an amazing class which has exceeded all of my expectations. Each module was thoughtfully constructed to address an important facet of research. She has taken the mystery out of available records and taught me how to search through them. The exercises in translating cursive writing have been very beneficial, making it possible for me to earch for and read my family’s records. I have also been able to go back and translate a letter that my German grandmother wrote to her sister in 1954. Thank you, Antra.” – Gary, USA
