These data may even be the clues for a great leap back in time to the next generation!

Judit could read entries I couldn't. This meant a great leap for me in identifying my ancestors in church registers.

Judit has brought to the task not just the skills as a translator, helping to discern often very old and confusing penmanship but also working with comprehensive amounts of information and sifting through, translating the most important components that help advance the search and keep the costs lower. I feel she is an invested partner in this search and is a pleasure to work with. I am grateful for being connected with her and have a much better sense of my ancestry with real information and connections, thanks to Judit.

 I couldn't be more pleased with hiring Judit, to translate a document for me from 1580, written in Medieval Latin.  She never hesitated about her ability and was very efficient, completing the task within two weeks. Judit is very knowledgeable from her many years experience and was able to answer all of my questions, giving me a history lesson along the way. I highly recommend Judit and would not hesitate to use her services again.
