About my experience:
I have been passionate about genealogy for over ten years.
Over the years , I have been learning how to find ancestors, how to recreate a family tree. At the time, I indexed about 60 000 birth, marriages and deaths certificates written in Polish, Russian and Latin.
About 1500 translation (birth, marriages and deaths certificates) from Russian and Polish and into English.
