About Us

portrait-studios-halCeilDr. Hal Learman and Ceil Wendt Jensen are Professional Genealogists who present practical examples and suggestions on how to use records, databases, and archives to start or advance your genealogy research. They dispel the myth that records were destroyed during the World Wars and that language barriers make European research difficult. A lavishly illustrated workbook, Sto Lat: A Modern Guide for Polish Genealogy, offers a plan for investigating at least one hundred years of family records; and is a compilation of traditional and digital techniques developed over thirty years of personal research and teaching. These are tried and true procedures used for clients and with patrons. Common research questions are answered and suggestions are offered to help novice and advanced researchers find ancestors in North America and Poland.
