What Clients Are Saying:
Thank you so much for the translation! Now I have the names of three of my paternal grandfather’s grandparents. This is the “brick wall” I’ve been trying to break through for a long time…many thanks for your prompt and professional work.
“Katherine’s presentation was ultimately the most informative of all the sessions I’ve been to today! I’ve been struggling with being able to decipher all the German records that I’ve been looking at, and now I understand many of the words & abbreviations of those words!”
Just got home to find this treat in my inbox. I am thrilled to read the words my [ancestor] Christopher read; that he felt deeply enough to quote. Great job on the translation.
“Your webinars have been of great help and have lifted my confidence level beyond all expectations…Thank you again for this opportunity to go “beyond the borders”, opening up a world to me that I had truly thought would remain closed without extensive training and education. I am truly grateful.”

Thanks to her skill in deciphering the texts, I’ve learned a great deal about my family history, and she was particularly thorough in researching the places and names included in the text. Katherine is professional and resourceful with a great eye for detail – exactly as a good translator should be – and I would not hesitate in recommending her.
My German in-laws would not say one word about the past, however when they both passed away, we found two huge boxes of letters, journals, and pictures that documented every day of WWII for them. We also found 100 years of old family documents to prove they were Aryan in accordance with the Nuremburg Laws. For the last ten years, we have figured there was one person in the family history who had converted from Judaism and that person had saved those who came after from certain death, but we coul…
Thank you so much for doing my translation, I am thrilled to pieces and this afternoon I am going to send it off to all the family here in England and in Germany. How you translated that writing I just don’t know, but I suppose if you study languages it perhaps becomes a little easier! Many thanks again, I am so delighted. And isn’t it interesting!
“She knew her topic and presented it in a manner I could understand. Her presentation was above and beyond my expectations.”
