- Arrange the visits of the regional archives (reserve the necessary books ahead), Town Halls (make sure they expect you), birth registers, Church registers.
- Arrange reunions with the local people who are related to you (or at least people who can tell stories about your ancestors).
- Translate letters written by you or your new Czech friends.
- Find the history of the town and area and send you the information and the web links.


We have arranged many of these Genealogy Tours. Sometimes are our family tours very successful (we meet some friends or members of the family, they get connected and the friendship goes on ... ), but sometimes we just visit the place, take a lot of pictures,  speak with some local people and learn more about the town and area.
