About & Contacts

After a working life dedicated to selling products, I quit and decided to give people KNOWLEDGE.

I love to search stories that nobody in the world knows any longer.

I love to help people unveiling their past.

I love to learn, at every research, the history of a different place.

I love to get in touch with people from all over the world who share my same passion for genealogy

I love to scroll old, dusty books, to interpretate bad handwritings, to take pictures in a poorly lit archive, to turn thousand pages in search of a single name, to write long reports and to wear my eyes out filling family trees with new data.

My name is Elena and I love this job.
