Searching, flicking through and helping to discover the past is my real passion… The moment when an elderly lady has tears in her eyes, because she has just solved a family mystery… The joy of finding an old letter or an article about an ancestor in a 19th century newspaper… The feeling of connection with the people who are long gone… Hours and hours spent at the archives, libraries, museums are so worth it!
After I obtained two MA degrees in History majoring in the Archival Studies and International Studies at the University of Wrocław, I was working at the British Library in London for over a decade. During that time, I worked tirelessly to become a Chartered Librarian. I spent a few years as a Reference Librarian in the India Office Records discovering the history of the East India Company and the areas under its rule. For some time, I also worked as an Internet Archivist. Dealing with thousands of enquiries, practical help and advice to researchers and creating digital archives and collections was not only a source of joy and pride, but also getting a great knowledge about keeping the archives, genealogy and digital research.
Now it is time to use my experience in a different way: that is how the ‘Archives, Genealogy, Digital Research’ came to life. Because who does not need the documents, family archives or company’s paperwork sorted? And done with real passion.
My services include archives and documents management, research, family history and digitisation for individual clients, companies and institutions.
