Oh THANK YOU so much. I was so excited and thrilled to see the records. My sisters and I will now look at all the documents to see how we can fill out our family tree. If we need more information may I contract with you again please.

Research project:
Find wartime pal in Vienna

Living in Australia and having been asked by a dear friend who was born Amsterdam and lived there till his teens years before moving to Australia, to try and find a childhood pal who had holidayed with he and his family immediately after WWII. The lady searching for was from Vienna. With little other information other than her name, I discovered Johan Hammer online and asked could he help? Although not his area of expertise, he undertook to make initial investigations. Locating living people due to privacy is rather difficult, however to his credit and within a very short time Johann had located and spoken with the lady in question. She is still very much alive and interested in corresponding with her wartime pal, and thanks to Johann two war time friends have spoken on phone and have plans to meet in September. We highly recommend Johann for his professionalism, his promptness and caring during this search.

Hi Johann,
This is fantastic, thank so much for your research. Of course I had no idea XXX’s origins and the fact that he was born in Prag is amazing. I’ve traveled to Prag twice and if I had only known – incentive to travel back at least one more time.
Thank you again so much for your efforts.
