selecting a genealogist to search docments for me
« on: Monday 03 October 16 12:31 BST (UK) »
hello, my question has probably been asked many times and is simply where do I find 'lists' of professional, reliable, and affordable genealogists who will do a search for one person. I need a search done from the former Russian 'Suwalki Gubernia" of non Jewish family with surname similar to Barauskas (or Barowski) and Graziskas (or similar) I would appreciate advice in choosing someone as I have heard some 'genealogists' do not deliver what they promise and keep asking for money.

I need a search done from the former Russian 'Suwalki Gubernia" of non Jewish family with surname similar to Barauskas (or Barowski) and Graziskas (or similar)

Where is this record held? And is it available to search? If it is available for a genealogist to look at, then it will be available to the public ..... so you just need a rootschatter in the area ......
Edmonds/Edmunds - mainly Sussex
DeBoo - London
Green - Suffolk
Parker - Sussex
Kemp - Essex
Farrington - Essex
Boniface - West Sussex

Thank you. I need a basic search to just locate evidence of my grandfather's birth, where and when he was born and parents names. because boundaries and borders changed since his birth in late 19th c possible need to look at Lithuanian and Suwalki archives. His detals are:

Johan Barowski arrived in Melbourne in 1913 on merchant ship ‘Worms’. He was crew, alone and deserted (stayed when ship left). He had no proof who he was or where from, only his word in 1919 details on marriage certificate and in 1921 when naturalized. This is all I know.

His name Johan (Hans) Barowski (Barowsky, Barauskas, etc)
Nationality ‘Russian’ because Suwalki Gubernia was former Russian Territory when he left about 1910 -11.
Born December 1 1894, Suwalki Gubernia
I do not know which villiage.
Father Joseph Barowski – a wheelwright
Mother Mary Graziskas (Grazickas, Grazulis, etc

He died of cancer age 55 in Bendigo Australia in 1951.
He never spoke of his family but received letters from his mother for a number of years.
His parents ‘may’ have gone USA. Documents may be in Villnis or maybe at Suwalki, do you correspond with Suwalki Archives?



Thank you

Judith Barowski
