For any of my Danish friends that are researching their genealogy…this man will blow you away. Very good at what he does is a huge understatement! Helped me through a brick wall I’ve struggled with for YEARS!
I recently engaged the services of Kim Melchior as a professional Scandinavian Genealogy researcher to help me get past a wall in my own amateur genealogical research. Kim was quickly able to access relevant records. In five hours of research he found several records relating to my Danish and Swedish ancestors which I had been unable to find, and he got me past the dead end that had me stumped. I was delighted at all the information he found for me, and so I consider the fee that he charges to be good value for money. He also responded very quickly to my inquiry and was very personable and helpful. I have no hesitation in recommending him to others who would like help with their Scandinavian research.
“I recently hired Kim Melchior to locate Danish records from the late 1800’s and early 1900’s, as well as, attempt to the greatest extent possible, find descendants of these family records in Denmark. Kim excelled on both fronts, first quickly and efficiently locating records of the Copenhagen family and secondly, making professional inquires to the Danish Civil authorities and probate courts that lead to information on the family members we were searching for. I highly recommend Kim for Danish research.”
“If you are researching in Scandinavia, I can highly recommend that you engage Kim Melchior to help you find answers to your questions. I have used the services of Kim on two occasions for research in Sweden and both times he did a great job. Not only did he find the answers to all of my questions but he also put his answers in the context of Swedish society norms that existed at the time of the events that I was researching. As a result of his extra effort, my family has a much better understanding of our Swedish roots and why our ancestors came to America. Kim responded promptly to my inquiry and I felt his fees were commensurate with the value of the information that I received.”
“My journey of discovery researching my ancestors came to a big dead end with a Danish great grandfather until I lucked onto Scandinavian Genealogy Research Center’s website. I contacted Kim and he immediately began the search for my Great grandfather’s family by looking through Danish records. He knew exactly where to look and with his knowledge of how “the system” works (and reading Danish helped too) quickly found many more ancestors for me. Subsequently I was able to visit Denmark and see exactly where my family came from, as well as visit the local Churches and villages where they lived.
It was very easy to ask questions via email and talk utilizing Skype, and even easier to pay through Paypal. The information I requested came quickly via email and the whole process was much easier than I expected.”
Being a genealogist myself, I hesitated asking someone else to conduct research for me. Hearing other stellar recommendations about Kim Melchior, I decided to contact him to see if he could break down a brick wall for me that had been standing unmoved for many years. Since my line is Danish and he specializes in Scandinavian genealogy, I decided to give it try.
Kim was able to find information about three generations of my great grandmother which took the line back to the mid 1700’s. My outlay of money was insignificant compared to the amount of time Kim put into researching my line with very little information given by me to him. Kim also validated his findings so that I know it is solid. He kept in touch with me every step of the way showing great interest in my family line.
Very quickly, he produced very interesting reports with great supporting documentation. Better hurry and hire him before I do again for other segments of my tree!
I would recommend anyone stumped in their searches for ancestors in Denmark to seek help from Kim Melchior. He was born and lived in Denmark for more than twenty years and is very knowledgeable concerning customs in the country as well as where to find official records. He was especially helpful to me in helping me understand the Scleswig/Holstein, Prussia, Germany relationship with the specific area my ancestors lived in. I heartily recommend Kim as a highly professional genealogist.
Kim Melchior has been doing Danish and Norwegian research for us for several years. He is highly qualified, diligent, thorough and documents all his sources. His biggest asset is his ability to think outside the box during the process of finding records and information about our ancestors. He also tries to fill in the details that make our ancestors interesting. We recommend him to anyone who has Scandinavian ancestors.
I recommend highly Kim Melchior as a Swedish genealogist. He has researched successfully several of my Swedish lines in the past eight years. He knows the customs and culture of Sweden, in addition to reading the language fluently. This has been a large factor in finding my relatives. He is friendly and courteous. His extensive experience shows in his prompt and comprehensive reports. He continues to surprise me with creative solutions to those brick walls we all encounter.
Kim Melchior has through his many years as a genealogist developed a huge knowledge of the various sources and archival material, and you never go in vain when you ask Kim for advice or guidance, or if he otherwise is to assist you with genealogical research in Denmark, Norway or Sweden.
I got to know Kim when I started genealogical research about six years ago, and I will never hesitate to recommend him to people who are stuck with a branch on their family tree or want to establish contact with a serious researcher to perform a genealogy research task for them. You can be sure that Kim’s research is performed conscientiously and with a professional approach to the task.
Kim’s extensive knowledge of Scandinavian genealogy and history has been a great help to me and I am sure that many will appreciate the work he delivers.
