Dear Mr. Tomowiak,
First it is very important for me to confirm to you that your institution and, above all, you have provided extremely professional and, above all, trustworthy work in this estate matter! From the beginning I was very impressed by your precise course of action.
<br/>I give you kudos for that.
Sincerely, U.G.

Sender: I. U. │ To: Alena Teuber│ July 20, 2020

Dear Mrs. Teuber,
Many thanks for the pleasing news. We didn’t dare to hope that the proceedings would come to such a positive end for me and my co-heirs. We are tremendously happy!
<br/>Again, many thanks for your work, we wish you all the best..
Kind regards,
I.U.

Sender: M. v. B. │ To: Dr. Max Bloch│ July 15, 2020

Dear Dr. Bloch,
In your last email you informed me that the inheritance matter would be completed as soon as the last tax demand had been paid. I have transferred this demand to the tax office a while ago and consider the matter as settled.

Therefore, I would like to express my thanks for your intensive efforts to bring light into this “hereditary darkness” and to convince the heirs also to accept it, which developed into the family coming together, and for all the other work, of which we heirs are unaware.
Noch einmal von Herzen - Danke für alles.
Many thanks and best wishes,
M v. B.

Sender: I. G. | To: Nina Kulp | December 30, 2019

Dear Ms. Kulp,
I’ve enclosed the accounting I’ve signed and dated on 23 December 2019. I’d like to say “THANK YOU” for the painstaking research conducted to locate all the heirs. I would also like to say “THANK YOU” to the unknown decedent, even though she’s no longer on this beautiful planet. I wish you all the best and remain,

Sincerely yours, I. G.

Sender: G. T. | To: Dr. U. Kasper | September 17, 2019

Dear Dr. Kasper,
Today I received the news about my inheritance. I was very happy about it. When I consider that I have received quite a bit of money and haven’t done anything for that, it’s simply wonderful! I would like to sincerely thank you and remain,

Sincerely yours, G.T.

Sender: S. R. | To: Peter Wegner | August 12, 2019

Dear Mr. Wegner,
I was very pleased to receive your last letter dated 2 August 2019 – the estate matter for the relatives has been finalized – that is very pleasing! I would like to thank you for your efforts and work in this matter, but in particular for your dedication and always friendly communications by phone and mail. Us relatives now have not only a sum of money in our accounts, but also more knowledge of our family’s tree, which is the real gain for me. Thank you very much.

Wishing you all the best, S. R.

Sender: A-M. E. │ To: Rainer Tomowiak │March 05, 2019

Dear Mr. Tomowiak and Team!
iMany thanks for your insightful and quick handling of the inheritance matter. It is nice when one unexpectedly receives a sum of money which one had not anticipated. It is even nicer, however, to learn so much about the family history of one’s grandmother (paternal side), particularly since one was not interested in it as a child.

Best regards, A-M. E.

Attorney as Estate Administrator

Because of his longtime work, the undersigned knows that the field of probate research is teeming with many individuals who cannot be referred to as professional, experienced or sometimes even serious. GEN Gesellschaft für Erbenermittlung mbH, however, belongs to the small, top-level group of probate researchers in Germany – otherwise, the undersigned and his partner would not work with this probate researcher.

Sincerely, D.J.C. Attorney as Estate Administrator

Sender: R. v. H. | To: Nina Kulp | June 19, 2018

Dear Ms. Kulp,
(…) I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your perseverance and commitment in this evidently not very simple inheritance matter. Without your company we wouldn’t have learned about the inheritance. And in addition to the financial gains we are also pleased to learn about the family structure you researched regarding the relatives of our grandfather on the Haben branch (…)


Many thanks and all the best, R. v.H.

Sender: D.F. | To: Dr. Ulrich Kasper | June 4, 2018

Dear Dr Ulrich Kasper,
Just to say Many Thanks for the time and trouble and many correspondence to myself. I am very happy to have received the monies from my late relative U.G.


Kindest Regards D.F.

Sender: H.S. | To: Andreas Kamp | May 21, 2019

Dear Dr. Kamp,
With this letter I would like to thank you again for your efforts to accomplish the closure of this family matter. The inheritance was deposited into our account today! We will definitely never again have so much luck in life that you contact us again! We wish you all the best, especially health and contentment. Many thanks and kind regards from

H.S. and spouse from Dresden

Sender: U. & B.T. | To: Andreas Kamp | May 17, 2019

Dear Dr. Kamp,
We would like to thank you for your kind words. We are now also relaxed that everything has come to a good and quick end. Again, THANK YOU to you and your team. We will now consider how to utilize it. Until now we have waited for this day to come and now we can start planning. If our health goes well, we want to take a cruise of the Rhine, Neckar and Main. Our health must permit it. With friendly greetings we remain,

U. and B. T.

Sender: D.G.│To: Alena Teuber│September 15, 2017

Dear Mrs. Teuber,
I thank you very much for your dedication and wish you and your company continued success.

Sincerely, D.G.

Sender: W.R.│To: Rainer Tomowiak│September 14, 2017

Dear Mr. Tomowiak,
I confirm with thanks the receipt of the large envelope which arrived safely. In this were among other things very interesting documents, which I will partially also send to the other co-heirs.

For your excellent work/service in this matter I would like to thank you – also in the name of the other co-heirs. Because I never knew D.W. (displacement), I/we assume that he, his brother and his mother died in Dresden in 1945; I was very skeptical and simply did not want to believe “this.”

Again, many thanks!

Yours truly, W.R.

P.S. I can recommend your probate research to “everyone!”

Sender: H.W.│To: GEN Berlin│July 26, 2017

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,
It has been a need of mine for some time now – and overdue – to express to you my thanks and my appreciation.

Of course it is your job to locate heirs. I am, however, sure that in my case your colleague Mrs. Fischer’s particular personal commitment, persistence and surely also her experience and knowledge had a great share in the success of the case.

Sincerely, H.W.

Sender: A.K.│To: Brigitta Fischer│September 09, 2016

Dear Mrs. Fischer,
Now the matter has finally come to an end! After almost exactly 13 years few of my closest relatives had expected such a thing. But we are very happy, even if my mother is no longer consciously aware of it. We can use the amount towards her care.

The case Agnes Z. will surely go down in your company’s history. The lengthy research with constant turns and new, succeeding participants probably does not happen in every search for heirs.

I would like to thank you wholeheartedly for your work. In the future I will probably miss my yearly email to you asking about the status of the case Agnes Z. Thank you again for your tenacious fight, particularly during the final phases of the case, and for your friendly telephone conversations and emails.

Sincerely, A.K.

addressor: U.W. | To: Max Bloch | April 24, 2016

Dear Mr. Bloch,
I would like to thank you, also on behalf of my sister, my mother and my uncle, for the sound handling of both of our inheritance matters. We could count on you – work and problems were taken care of, which was a great relief to us. We have received the accounting. (…)

Best regards for a warmer late winter.
Yours, U.W.

addressor: R.B. | To: Rainer Tomowiak | March 3, 2016

Good day, Mr. Tomowiak!,
Our unexpected inheritance arrived today! The seven grandchildren, who are mostly college students or high school seniors, will be pleased to receive a check. A luxury cruise for my husband and I is in it; the amount shouldn’t be used on the household.

Thank you for your long search. You are also happy that your inquiries weren’t in vain. Many thanks and continued success in your search for heirs!

Sincerely,
R.B.

addressor: K.Sch. | To: Brigitta Fischer | January 20, 2016

Dear Mrs. Fischer,
As we discussed, everything that arrived here I have forwarded to you by mail.
With my best regards and a huge THANK YOU for all of your work, time and devotion to this sometimes not very simple work.
Sincerely, K.Sch.

addressor: F.B. | To: Willi Marx | December 21, 2015

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen, Dear Mr. Marx,
On December 18, 2015 I was delighted to take your letter out of my mailbox. Good things come to those who wait. The saying really applies to me.
Thanks to your intensive efforts, the estate matter has come to a successful conclusion.
I would sincerely like to thank you and wish you success in the future.
I have another request: Would it be possible for me to receive my family’s family tree? I would be very grateful.
Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and all the best for 2016.
Sincerely B.

addressor: B.K. | To: Dr. Max Bloch | November 25, 2015

Dear Dr. Bloch,
Many thanks for your letter dated November 23, 2015.
I would also like to take this opportunity to thank you for your good work. Perhaps the time will come again that I will use or also recommend your services.
Sincerely B.K.

Sehr geehrter Herr Dr. Bloch,
ich sende Ihnen hiermit die notwendige Fotokopie zur Überweisung meines Erbteils zu. Gleichzeitig möchte ich mich bei Ihnen und Ihrer Gesellschaft für die Bemühungen in unserer Angelegenheit bedanken.
Ihre Gesellschaft war uns bisher nicht bekannt, umso erstaunlicher bewerten wir die umfangreiche und vertrauensvolle Tätigkeit Ihrer GmbH.
Mit freundlichen Grüßen J. W.

addressor: H. K. | To: Dr. Max Bloch, Köln | 23.11.2014

Dear Dr. Bloch,
I would like to thank you for the accounting in the above-named matter and return one copy to you which includes my bank account number. From my childhood, in which I often spent the vacation break in Berlin, I can still remember that P. and L.F. had property in Z., which they could not use or visit because it was located in the Soviet Occupation Zone. To receive an inheritance from it after such a long time is a nice surprise.

Thank you for your efforts.
Sincerely, H.K., May 23, 2014

addressor: V.M. | To: Brigitta Fischer, Berlin | September 2, 2014

Dear Mrs. Fischer,
Now, after the majority of the inheritance has been distributed, I would like to thank you for your professional work. You have coordinated this surely very complicated case very well and have always kept me promptly informed. I am very satisfied with your work and would gladly recommend you.
Best regards, M., September 2, 2014

addressor: I. R. | To: Mr. Tomowiak, Hanover | February 11, 2014

Dear Mr. Tomowiak!
When I received the first letter from GEN, in which it was stated that I had inherited, I could not believe it and was very skeptical. However, thanks to your efforts, I was convinced and came into my rightful inheritance! I would like to thank you and your team for the work you’ve done and wish you much success in the future. I would also like to thank you on behalf of my two sisters.
Sincerely, I. R., February 11, 2014

addressor: M. G. | To: Mrs. Kulp, Hanover | April 3, 2014

Now that everything has come to a close, I would like to thank you with these “greetings from M.” for your efforts and also for your ever nice, friendly and also humorous way of corresponding. Wishing you all the best for the future. Kind regards, M. G., April 3, 2014

Sender: I. U. │ To: Alena Teuber│ July 20, 2020

Dear Mrs. Teuber,
Many thanks for the pleasing news. We didn’t dare to hope that the proceedings would come to such a positive end for me and my co-heirs. We are tremendously happy!
<br/>Again, many thanks for your work, we wish you all the best..
Kind regards,

addressor: Dr. C., Canada |To: Silke Schmidt, Hamburg | December 8, 2011

Liebe Frau Silke Schmidt and staff,
I would like to express my sincere appreciation and gratitude to you, Dr. Mathias Vogel and the entire staff at GEN-Niederlassung Hamburg for your ardent work on the file and estate matter of my late father Hans Ulrich C. over these many many years. lt has been decades since my brother and I were brought from the Vaterland to Canada by our parents. The Germany of that day was ravaged by the years of war in which our grandparents had peri shed and families scattered. Your organization has not only helped in a settlement of our father's estate, but has reconnected us to the homeland of our parents and grandparents-May They Rest in Peace. The passage of time has perhaps covered the pathways of history with snow, but the winds of change have c1eared the pathways and we are reminded of the Iives and people of our predecessors. The settlement of the estate has taken so many years and neither my brother or I expected it to be resolved in our Lifetime. Your arrival to the firm and the due diligence and relentless work of your firm all these years have finally made it possible to reconnect to our past and the lives of our families. As hard as this passage has been, it has enriched the Iives of both my brother in Montreal and I in Ottawa- who have never forgotten the place we were born and our parents and our deep roots in Germany.
And so, Mrs. Schmidt and the staff of GEN
