September 2011 Elaine P., Texas

I am delighted to provide a reference for Michal Razus. He made my trip to Slovakia a resounding success in all aspects--accommodations, travel, touring, and best of all, locating information about my grandfather's actual birthday and discovering possible living relatives.

November 2011 Mazur family, Texas

Michal acted as tour guide, translator and genealogist for us while visiting Slovakia. He did preliminary research, and as a result, we were able to track down key birth and death records, as well as living relatives. He listened to our needs, and adjusted accordingly to deliver an incredible experience for us in Slovakia. He acted as tour guide, identifying sites to visit based on our wants and needs, and even recommended great restaurants for us to visit. He had great English, which was important as we went into very small towns of less than 150 people in remote mountain areas to track down relatives.
