Genealogy in Berlin: Marc Jarzebowski on a visit at the Ostwald family for shooting videos on the escape from East Prussia

Welcome to DMJ

Genealogy and History

I have been researching topics of all kinds in genealogy and history for over fifteen years, assisting people worldwide in search of their roots in Germany or in formerly German-settled lands, together with my partners. One of the focal points here is the history of Jewish families.

Our application of scientific standards combined with investigative instincts has often proved helpful, even if it does not apparently lead further. You can find more information about our work here.

Taking the notion that the past in many ways shapes our present, our concern is the broad spectrum of the culture of commemoration, such as the production of eye witness accounts videos. All our videos can also be found on our Youtube channel.

Family History

Family history is more than a family tree on the wall above the sofa; family history is life.

Family history can help to make one’s own life more knowledgeable and aware.

Family history can heal, when old trauma and taboos come to light, closing the gaps in the story.

Family history can be entertaining and educational, because the stories of others always in some way interact with our own.
