Ms Karin Jauch
Professional Genealogist, qualified Geographer, individual investigations on basis of genealogical data.
A child of Baden and Wuerttemberg: her mother is from south Black Forest (Baden) and her father is a Swabian from Wuerttemberg. With this heritage she combines a special interest in local studies and history. Researches into her personal genealogy has increased her awareness not only in collecting facts and figures, but also in developing a feeling for ones own roots. This awareness has been especially intensive when experienced at original places and sources.
