Dear Nadia, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR RESEARCH INTO MY GRITSEVSKY FAMILY IN KAMENKA/CHIGIRIN!  All of these names are familiar to me and now I can construct a family tree back to the 1700s. I am so grateful for your work.  Kamenka/Kamienka appears now to be the origin of the family, if not in Gritsev. I will be eternally grateful to you. All the best, David Nelson

Dear Nadia Lipes, Thank you very much for your expertise and prompt service. Your search at the Kiev Archives provided me with a lot of information about my family. I’m so excited to be able to go back three more generations! I’m also hoping to connect different families based on the 1897 Census records you provided me.   I’m looking forward to keep using your service for my continued research. Best regards, Sylvia Walowitz

I was born in Paris, France, just before the Holocaust, and I was six year old when my parents died in Auschwitz. I only knew my mother was from Poland and my father from Russia. Over the years I managed to pull some information that my mother was born in Brody, Galicia and father - in Feodosiya, Crimea. Today both are part of Ukraine.
For several years I cherished the idea to see where my roots, but it was not easy. This year I decided that it is impossible now to postpone this trip because of my age and my physical condition. Tourism companies do not reach the standard in these areas, especially as they are very far apart, so I decided to buy myself a private tour derived by measurements - i.e., escort all the way, considering the limitations. One travel agency referred me to Mrs. Nadia Lipes - the guide who lives in Kiev. We started building the program, including costs and possibilities of travel. Nadia created a very professional program and I understood that I could trust her fully. We were in contact via SKYPE from that time every day.
 I came to Kiev one day before the Rosh-a-Shana and the next evening I was expecting a gala dinner at a local synagogue. We rented apartments equipped with all required, and low cost hotels, mostly in city centers. I got all the places I wanted and other interesting places agreed beforehand. On sites that contain lots of steps I had to give up willingly because of difficulties in walking. The program was usually not too busy and I had a lot of time to rest. In the evenings you could do short trips, dinners in unique restaurants (half the price than in Israel), and I also saw a ballet at the Opera on my earlier request.
 Trips were made by train overnight (12 hours each) from Kiev to Lvov, from Lvov to Odessa and from Odessa to the center of Crimea. Other trips were in a rented car with driver and local guide. I had never dragged my suitcase. Nadia accompanied me till boarding to plane, she was courteous, and creative. I was delighted to have her accomplished the task. You can never find 100% service, but all-in-all it was fine!

Thank you very much for helping to find the graves of my great-grandparents! For our family it was very important, because we believed that a Jewish cemetery in the Pyatka village completely destroyed. But miraculously survived the stones, and now we can not only venerate the memory of our ancestors, but also know their date of birth and death.

I'm just starting to learn the history of the family. On the Internet a lot of information, which is certainly very useful. But ... once you start to study it – it is no time to cover everything , and more than once I was interrupting searches for months, it seemed all very complicated, and sometimes even came the thought that genealogy - is a complex science , which can overpower only historians . On the advice of friends, I turned to Nadia . We immediately began to communicate in the most familiar to me format - via Skype . She helped me organize all the data that I have told her about my family, gave good advice and now we have moved to archival searches. Since I live in Russia, to search for I had no chance . My surprise and joy knew no bounds when Nadia sent photos of the wedding of my records and grandparents , the birth of my father ... But all this was almost 100 years ago ! It is not the comparable emotions!  In the spring, I plan to come to Ukraine to visit with family at Uman, where my ancestors lived, and replenish our family photo archive with new pictures . My family and I express Nadia and her husband enormous gratitude ! Regards,
Lev Borisovich, Moscow
