I am a professional historian with an academic background. I have many
years of experience in Public Record Offices, local, private, and church
archives in Germany and Austria. For years I have been working in the
field of family history. The published literature shows that I am not
only familiar with genealogical research but as well with other subjects
during Early Modern German History (16th to 19th century).

Comments of my clients:
I had been researching my Family Tree for over 10 years and always
ran into a brick wall beyond 1840. Then I came across Volker Jarren's
name in a Family Tree magazine. I emailed him and received an immediate
response. We discussed a plan and costs. I sent him what information
I had and he felt he could find more answers in Berlin archives. He
was able to go back 2 more generations to the 1770's. I feel Volker
is trustworthy, professional and knowledgeable. I would recommend him
to anyone searching for lost relatives.
M. Beneke, U.S.A., November 16, 2016
Dear Dr. Jarren, I want to thank you for the excellent research you
have done on my father's side of my family. Since my grandparents and
my father immigrated from Germany to the United States in the 1920's,
the majority of my genealogy could not have been found without your
help. Your timely responses to my e-mails, the clear information on
prices, and the professional research results have made me a very satisfied
customer. If I decided on finding further results, I will be in touch
with you. Thank you for everything.
Ellene Stammler, U.S.A., October 3, 2016
Dear Dr. Jarren, Charles and I are most appreciative of the work that
you have done for us. For many years now, I have been researching our
family trees. Fortunately for me, a number of my ancestors emigrated
from parts of Germany where records have been microfilmed. However,
tracking Charles' family has been more difficult, and after visiting
your web site, we decided it was time to get professional help. From
our very first e-mail to you, we were impressed with your professionalism.
You quickly replied and helped us to narrow down our focus to a reasonable
and cost effective approach. You then gave us an estimate for the research
based on this focus and the copies of documents that we sent. The estimate
that you gave us along with your research approach was detailed, and
gave us confidence that you would thoroughly research every available
resource and give us a comprehensive report on what you found. This
you did. And, we especially appreciate the CD of documents that you
sent. As we look at those records completely written in old German script,
we truly appreciate the time and effort that you spent on researching
the Doerge family. We now know so much more about my husband's Doerge
family. Thank you so much for giving my husband and our children their
legacy. In the future, as we continue researching my husband's family,
we will certainly be asking you to do more research for us.
Sincerely, Linda and Charles Doerge, U.S.A., May 3, 2016
Dear Dr. Volker Jarren, I highly recommend Dr. Jarren Volker. I would
like to thank Dr. Volker Jarren for all the research done for me and
the Fryberger family. Your research with the archives in Switzerland
on the family was easy for me to understand. If I want more research
done I would return to Dr. Volker Jarren. Thank you for a job well done.
Jean Fryberger, Pennsylvania, U.S.A., February 21, 2016
Dr. Jarren, Thank you for your German genealogical services on my past
and recent research projects. Your expertise in reading old German script
is outstanding. It is also greatly enhanced by your additional explanations
about the historic and cultural context of the terms in the documents
and the meaning of certain words in the text. I would highly recommend
Joan Schacht, St. Louis Missouri; U.S.A., February 17, 2016
I found Dr. Jarren's ad in Family Tree Magazine. After looking at his
web site, I started communications by email. My mother and grandmother
immigrated from Germany but they never talked about Germany. My input
to the research project was limited to information I found in US citizenship
documents and obituaries. Dr. Jarren responded to emails quickly and
provided excellent guidance on how to proceed with the research. His
research results far exceeded my expectations. He traced my maternal
grandfather's line (Kurz) to 1677 in Steinach. I would highly recommend
Kurt Rife, New Market, IA, U.S.A., December 22, 2015
Dear Volker, I would like to thank you for wonderful research you did
on my behalf. I now have the missing information on the Glück family
from Konradsreuth. I would never have been able to get this information
myself. Not only would I have to travel from California to Germany,
I don't read or speak German. I was amazed at how much information you
were able to acquire in just one day at the Archives. The report and
family tree you provided was concise and easy to read. Your expertise
in genealogical research and familiarity with the Archives is an asset
to anyone requiring research of their German roots. nThank you again
for a job well done!
Sandy Schaffner California, U.S.A., August 16, 2015
I started this journey after spending a few years trying to search
for my German ancestors on my own. Needless to say, my Search wasn't
very successful. I quite by accident found Dr. Volker Jarren's name
in a magazine on ancestry. I so wanted to reach out to him but so fearful
of what results he would give me. By that I mean I didn't want to be
taken advantage of and find myself with no new information and being
asked for more and more money to continue or complete the project. I
was more than amazed when Dr. Jarren returned my e-mail so quickly and
a plan was put together. Still being the pessimist I held my breath
as he started out. Much to my surprise he contacted me after his first
day and gave me an overview of his findings. We discussed what to do
with what we knew and I so appreciated his valuable input as to what
would give me the most for my money. I am now enjoying the copies of
birth, marriage, and death records. I'm considering a search on other
family ancestors and the most difficult decision with my last search
will now be the easiest. Dr Volker Jarren will no doubt be at the helm!!
Thanks for the awesome gift I'll be able to give myself and more importantly,
Becky Vasey, Des Moines, Iowa, U.S.A., August 11, 2015
Dr. Jarren, The report is excellent! Thank you! The explanation of
the Heuerling system along with the economic and social changes of that
era helps put things into perspective. I was not able to gain this perspective
on my own previously. The photos of the Heuerling House Rohe and the
churches were excellent! I am very pleased with your report.
Steve Rohe, Pennsylvania, U.S.A., April 3, 2015
Dr. Jarren came recommended by someone I had hired to translated a
few old family documents and photos. After looking over Dr. Jarren's
web site, and the high recommendation that was given, we began communications
with Dr. Jarren. As promised on the web site, he reviews your case and
gives you a very clear and precise estimate of cost. He was up front
about the extra charges if you are wanting copies of birth, death, etc.
records. There were no hidden fees or costs. Our family had only a baptismal
record and a few old photos, with first names on them, to go on, and
he was able to locate relatives back to the 1600's. That is not the
extent of his research. He was able to include births, deaths, marriage
dates and places, but not only that, he was able to find some addresses
of residences and what type of labor they made a living at. During this
process, he was in regular communication with us to give us updates,
clarify any questions, or concerns. His research has far exceeded our
expectations. His work was very through, and the report was easy to
follow. The entire process was done in a timely manner, and the initial
report was sent quickly, via email. We highly recommend his services.
Marcie Hassen, Kansas City, Missouri, U.S.A., March 1, 2015
Dr. Jarren, Thank you so much for your timely, professional assistance
in helping us to learn more about the immediate family of my grandfather
Georg August Zwick who was born in Burgheim bei Lahr, Germany, in 1863.
We sent you an email last November with a combination of family oral
history along with some genealogical research we had attempted ourselves.
We soon understood that we needed the help of a professional. Your responses
were prompt, and your research at the Karlsruhe Archive was thorough.
We are delighted that we had this opportunity to work with you and now
believe we have a much better sense of my grandfather's family before
he emigrated to the United States before 1900 and settled in New York,
then Connecticut. Sincerely,
Charles J. Zwick, Coral Gables, Florida, U:S.A:, January 27, 2015
In quick order, Dr. Jarren has provided many missing links in my German
family tree. Dr. Jarren is very attentive, responsive, and is able to
accurately scope the work and determine the cost. I have been delighted
with his work so far and look forward to continuing the work of discovery
with his expert guidance.
R. Adler, Gurnee, IL U.S.A., January 21, 2015
Dr. Jarren has exceeded my expectations regarding the long lost history
of my German ancestors. I had attempted for 19 years to discover the
family origins past my great-grandfather who immigrated to the U.S.
He was able to link rapidly back 5 generations despite the fact that
I had given him some incorrect information on my great grandfather's
point of origin in Germany as well possessing a very common last name.
I also appreciate that he is very precise with respect to costs and
absolutely met the schedule he committed to. To my amazement, when he
provided the pedigree, he also included a history lesson on the cultures
of that period Germany, so that I might better understand the environment
they lived and worked in. To that end, I now know them far past simply
the birth and death dates on a family tree. I shall always be grateful
and without hesitation recommend his most professional services.
Saundra Cope, Everett, Washington, U.S.A., January 25, 2014
I couldn't be happier with the professional research results. I contacted
you be e-mail, and had no ideal of the villages names the Steck's &
Ernst's were from. In a very short time you had found the villages,
and let me know research was possible. Every step of the process was
easy & very thorough. German research is difficult & very time
consuming on your own. So to anyone worried about hiring you, I can
say, they have absolutely nothing to worry about. And will be very rewarded
with your efforts. Your research has meet a great deal to me & my
family. I plan on more early this coming year. So thank you from the
bottom of my heart.
Peggy Kilpatrick Galesburg, Illinois, U.S.A., December 11, 2013
I highly recommend Dr. Volker Jarren as a professional genealogical
researcher. I started researching my family history in Germany and in
a short time realized I needed the help of a professional. Even though
I was researching an uncommon name (Borzel) I was having a hard time
with the language and how archives are stored. I also had a hard time
narrowing down a workable search. I found Dr. Volker Jarren online and
decided to hire him because he also had a history background which was
important to me. He has exceeded my expectations. He is very friendly,
professional and prompt. He was able to help me narrow down a good research
plan and then proceeded with the research in an affordable manner. Areas
that could be researched by microfilm were done at home or near his
home but he goes beyond by travelling to the small town church archives
and cemeteries, searching the books, taking photos of entries (my favourite
part) and houses that were inhabited by ancestors, the churches they
attended, cemeteries and surrounding area. He also hired the necessary
archivists when it made better use of time for them to provide the information.
He was able to take my paternal line back to 1675 in Bavaria, Germany.
His thorough reports, lineages, photos and documents were sent both
through email and regular mail. I now have comprehensive documentation
on my family with many options to continue with my maternal lineage.
His information was presented at a family reunion in July of 2013 and
my family is very excited and grateful for all his help.
Ellen Gaboury Paradise Hill, Saskatchewan, Canada, October 1, 2013
Good morning Dr. Jarren, Your research information is fantastic for
my genealogical records! You provided documented historical information
on two more generations of names on my Sandmann family name in Germany
in the 1600 - 1700's. I especially like the way you organized and listed
the order of the names and related dates. The footnotes contribute to
the research and are helpful for my work. It will take time to add it
to my genealogical records. I look forward to seeing the record copies
of the email information you sent. Perhaps there is further work to
be pursued. Thanks for the great work. I am very satisfied with your
Best Regards, Harold Sentman
H. Sentman, Missouri, U.S.A., August 19, 2013
I found out about Dr. Jarren through Family Tree Magazine and consider
myself fortunate to have contacted him for research on my maternal ancestors
in Austria and Germany. His research resulted in tracing my ancestry
back to the 1600s. His impressive historical knowledge was invaluable
in gaining some understanding of my ancestor's lives before they left
for the United States. All questions that I asked Dr. Jarren were answered
promptly. I would highly recommend Dr. Jarren to anyone who is thinking
about their family research in Germany or Austria.
Cyril J Ernest, Lexington, KY, U.S.A., May 13, 2013
I highly recommend Dr. Jarren to anyone interested in pursuing research
on their German ancestors. The entire process, from initial contact,
to the final report of the results, was very smooth. The amount of information
that Dr. Jarren was able to gather on my ancestors in a brief amount
of time is incredible! Dr. Jarren made the process very easy, quickly
responding to any questions and keeping me completely informed on a
regular basis during the entire project. Dr. Jarren proved to be quite
a cost effective resource for obtaining information on my German ancestors.
The results, which were highly detailed and well documented, were much
more than I was hoping for. I am quite comfortable in recommending Dr.
Jarren to anyone interested in researching their German ancestors.
Rob Pillmeier, MD, U.S.A., April 6, 2013.
Hello Dr. Jarren,
This is awesome work, Dr. Jarren! I can't thank you enough for the work
so far. It's thorough, extensive and much more than I had hoped to gather.
I really appreciate how quick and responsive you are to all my questions.
I had been hesitant about hiring someone halfway around the world, but
you've made this experience most enjoyable and worthwhile. I look forward
to working with you to fill in many gaps in the family trees for both
me and my wife.
Don Bowman, Landenberg, PA, U.S.A., March 12, 2013.
Dr. Jarren, I am very satisfied with your work. You gave me the information
that I requested in a form that can be used to extend my family line
in the greater Waldkirch area.
Thomas F. Stander, Ohio, U.S.A., March 12, 2013.
My first contact with Dr. Jarren was by email. I shared my purpose
for contacting him and asked for assistance in finding information on
my paternal side of the Maurer family in Germany. I shared my American
search information on my great, great grandfather who came to America
in 1846. He graciously used this information to do some initial inquiries
about whether a search would be successful. His inquiries indicated
that he could find information about my ancestors. I truly appreciated
this up-front approach to searching for my ancestors. All subsequent
communications with Dr. Jarren were conducted by email. His promptness
in answering these emails garnered my confidence in his abilities. His
second email to me inquired about my objectives for this search. What
did I want to get from his search? As we discussed back and forth, my
objectives were narrowed down so a successful search could be implemented.
We agreed that he would conduct the search and discussed the monetary
cost of such research. He outlined what expenses would be incurred for
a three day search and what subsequent expenses would be incurred in
the writing of the report. I appreciated this transparency in our business
transactions. After business affairs were taken care of, he indicated
when he would undertake the search and indicated what his search strategy
would be. We remained in contact during the actual search. He kept me
appraised of his progress and provided me options ( continue, discontinue,
or change the focus of the search ) based on what he was finding. I
really appreciated his candid appraisal of how well his search was progressing.
I was truly amazed at the depth and breadth of information he presented
to me in his report. It included a family tree, birth, marriage, and
death information on each ancestor and documentation of where this information
came from; whether civic or church records in Germany. In fact, I was
stunned with this meticulous documentation of his findings. I could
not believe that he had collected all this information in just three
days. I can honestly attest that I did indeed receive full value from
my monetary investment. Dr. Jarren is certainly an outstanding German
genealogist and research. I would have no qualms in engaging him again
and would recommend his services to others searching for German ancestors.
Steve Maurer, West Des Moines, Iowa, U.S,A,, January 5, 2013
Dr. Jarren , Thank you very much for all of your hard work . It is
greatly appreciated as I enjoy finding out more about my German relatives.
R. Stearns, Florida, U.S.A., June 3, 2012.
I am still going over the pedigree chart you sent me, and I can really
appreciate the time and effort that you spent researching my "Fieseler"
line. Your work was meticulous, and your references and accompanying
explanations were very enlightening. I am totally satisfied with your
G. Fieseher, Collegeville, PA, U.S.A., May 27, 2012.
Dear Dr. Jarren,
I can't be more pleased with the research you did on my ancestors, the
Luther family of Möhra. Starting with my great grandfather, you
made the generations flow into each other and the names became real
people. I love the fact that my great great grandfather was a "singer
in the church chorus" and how women were called "virgins"
at their first marriage. It's obvious that you are not only a first
rate historian and researcher, but a man who truly wants to help people
find "their people." Your work is so well documented and clear.
Thank you. I highly recommend you to others who like me, want to know
about where they came from! Sincerely,
Janice Brazil, Texas, U.S:A., May 13, 2012.
Thank you for the very timely report. I very much appreciate the detail
of the report about my ancestor family. You confirmed some the items
which I had, corrected some of my information, and then added quite
a lot to our knowledge of this family with new information. You found
records which added two generations to the one side of the family and
you clarified for us the details and correct name of our direct ancestor.
I am totally satisfied with the report and look forward to receiving
in the mail the copies of the records.
Jim Lee, Decatur, Georgia U.S.A., April 29, 2012.
Dear Volker, Thank you for your outstanding genealogical research on
my behalf. You are truly the most respectful professional I have ever
dealt with. I appreciate your immediate responses to my e-mails as well
as your patience with my developing requests. Above all I value your
honesty. Your fee quotes were concise and accurate, your research guidance
proved spot-on. I look forward to continued success on our next project!
Alan Koshak, Harrisonville, MO, U.S.A., April 17, 2012
Dr. Jarren is an extraordinary genealogist and fulfilled all my expectations
in his research. The report I received on the Kleopfer family included
many facts that I did not expect and included photos of the documents.
Some of them were very hard to read and he did a masterful job in interpreting
them. He was also very responsive to my questions and interests and
I have learned many new facts about Germany. I did not know that there
were such wonderful church records in Germany even listing the occupations
of the people listed. It is all an immense treasure of information that
my family will enjoy for generations. I highly recommend Dr. Jarren
to anyone interested in German genealogy.
Charla Kleopfer Columbia, Missouri, U.S.A., April 15, 2012.
Dr. Jarren was very helpful, thorough and most importantly, organized.
Even when I felt disorganized or unsure, he graciously kept things on
track and on schedule. He was able to provide detailed information that
we would never have been able to find on our own, and he did it very
quickly. We look forward to having him show us around the area on an
upcoming trip - and we would highly recommend him to other Americans
looking for details on their German ancestry.
Melanie Suggs, Georgia, U.S.A., February 22, 2012.
Dear Volker: I wanted to let you know how thrilled I am with your report
of the results you were able to obtain during your four day trip to
Berlin!! It was unfortunate that the two male lines only resulted in
a couple of generations; however, the female lines you were able to
track back to the beginning of 1700, a whole four more generations!
I can't wait to add your research to my family history (giving you total
credit in my sources, of course)!! Also the concise report although
nearly eight pages long is very easy to follow. Yes, I am very satisfied
with the information you were able to gather in such a short time frame!!
Thank you so very much!! I am, as I said, just thrilled with the results!!
Linda J. Hauley, Ontario, Canada, November 25, 2011
Dear Dr. Jarren, Thank you for this report. It is well done and I am
impressed as with your previous work for me! You are very quick, very
professional and a reliable resource for us who crave historical and
genealogical knowledge. Thank you again!
Eric Uhden, Maryland, U.S.A., October 18,2011
Dear Volker, Thank you for your wonderful report on the ancestors of
my Great Great Grandfather, Georg Friedrich Baumbach. You found more
information than I could ever have expected. Your added descriptions
of the information which can be inferred from the pure data give additional
"life" to the chain of people who preceded me. Your well organized
documents and the careful documentation of your sources give the highest
possible value to the information and are a fine example of your creditability
in the field of genealogy research. I certainly expect to call upon
you again for additional work.
Patty and Barney Deden, Nebraska, U.S.A., October 1, 2011
To Anyone Interested in Their Family Ancestors in Germany, I HIGHLY
recommend Dr. Volker Jarren for research of any of your ancestors who
were born and lived in Germany. My cousin and I were interested in genealogical
research regarding our third great grandparents. Dr. Jarren found wonderful
records going clear back to our 5th great grandparents and also did
research regarding the village where they had lived. We gave him what
limited information we had and had limited expectations to find anything
at all. Dr. Jarren astonished us with a highly detailed report on our
family history. He knew which archive would have the most complete information,
and he provided recommendations on how his time could be used most efficiently.
Dr. Jarren conducted thorough research and was able to interpret old,
handwritten documents in a script that few people can read today. He
provided us a complete report on our family history in fluent English,
and also provided us copies of some of the original archived documents,
especially ones we had requested. Dr. Jarren is a fantastic and valuable
resource in researching your family history.
Loretta Taylor of Boise, Idaho, U.S.A., September 17, 2011
Dr. Volker Jarren recently completed a search for my German ancestors
in the Stuttgart area. He provided a quotation of the project cost in
advance and did not start the search until I agreed with the scope and
the cost of the proposed project. He responded quickly to my e-mails
and was very responsive to my requests. Dr. Jarren provided excellent
suggestions for researching archives that I was unaware of and his research
was completed quickly and for the agreed upon cost. Dr. Jarren has an
excellent command of the English language and we had no problem communicating.
He applied no undue pressure to do anything that I didn't feel important.
I was very satisfied with the results of his research and I would definitely
use his expertise again.
Chester Stanley Wauconda, Illinois, U.S.A., August 22, 2011
Dear Dr. Jarren, Please add my name to your impressive list of VERY
satisfied clients and please feel free to use my name as a reference
for genealogy research. After the research that you have done on my
behalf, I consider you to be a very competent and trustworthy researcher.
I was interested in trying to find information on my great-great-great
grandfather and his parents and siblings and you found everything I
asked for, plus you even found information clear back to my 5th great
grandfather. I am so grateful for all the wonderful information you
found on my behalf. I was amazed at how much you were able to find when
you only had a name, the place and approximate year of birth. The work
you have done has exceeded my expectations and I am thrilled with your
services. I strongly recommend to anyone searching for their German
family history to use the services of Dr. Volker Jarren. He is an invaluable
resource in researching one's family history. I would classify Dr. Jarren
as a master genealogist who is very professional in every sense of the
word. I especially appreciated his almost immediate response to all
my emails pertaining to questions I had. His fees are very reasonable.
I am hoping to work with him again very soon on more of my German family
history. Dr. Jarren is the only individual I would consider for conducting
Loretta Taylor, Boise, Idaho U.S.A., June 12, 2011
Dr. Volker Jarren is a master genealogist and a renowned historian
who has provided me with a wealth of information on my German ancestry.
Without his help, this work would have been an impossible mission. Very
little was known of my great grandfather's family history before he
immigrated to America from Germany. He died at an early age, leaving
behind a wife and three small children. His widow, remarried within
a year and the link to my great grandfather's place of birth and family
tree was lost with time. Through Dr. Jarren's in-depth research into
the archives of church and public records in Osnabrueck, he was able
to pinpoint the birth village of my great grandfather and trace the
paternal and maternal lineage back to 1662. His highly detailed report
was very organized and most comprehensive with reference citations on
his archive findings. He also provided a background of local German
history and culture existing at that time. Dr. Jarren took pictures
of the village Glandorf, the old home where my forefathers lived, so
long ago and the ancient church where many of my ancestors were baptized
and married. I highly recommend Dr. Jarren's professional services for
anyone searching for their German roots. My gratitude is beyond words.
A. O'Neill, Charleston, S.C. U.S.A., May 10, 2011
Dear Dr. Jarren, I am very excited to see the progress that you were
able to make on the Göttmann family, taking the main paternal line
as far as possible. This information far exceeds my previous expectations
and I could not be more pleased with your findings and your expert commentary.
Henry Patton Covington, GA USA, March 27,2011
Dear Dr. Volker Jarren,
Some days ago I received your results from the research you did on my
father's family in the Stadthagen area of Germany. A few years ago my
sister and I spent 10 days in the area and were unable to find much
information, due to both language and opening hours of different places
we hoped to find information. Although we enjoyed our time in the area
I now feel that we should have used your services before making the
trip. I am amazed at the information you found in only three days. I
know it will take me that long to digest all that you sent. Also your
report was very thorough, you included basic information that a Canadian
would not understand about the systems and life of the times you were
researching. I would highly recommend your services to anyone wanting
to find their roots in Germany. Thank you.
Mhairi Patterson (nee Hasse) Canada, February 21, 2011
Dear Dr. Jarren,
I strongly recommend Dr. Volker Jarren for your family history research.
Our family was interested in genealogical research going back to the
16th century, and we had limited expectations to find anything at all.
Dr. Jarren astonished us with a highly detailed report on our family
history over four centuries. He knew which archive would have the most
complete information, and he provided recommendations on how his time
could be used most efficiently. Dr. Jarren conducted thorough research
and was able to interpret old, handwritten documents in a script that
few people can read today. He provided us a complete report on our family
history in fluent English, and also provided us copies of the original
archived documents. Dr. Jarren is an invaluable resource in researching
your family history.
