Genealogy Decuyper has been collaborating with members of the legal profession since 1942. We can, indisputably, pride ourselves on being the oldest partner of solicitors and lawyers in probate research, and, no doubt, the most renowned one.
A death certificate is often our only starting point, and our success rate approximates 97%.
We organize our investigation according to the tasks we have been given and the type of information we process: we consult our own library of internal archives (obituaries, the Belgian Law Gazette, completed estates and various archives); we interrogate town councils, offices of law courts and other administrations (e.g. tax); we deal with their answers and consult the registers in the various archives of town councils and the State.
We have also a unique information technology infrastructure which enables us to offer a reliable solution to every probate research problem at reasonable costs.
