Genealogy Decuyper is the oldest and most important service company for probate genealogy and heirs search in Belgium.
The business was started back in 1942 by Jean VOSSAERT. It possesses an unequalled in-house library with vast collections of research data: obituaries, official publications and a database with a collection of all cases which we have successfully dealt with until now: this comprises thousands of different estates in Belgium and abroad.
