Our Values

As a provider of genealogical services, ManyRoads believes it is important that our readers understand our values.  After all if you thinking of entrusting someone with your family history shouldn’t you know them ‘a bit’ first?  As is stated on the Internet Genealogical Society (IIGS) web site and their April 1999 Newsletter article by Barbara A. Brown, Restoring Ethics to Genealogy

To be a Responsible Genealogist is to be honorable, fair, and truthful, to show respect for your ancestors by presenting a true and complete picture of their existence, to be fair to your fellow genealogists by acknowledging their contributions to your research, and to be relentless in your pursuit of factual data and in the search for the truth.

Briefly here are our core business values:

  • We will treat you and your family information with the utmost care and discretion.
  • Our partnerships with clients and friends are built on the foundation of honesty, integrity, and care.
  • Our work is thorough and professional.
  • We are tenacious; we do not easily give up.
  • Our genealogical exploration efforts employ innovation, understanding, and empathy.
  • We will neither judge nor be judgmental but rather truthful and honest.
  • The past is immutable; we will not reinvent, hide, or gloss over acts that occurred.
  • We gladly share credit and provide attribution.

In addition to the above, we also subscribe to the Standards and Guidelines recommended by the National Genealogical Society.  They are listed below:

    Wow, what a great website!! I saw your posting on Prussia-Roots and clicked on your link in your signature. I have only had a few minutes to look around, but I will be back – you have so much information! Thank you! I have only begun my research but know that many family members came from the Prussia area, including one grandma who was Kashub. I know that many settled in the Detroit Area and I came from there and will be moving back there next month, so if there are any documents/gravesites you need, please let me know. I’d be happy to help! My pedigree surnames include: Frontczak, Owczarek, Fuerst, Wrosch, Endert, Langa, Tomaszewski, Gawski/Gawsk, Stefanski, Kowalski, Ksiazkiewicz, Mrozowski, and Sobieski – that’s as far as I’ve gotten!

    Hi Deborah. Thank you! It looks like your family ‘mingled’ well in old Prussia. btw. there is quite a bit going on with the Kashub folks these days, based upon some of what I have read. Enjoy!
