Danish Professional Genealogist
I am a professional researcher with extensive experience in researching genealogical sources from Denmark. I have researched my own family history for more than twenty-five years and I have been a professional genealogist for eight years.
I have extensive experience with Danish sources regarding emigration from Denmark to the USA.
I am very competent in deciphering old texts, even gothic handwriting from the 17th and 18th centuries.
I always provide precise source references and detailed research notes so the reasoning behind each conclusion is clear.

“With her knowledge of records, sources and handwriting she was able to find several generations that I would have never found and documented them.”

“Lene did some family research for me. She helped me find my cousin still living in Denmark.”
