"Mr. Martin Sohn was recommended to me by Mrs. Joyce Gardner from Minnesota. I have been more than happy with his professionalism, courtesy and effectiveness. My ancestor knowledge in and around Stralsund, Greifswald, Wolgast and Anklam has dramatically expanded thanks to him. Not only did he send complete family data including all siblings and digital record photographs, Mr. Sohn also provided me with books and other historical documents in relation with my ancestors, up to the 1600's. I also appreciated his reasonable fees and easy bill settlement using PayPal. In turn, I can but warmly recommend Mr Sohn's invaluable services to anyone searching for his family roots in Northeast Germany."
"I have used Martin’s services to assist me in my genealogy research for many years now, and I do not hesitate to recommend him to others any chance that I get. He is very conscientious and dependable in the work that he does, meaning that you can trust that his response is both accurate and complete. Martin is also very knowledgeable in Pommern history, and is familiar with research at the various archives – Greifswald, Stettin, etc. He does travel into Pommern (Poland) for research there also. He will send you your results via email, in English if you wish, and I believe that his charges are very reasonable. He has twice even acted as our tour guide for genealogy visits to Pomerania – the last being in August of 2007.
Note: Martin lives in Burow, Kreis Demmin (VorPommern). Many of the VorPommern records have not been filmed, but are still available in the local church parishes. Martin has a working relationship with most of the parish Pastors and has research access to these records – many of them going back to the early 1700’s."

"I believe I was customer number one of Martin's services. He helped me find all four of the branches of my family in Kreis Demmin through a lot of hard work and perserverance. With his help, I was able to find links to over 4000 people in the U.S. and Germany. The quality of his work was excellent, and the cost was very reasonable.
I had the opportunity to visit Kreis Demmin in 2001. Martin and I visited the villages where my family lived and he gave me a great understanding of the history of the area. Martin was very hospitable, and he is a very pleasant person to work with.
I have recommended Martin's services to dozens of people and I'm sure that all of them were very pleased with the work that he did for them."
