The archive hunters
We find what you need.
- Did you know that a French secret service report from 1942 also concealed a travel guide to Berlin? Archives and libraries contain secrets and hidden treasures and we can find these obscure treasures for you.
- Blatt & Bild Archive Research offers a research service for historians, journalists, film makers or anyone with an interest in the two world wars.
- We specialise in the Interwar Period, French Resistance, the German occupation of Europe and the role of women, during the Second World War, but our experienced and dedicated teams are happy to search for whatever it is you need.
- Do you need historic documentation, old film footage or unpublished photographs? We hold an array of unique materials that will give your project credibility. We verify and certify all our results.
- We conduct extensive searches, through an array of files, that may not be obvious sources. We think outside the box, to find buried information.
- Are you looking for biographical information on a particular soldier as part of your family history? We can access a lot of information on British soldiers held as POWs, by the Germans, in France and Germany.
- If you need information about individual German soldiers, we can also access and help you evaluate documents from the Department of Personnel Information, at the Federal Archives in Berlin - formerly known as the Deutsche Dienststelle (WASt).
- If you find the German archiving system at Bundesarchiv, Hauptstaatsarchiv or Landesarchiv an impenetrable thicket, we are your Ariadne's thread. We can unearth the information you need.
- If you need family letters, official files or documents to be transcribed from old German handwriting, we can also do that for you.
We offer you a personal and confidential service, based on your requirements.
All enquiries are treated on an individual basis and with upmost confidentiality.
