Can I hire a researcher from the SGS?
We receive many requests if we as a society can do research. As we have stated many times on the forums and other subsequent pages the society does not do hired research. The main reasons for this are that we are not a commercial organization, nor do we have the resources for this. As a society we seek to empower people to do their own research. The logic behind this is that people become more aware of their cultural heritage and it claims a sense of ownership. Other reasons for not doing research are that citizens of Serbia are free to access the archives whenever they want. However, for foreigners there are restrictions. One must first obtain permission of the Serbian Government before one can access the archives.
The SGS has many members, of which many help each other on a voluntary basis. We encourage this as it fortifies the genealogical community. However, it is perfectly allowed for SGS members or people registered as users on this site offer paid services. Please note that SGS members are expected to adhere Serbian Law and the society’s statutes. By not doing so this may lead to a cancellation of ones membership. The SGS as an organization cannot be held responsible for any disputes.
Can you do research for me?
No, we do not do research for people. We enable people to do research.
I changed my email address but forgot to change it in my Rodoslovlje account. Can you change it for me?
Unless you are a SGS member, and unless you have filled in your address info and other contact information that we can use to verify that you really are you say you are the answer is “no”.
My name is e.g. Branković, can I use the coat of arms of that medieval family?
The answer is a simple “no”. None of the medieval nobility have direct male heirs that remained armigerous until today. A coat of arms is not tied to someone’s surname.
