Welcome on the englishspeaking page of the „Institute of applied Biography and Family Research Kassel (IBF-Kassel)” in Germany.

The Institute is a scientific research Institution and service for those citicens who are interested in biography and family research.

Many citicens of Hesse left their home in the last 250 Years. Their descendents, who are living in the USA, Canada an other countries, are looking for their roots and want to know more about the origin of their forefathers. As the Mormons of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, cannot make films about parish books in North-Hesse, there only remains research on the spot. The lack of knowlegde of the language an high costs prevent their own research.

The “Institute of applied Biography and Family Research Kassel (IBF-Kassel)” helps you with your research and represents you on the spot. The sphere of activity of the Institute is limited to the administrative district of North-Hesse, which was formerly the states of Electoral-Hesse and the Principality of Waldeck.
