Danish Professional Genealogist
I am a professional researcher with extensive experience in finding genealogical information from various archives in Denmark. I have researched my own family tree for more than twenty years and I have been a professional for five 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.
“Lene can break through that brick wall that has stopped you from learning about your Danish ancestry.”

“Lene did some family research for me. She helped me find my cousin still living in Denmark.”
— A. V., United States
“Without Lene Dræby Kottal’s wealth of in-depth knowledge about Danish records and her expertise in finding the ones relevant to my ancestors, I would never have been able to trace my Danish origins”
