The "Alain Eckes's Genealogical Office" has stopped his activities on December 31, 2003.

I wish to thank warmly all the ladies and gentlemen who offered me their trust during more than three years by asking for my help for their research.

My thank also goes to the crews of the Genealogical Center, of the Archives and Libraries, who always welcomed me warmly and friendly, specially the crews of the Centre Départemental d'Histoire des Familles (CDHF) in Guebwiller and of the Archives départementales du Haut-Rhin in Colmar.

All the publications of the Genealogical Office will keep on being available in the CDHF in Guebwiller. An Introducing list of these publications, as well as lists of the mentioned surnames can be found on this site.

Perhaps we'll meet each other soon in some library... or elsewhere!

Genealogically yours
Alain Eckes
