AAA Research: Testimonial
“The reaction time was unbelievable…”
Here in Germany if you want to get military records, the federal archives are at your service… but only on their schedule and their terms! And in addition to ridiculously high copy fees, they also practically make you sign away your firstborn son with respect to royalty fees if you ever plan to use the materials in a book or other publication. Add to that the endless nonsense of the data protection laws, which prohibit them giving out certain personnel files unless you can prove you are a direct descendant of the person in question, and then again only after another ridiculous set of delays. AAA Research replied to my request within minutes, and within a day I had the order placed, and less than a day later I had the results. I was speechless that it could all happen so quickly, and at a much lower price than the German archives demanded, and with no strings attached!
