Our service portfolio includes research, presentation of historical topics to the public, and our archival services.
We are working not only in Germany, but also worldwide.
Here is a brief overview: Facts & Files develops plans for strategic research (to know where to look for), produces research results digital and as databases, checks historical and biographical facts, transcribes documents, edits pictures, and produces oral history interviews.
We are drafting projects designs for History Communication, working as consultants and are organizing events, especially crowdsourcing collecting days. Also, we are archiving various materials, from photos over footage to records and digital files and producing finding aids. We are supporting archives to present their holdings online to the public.
Facts & Files is commissioned by museums, families and lawyers to conduct provenance research on works of arts, books, objects and assets.
The results of our work are presented online, in exhibitions, as a book or in expert reports.
