An STOFFERIS is an experienced historian and founded International Genealogy Services, which is based in France. She was born in Belgium (1976) and studied history at the Catholic University of Leuven specializing in cultural history of the middle ages, modern times, and contemporary history.
Also at that time, she conducted an extensive genealogical research about the origin of the Belgian scientist Joseph PLATEAU (1801-1883). In March 1996, she was successful in bringing together the different branches of the PLATEAU family to a reunion in Ghent. Her frequent visits to PLATEAU’s descendants resulted in direct access to a very large number of sources for the history of this family. Some sources remained unknown, but gave her the opportunity to uncover new scientific and family data.
In 2010, AN STOFFERIS prepared and presented a biographical article on the decoration painter Antoine PLATEAU (1759-1815) :
A. Bergmans & A. Stofferis, un des meilleurs peintres de fleurs de son temps - Biographie d'Antoine Plateau, dans Een belvedère aan de Schelde. Paviljoen De Notelaer in Hingene (1792-1797), Brussels, 2010, p. 557.
In 2004 An STOFFERIS obtained her master's degree in Tourism & Management at the University Antwerp Business School. That same year she moved to France and began working at the Belgian Embassy in Paris. But her passion for history and genealogy was very present. In 2012 she decided to expand her genealogical knowledge by following a course in Historical & Probate Research.
An STOFFERIS is fluent in Dutch (native language), French, English and German. Some or all of these languages may be necessary to fulfill a project, as records were created in different languages, depending on the time and the place.
An STOFFERIS is a member of the Syndicat de généalogistes de France 'SYGENE' (www.sygene.fr ) and of the Association of Professional Genealogists (http://www.apgen.org). An STOFFERIS has become member of 'Interpret Europe' (www.interpret-europe.net).
