Family documents, including birth, marriage, and when available, death records will be researched.

This time period usually goes back to the beginning of civil vital registration records (early 1800s), based on availability of the town hall records. The research will then continue in the local Parish Church Archives. This is a difficult and demanding job that requires reading and translating of Latin and older Italian dialects. Each Parish is different in the amount and quality of information they have saved over the years. The time frames researched vary greatly but usually can go back as far as the Parish records will allow, possibly the mid-1600s.

The overall timeframe goes from the beginning of the local church records, possibly the mid to late 1600s to the end of the 1800s (depending on when your Ancestor was born).

ONSITE IN ITALY:

If you are planning to visit your Ancestral village and you would like help and assistance while onsite, our network of genealogists can take you there. Together you will visit the town hall and the parish church where you will be able to look and touch your family records under the cautious eyes of the civil vital records official or the priest. Next, a visit to the main square to get a true Italian homemade coffee and maybe meet at the bar the local policeman who has your same surname and happens to be the son of your grandfather’s third brother... You will be amazed on how much family information you can share with your newly acquired living relatives, from photographs, to old letters and stories on a table full of delicious homemade Italian specialty food.

If you wish to research your living relatives before your trip to your Ancestral town, you can authorize our LIVING RELATIVES Research Option.
