Format: Paperback
As an experienced Italian genealogist, I welcome this addition to Italian genealogy "how to" books. It is appropriate for beginning researchers, and has enough new information and updates to interest those with experience. Suzanne has included much information on getting organized, accessing sources of information in the United States, and accessing many categories of civil and church records from Italy. Translations of Italian records and tips on Italian handwriting are very helpful, as are sample letters, lists of Italian occupations, terms, dates and numbers, and pertinent web-sites and societies. This book is user-friendly and a great resource for those tracing their Italian family history.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If your ancestors were born in Friuli-Venezia-Guilia, part of the Austro-Hungarian empire at the time of the Resorgiamento of
1860, then there will be no Italian government records. You must go to the Parocchio (spelling), the Catholic church, where the
priests are not required to do anything for you, especially if your request is not in proper Italiano. I am one-quarter Italian,
without any hope of obtaining citizenship without living and working in Italy for 10 years; at 65, I may not live that long.
