Format: Paperback
I've been using this book for several years along with Trafford Cole's book about Italian records. Without these two books, I would not have had nearly as much success extracting information from reels of difficult-to-read records on microfilm. They are especially helpful dissecting the different types of records and the distinctive handwriting. There's tons of other indispensable information you'll need to know when embarking on any serious study of your Italian ancestors.

Format: Paperback
This book is a gold nugget in the form of countless bits of information for anyone searching for their Italian roots. I have been using software to look for my ancestors and was having no luck until I read about women traveling without their husbands traveling under their maiden names. Low and behold I found the passenger list with my great-grandmother traveling with my grandmother from their 1916 trip from Italy to the US! Thank you!

This book is very informative about the history of the immigrations of Italians. The how to read Italian records alone is worth the price of this book. I am going to suggest this book to my genealogy class.

Definitely a great book to have. Just started researching some Italian lines in Italy's vital records, and the book was invaluable for assisting me in understanding what I was looking at. Is it the best book to have? I don't know, but it certainly has been an asset as I start off on this part of my journey.

Coming into the world of genealogy as an Italian neophyte this book is a God send. What would probably have taken me years to discover and address has been accomplished in less that a week. If you have an Italian heritage that you really want to discover you could not find a better guide - period!
