Information About Posting

To help organize things I've made discussion threads for all the regions of Italy. If you know where the people you are researching lived, please post your queries, information, etc. in the appropriate thread. If you don't know where in Italy the people you are researching lived or if they lived in multiple areas, go ahead and post to the Comment Wall below. Also, if you feel your post is urgent or you want it to be viewed by the whole group, post to the Comment Wall.

Please don't spam the Comment Wall or Discussion Forum. If you have multiple posts you would like to share, try and combine them. Also, if you would like to post something in Italian, please add an English translation as not all of us know Italian. Thanks!

Deena,thanks for that info. I'll have to check on getting one. I have been trying to find out information on my greatgrandfather for some time. His name was changed when he came to the states and I don't know what it was before.

I just purchased a book Finding Your Italian Ancestors by Suzanne Russo Adams, AG and it is an excellent resource for anyone beginning their Italian genealogy. The reference materials in the appendices are about a third of the book's pages, and they are full of great info. Highly recommended book for anyone who is serious about researching Italian ancestors!

My husband has the italian line. His great-grandfather Nick Sylvester (Silvestri) b.1888 came here from Castlefrentano, Italy came as a child, returned to Italy and came back as an adult (I believe it was abt 1922). Made his way to Pa to work as a miner. It has been family tradition that his father Nicola or Nicolene killed a man and fled to Austria......

I just don't even know where to start with Italian records. If anyone could point me in the right direction, it would be greatly appreciated.
