What’s New at Sicilian Family Tree?

I have been thoroughly enjoying the videos posted by Alfred and Eszter of You, Me and Sicily. They make fantastic videos about the towns, food, festivals and history of Sicily. Every one that I watch makes me want to hop on a plane and go there as fast as I can. And they are now hosting tours of Sicily too! Be sure to check it out and “like” their Facebook page too! Here is a sampling:

How and Where to Begin Researching?

I get many emails from people who are just starting their quest for their Italian or Sicilian family heritage. For those of you just starting out, I suggest you visit the Research Links page. There you will find loads of information about how and where to start. One item I consider a MUST-HAVE for anyone who is researching their Italian or Sicilian heritage is the book called A Genealogists Guide to Discovering Your Italian Ancestors: How to Find and Record Your Unique Heritage, by Lynn Nelson. It’s only about $15 from Amazon.com and it is well worth every cent. Good luck!

Thank you to Maddalena Cassata DeLorenzo, Tom Russo and Caroline Ilardo Jaworski for the pictures they have contributed for use on this site!
