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!
Check out this beautiful video that I found on the Visit Sicily Facebook page. This makes me want to hop on a plane right now!
