Italian Genealogy: Discovering Your Ancestral Records in Italy and in the USA

Date 10.04.2017

Millions of Americans identify themselves as having Italian ancestry. If you’re one of them, this workshop might be of interest to you! It offers a hands-on approach to researching documents relevant to families that emigrated from Southern Italy to the U.S.

The two-day workshop by Bill Cellini, Jr., a genealogy researcher who has 25 years of experience working with, translating, and interpreting Italian genealogical vital records in the United States and in Italy, provides participants the opportunity to learn valuable research techniques specific to Italian genealogy to enhance their genealogical skills. The workshop offers novice and intermediate genealogists practical methods of research to utilize immigration records, and government and church documents to establish travel patterns, hometowns, and personal records. No knowledge of Italian is needed.
