Know More about this tour

Where can you start your Italian genealogy adventure?
Simple chatting with elder relatives gives you much information to (re)construct your family history. In this way you can begin finding out names, occupations and other biographies. Contacting the relatives, especially the elderly, is a great help on your research. Soon you will be able to create a so-called family tree. If you are lucky you can begin to collect documents from the town your ancestors were from, like postcards, old pictures and more. At that point you can begin your search on the names you got and get information, trying to know more and more about them.

Depending on how far back you are trying to go, it may be difficult and take some time. It’s obviously that there is no better place to search than where your ancestors lived. In this way you will mix your interest on history and the pleasure of travels in your real homeland.And it could be a nice game to play with your kids: teaching them thankfulness to the ancestors, who built yesterday the life they are living today. Having the background on where your origin came from is like completing the missing piece of yourself.

Discover your Italian Family History
Between 1860 and 1970, more Italians have migrated to the United States than any other Europeans. Poverty, overpopulation, and natural disaster all spurred Italian emigration.
Many Italian immigrants never planned to stay in the United States permanently, but of course many did, they settled and raised families and now there are many American descendents who are interested in visiting the birthplace of their relatives who left Italy so many years ago.
If you’re a “paisano”, find out more about your Italian heritage with our help we will able to show you the village where your ancestors moved from, we’ll go searching for birth certificates at the local townhall, our driver will be your translator when dealing with elderly people that might remember your family.
