The zoom waiting room will open at 3.45 pm and the meeting will commence at 4.00 pm. It will be recorded.

These sessions are currently open only to members. Please register for a place and request login details from our Membership Secretary.

Members can also search the 1939 edition of the "Guida Generale degli Italiani in Gran Bretagna" - a directory of Italians compiled under the auspices of the Italian Consular authorities. This has been digitised and added to our database and is a resource not available on any other site. Members can search for a surname and then scroll through the entire book which includes many business adverts, some with photographs.
