Members' Area

All editions of our award winning journal, Italian Roots are archived on our website. They are available for members to view or download in the Publications.

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.
