Tips on starting your research
Here you'll find links on researching in Italy, translations of Italian professions into English, historical analysis of 19th Century immigration in Britain, and lots more.
This page, with its many links to outside sources, is the Society's main tool for research. Whether you want to search for an Italian Church: the address of a comune; write for civil or church records, both here or in Italy; download boilerplate letters with translation to send to Italy; and just about anything else you need to know about researching your ancestors' past, you will find a link for it here.
This page includes the past and present membership's surname interests. Contact with a shared surname interest is open to non-members but only through a committee member. Members can contact each other directly through the information in the password protected Members' Area.
