Researching Italian Records
by Daniel Niemiec
Many people with Italian ancestors don’t read Italian, and thus they don’t try to research Italian civil or church records. Dan will show you that you can learn to find the genealogical information without reading every word on every page. He will show you an overview of common document formats and indexes so you can work with them easily.
Daniel Niemiec has been the monthly Italian genealogy columnist for Fra Noi for the past 12 years. He has researched his family for 26 years and has traced his Italian roots back to the mid 1600’s. By tracing the descendants of those ancestors he has well over 80,000 known relatives.
