Australian trying to get Italian info.

Over 25 million Italians have emigrated between 1861 and 1960 with a migration boom between 1871 and 1915 when over 13,5 million emigrants left the country for European and overseas destinations.

Australian trying to get Italian info.

Subject: Australian trying to get Italian info.
I am in Brisbane, Australia, and am trying to find a local (as in Australia)professional genealogist to extend my Italian research a little. I would prefer a go-between, as I don't like putting my credit card details over the net. I don't want to pay a completely anonymous entity to possibly repeat research, or charge four times the going rate for birth/marriage certificates. Am I being unrealistic??

Certainly I'm not having any luck finding a local genealogist who is interested in Italian Research. I am trying to fill in a few gaps before my parents 50th wedding aniversary in Sept. Any tips or pointers would be great. I have a genealogy page with family tree maker. Also when it comes to searching the net the U.S. pages seem to refer to mostly American info and any seriously Italian sites don't have much in the way of translation pages. I would really appreciate a long list of suggestions to plough thru.

My second preference is to try one of the American groups of genealogists but how do I confirm their credentials??

Here is an article which explains a bit about how to select a genealogist.

http://genealogy.about.com/library/tips ... sional.htm

There are several genealogists that post on this board. I have sent you a Pm with their names. You would need to determine which, if any will be suitable to do the job that you require.

Good Luck and let us know how it goes.
