How do you find family still in Italy?

Postby ponyrider127 » 18 Sep 2008, 01:20

My Grandfather Calogero and Great Grandfather Baldassare Verde came to the USA but my Great Grandmother Rosalia Di Prima never came because my Great Grandfather was killed. So this is were I need to start. I do know that Calogero was born June 20, 1889 in Sambuca. Rosalia did remarry some time later. Would like to find out what happen to her family if anyone could help or send me in the right direction.

Thank you

The overall guidance is to work backwards from the earliest family member who immigratwed to the USSA and work backward.

Dear Tonyric thanks but every once in a while some gremlin throws the website out and then just as suddenly returns for no good reason one way or the other...we are lucky this time. SDometimes I get around the gremlin by going to www.angelfire.com/0k3/pearls of wisdom and another similar website shows up with the Itaklian genealogy research we are looking for is listed as a link. Wierd.=Peter=
