Dear SandyM in Italy most records are inthe town of origin and when you say Reggio calabria area and Abruzzo area, particularly when you do not even give us a name puts us at a loss to effectively assist you in your researches.

May I refer you to www.angelfire.com/ok3/pearlsofwisdom and when this website appears click on FREELY LEARN HOW TO DO ITALIAN GENEALOGY and start off on your personal adventure into genealogy.

We are here to assist you in learning. =Peter=

REead the website I furnished you and in particular the paragraph that talks about obtaining records from your family's town of origin in Italy since records in Italy can mostly be found there for births,marriages and deaths.

It is always more satisftying finding the information on your own and at your own speed with just help from us don't you think? =Peter=

The only information that I was given by my grandfather was that his parents came from those 2 areas of Italy, I do know the surnames for both of my g-grandparents but am at a loss with other stuff.

I do have the Ellis Island ship records on both of them also.

I'd like any help I can get, I've been working on this stuff since 2003 and have several things in hand but nothing makes since....My grandfather passed away on 20 Sept. and the 'family' would like to see a family tree and I hit a road block with some of the information I have. No one else seems to want to help in my 'family', and all the elders of this family are gone now.
