Can someone recommend a search service company in Italy...

Postby Svxcess » 05 Nov 2008, 14:44

Hello,

I have hit the wall with the information I can find online and in the US. I really don't have time to write a million letters and am interested in hiring a company in Italy that is able to assist me in finalizing my genealogy.

Can anyone recommend any reputable companies with track records of being able to find this information?

Any help / info on good companies would be appreciated.

Sincerely,

Most of the best researchers operate in small portions of Italy (a single province or region, for example). As such, it would be helpful if you list the villages, cities, regions, etc, where the research is to be performed.

Most of the people I'm looking for information on are in the Calabria and Campagia areas (specifically, Limatola, Cosenza, Nuceria Inferior, not sure on the others towns, that's what I'm trying to figure out).

Any ideas?

Hi There

There are actually a few professionals on this board although I am not sure if they work in the areas you need.

When I used a professional service, I first looked at http://www.apgen.org

That is the Association of Professional Genealogists, there is a locator there which will tell you about genealogists that may cover the area you need in Italy. PLUS, this is a good site in that it will tell you what to expect, what to be cautious about and etc....when dealing with a genealogy search, there are a lot of scammers out there, so you need to be careful. I am sure there are more than a few stories floating out there.

Good Luck

I highly recommend Kathy Kirkpatrick who makes periodic trips thru Sicily and Southern Italy conducting genealogy research at places of origin. She is a USC who resides in Utah. She caneached at www.gentracer.com. =Peter=
