I am wondering if there is a good Italian search site that you know of to try and research ancestors. All the ones I have come across has not been helpful..I do have a subscripyion to Ancestarty.com but I cannot find any specific Italian search there. Thank you for your time!

You've stumbled into the best Italian research site of them all! :)

Thank you Carmine. I am looking for any info I can get on Dorothea Casmira/ Rozzoni and Ettore Dozzino/Rozzoni. Ettore changed the family name to Rozzoni after settling in Kenosha Wisconsin. I know that Dorothea came over on the boat with her daughter Maria Dozzina/Rozzoni in June 19, 1913. Dorothea wa born on Dec 18 1888 and Ettore was born on Dec 20 1887 in Rota Greca , Calabria area. I am looking for any siblings they may have had in Italy or their birth parents.
I sent letters to Rota Grexa Calabria Commune today and will ordering the micro fis films. I have done all this one a couple of years ago but I never heard from them and never were able to get the films.
Can anyone help me find a clue please?

In rechecking the manifest for Ettore it shows his last residence as Rota Greca but his birth place as Celico.
