Finding my family

Postby Sambina » 23 Mar 2006, 11:36

I was wondering if anyone here would know how I could write to Italy for information? I can read and write Italian a little. I used to speak, read and write fluently so I still remember some. I have had such a hard time finding any of my family. They all came from Italy and yet I can't find any records in Italy.

I could really use some help because I promised my grandmother I would get information about her mother. She was only 8 when her mother died and she was sent to live with aunts and uncles. Her brothers were sent to an orphanage. Even years later when the family was back together they never spoke of her.

I did find her headstone in the cemetery but all of the information on it is wrong as well as the information that they kept on her and the stone.

Thank you in advanced for any and all help!
