I need help. I'm stuck. I can go back 4 generations on both my mothers and fathers sides. My problem is my family does not seem to remember more names and when I was in italy I found it very confusing. Any suggestions on how to move forward would be great. Thank you.
Four generations would put yuou back to the early 1800's or late 1700's . It owuld have been helpful had you mentioned the last year you go back. Civil records (again you provide no town of origin ) go back to 1803 in Southern Italy and Sicilky and commence in the 1870's in the rest of Italy but you will have to provide this information in order to direcxt you accordingly. All civil records,howver, in Italy, do not appear prior to 1800 nad you must go to the church records. I cannot provide you with the names of the church since I do not know the town of origin but I assume you must know the church name and address. Peter
