bdag,

Looks like you have already done some research on your family.

Are you looking for US records or Italian? You should have all your US documents in place before attempting to research overseas...it will be much easier.
Some things to consider:

Have you placed them on a US census?
Have you located naturalization papers if Applicable?
Do you have the SNN?

These are only a few things to consider but it will elp you get started.

Some great sites to look through..

www.familysearch.org

http://www.paginebianche.it/index.html

www.ancestry.com (paid subscription site so you will need to register and pay upfront but can use it for a trial period for 14 days).

Must have reads..

Italian Genealogical Records by Trafford Cole
Discovering Your Italian Ancestors by Lynn Nelson

I like having both this books because they sort of go hand in hand. I think you would enjoy them too..lots of great information in them.

Hope this helps in getting you started.

Nuccia:

Thanks for the very helpful advice.

I am looking for Italian records/information for my grandparents and am having fun with the process.

Again, thanks for your post.
