Just wanted to send "Thanks" out again to everyone on this site that has been so helpful!
I have had some recent luck reaching out to Italy and "cold-calling" on unknown relatives - so far I have been concentrating on my maternal side (both grandmother's & grandfather's families) and now I may be ambitious enough to start sending out feelers for my paternal side, too.
The guidance and help with translations has been (and still is) greatly appreciated. I am thankful for this site!
Happy everything is going well for you.......ItalianGenealogy is the best on the net, all members here volunteer their time and resources......and always put forth an effort to produce results for all post.......it's nice for their efforts to be acknowledged.......
