My grandmother Ermelinda Clerici came to NY on August 17, 1907. Her place of residence was listed as Parma, Berceto (ethnicity listed as italy, Italian North). How do I go about finding information on her life iln Italy? Obviously, I am new to this whole thing and am finding it rough going. Any help would be apreciated.
Melinda in order to understand genealogy you have to understand some bascis. Obtain a boook titled ITALIAN GENEALOGICAL RECORDS by Trafford R. Cole and this, along with the explanation of genealogy on the home page of this website will start you off.
Well you can start off by looking at a map (www.mappy.com) of her town to see where it is located. The town of Berceto is in the province of Parma ibn the Emilia Romagna region of Northern Italy. If you go to www.paginebianche.it and put Clerici in the first line and Berceto in the third line and click CERCA a listing of (most likely a reltive) will show up by name,address and telephone number.
Have fun. Peter
