derna, cyrenia

Post by MauroMags » 15 May 2006, 09:28

Hi there,

Are there any databases or archives that deal with the Italian colonies in Cyrenia (libya) My great grandmother Marta Maria Santoro was apparently buried there (1936?), in the city of Derna and I am curious to whether there are any viable avenues for geneology research for that part of the world.

thanks,
Mauro
