Italian Genealogy – Researching Onsite in Italy

This webinar teaches you best practices for accessing and using archives in Italy to research your Italian ancestors.

We work to the highest genealogical standards and are constantly studying and expanding our knowledge through a variety of educational opportunities.  While at times clients simply want us to find a document in an Italian archive, we go above and beyond simple document retrieval in the quality of our translation and analysis of each document. We share our knowledge in these sessions with the intention of empowering our clients and others who are interested in the work, to have access to helpful information.

If you have a question about researching your situation, Lo Schiavo Genealogica, LLC offers a free one hour evaluation of your genealogy or citizenship project. There’s no obligation!
