Michele and his staff did an outstanding job on our recent research trip to rural southern Italy to find my family’s history. He organized the trip, provided a translator, arranged overnight lodging, and directly engaged with the municipal records administrator at Foiano di Val Fortore .
Michele, was able to quickly locate and read the records. All of this was photographed so that I now have copies of the original records, and a GEDCOM database file. He added over 70 new names to my family line, extending my visibility to 9 generations back to the 1700’s!
Michele showed great expertise in navigating these records. I could not have done this without him, and Giuseppina, his very fluent and helpful translator. Also, Amministrazione Comunale Foiano ValFortore was so very kind and helpful. It was a wonderful team effort! Grazie mille!
If you need help with southern Italy family history research, I whole heartedly can recommend the Museo del Cognome!
