I was so happy with the choice I made to work with Southern Italy Travel to help research my family history in Molise. Stefano and Mirella were very patient while I sourced as much information from old photos and scraps of paper with addresses from time past of relatives we were not sure were still living or even in Italy.
My mother’s greatest dream was to connect with her Italian family. Over the years, she lost contact as her siblings passed and people moved. Stefano and Mirella not only connected my mom with her cousin but also brought together members of our extended family we never knew existed.
The reunion with family and witnessing my mother make this connection to her roots will stay with me for my lifetime, not to mention the connection my sisters and I now have to our extended family in Molise and beyond.
As we get older, moments of wonder and surprise become more rare, and Stefano and Mirella were able to give us that gift.
