Because of Stefano, I was able to make my dream come true to visit the town where my grandmother was born and raised. It is a small town and no one really speaks English. I do not speak Italian, but with Stefano acting as my researcher, translator and guide, it was a wonderful experience!
I was able to meet the Mayor and Vice Mayor of the town, was presented with a book about the town from the Mayor, go into the church my grandmother and her family attended, go to the cemetery where most of my ancestors had been buried, experience the local food and explore the town.
As a huge bonus, Stefano had found a cousin that I did not know about and we were able to spend time together with my “new” cousin and his wife. I received lots of information about the town and my ancestors and have now added over 30 people to my ancestral tree.
From first contacting Southern Italy Travel to my return home and after, I have received quick responses to my e-mails and questions.
I would recommend this company to anyone wanting to research their Italian family and roots. They were very professional, thorough, and very easy to work with. I will be forever grateful to Stefano and his company to make what I thought was an impossible wish come true.
