Thank you Mirella and Southern Italy Travel!
It’s very rare that your expectations are exceeded once during a vacation, in fact, there are usually more complaints about travel arrangements, schedules and other ‘challenges’. Well, because of the guidance and assistance Mirella from Southern Italy Travel, our expectations were exceeded for two full days during our family vacation and ancestry research trip to Sulmona!
The purpose of the trip was to learn more about our ancestors and where they lived. Mirella not only exceeded our expectations by finding ancestors from 1784 and multiple family lines we were not aware of, she copied all the origin birth and death certificates, created family tree charts and documents, organized a tour of the area by the deputy director of Sulmona and coordinated with the town of Introdacqua to see our family’s original birth records.
Mirella also interviewed people in the area and found relatives who joined us for lunch. This relative knew where my great great grandfather probably lived and she brought us to his house. What a memory! Would you believe one of the relatives lives 30 minutes from us in the US and we didn’t even know them?
Mirella is a great host and genealogist. She has a passion for family history and showed it during her full day of tours with our family. Mirella also helped organize lodging and dinners for 14 people!
I would highly recommend Mirella and Southern Italy Travel! Ciao.
