We’ve always considered digging deeper in my grandmother’s ancestry and recently had the opportunity to visit the remote area in southern Italy where she was born and raised. I had done some preliminary research but soon realized with my limited grasp of the language that we would need some help if we were going to get the most out of our short visit.
I explored some TripAdvisor forums and found a reference for Southern Italy Travel – Explore your roots. From the very first correspondence, I knew that I was working with a professional who knew how to bring my ancestry research to a new level. Mirella worked with me to custom tailor our day.
She left no stone unturned and did a significant amount of research and on-site preparation weeks before we even arrived. Everything was in place for our visit and we learned so much about my grandmother’s life, and about where and how she lived. She even uncovered family members we never even knew existed! What struck us the most was the genuine interest that Mirella had in our family, and her passion for what she does.
We are very thankful for the day we had and will always remember it.
