Southern Italy Travel provided our family with 2 amazing days of visiting my grandparents home towns.
Stefano Ammirati is an outstanding genealogical researcher and he accumulated extensive birth death and marriage records from both towns.
Each visit was special and totally unique. My father’s parents came from a small mountain town and I met cousins I didn’t know that I had. Many hugs and stories to share.
Touring the town, learning its history, and seeing the places where my grandparents and their families lived and went to church was a thrill. A visit to the cemetery gave context to the generations of my ancestry. I was in awe.
The town of my mother’s family was now a large suburb of Naples. Although no relatives were located the visit to the town hall with all the birth death and marriage certificates revealed many relatives I was not aware existed.
The tour of the town and birthplaces gave me goosebumps. Especially the visit to the church where my great-grandparents were married in 1862. I was even permitted to hold the book that contained their marriage license. There are so many great memories I can now share with my cousins in the US.
Let’s not forget the authentic lunches we shared in each town. Amazing 3-4 courses plus dessert and the best Limoncello of our time in Italy.
Stefano provides great translations and sends PDF copies of all the information he’s collected.
You do not need to look anywhere except SOUTHERN ITALY TRAVEL if you want the BEST genealogical tour available!
Grazie Mille Stefano.
