Beginning Italian Research: Civil Records- DIMAGGIO

0 Comment

Class description: This class will include lecture and some hands on use of research tools that will be taught.  We will start out briefly with how to find clues here in the U.S.  Then our main focus will be going “over the pond” to search Italian civil records. We may also look at parish records if there is enough interest and time. Due to the way records were kept in different areas of Italy, at different time periods, finding and reading these records can be challenging. We will cover free online resources to assist you in your quest to overcome many of these obstacles. 

 Instructor: Alice DiMaggio married into an Italian family many years ago. She found herself inspired by her father in law to research their Italian line. Consequently she fell in love with the Italian people, their history and Italian genealogy.  In recent years, she served as a full-time Missionary at the Family History Library in Salt Lake City for a year and a half (2019-2020). There she received more extensive training in Italian Research. This included how to read and locate both civil and Parish records. Alice continues to do online consultations as a volunteer in Italian Research for the FamilySearch Library.  She is currently volunteering 4 hours a week at the Mesa FamilySearch Center (Monday afternoons) and serves in her ward as a FH consultant.
