Ever wonder when your great grandparents came to the US or Canada? Wonder where they lived or what their profession was? Would you like to view a census record of your ancestors? Interested in searching for more info in Italy..?

If you are interested in "Finding your Roots" than you can post here and we will do our best to help you in your search. Starting with yourself, and working backwards determine what you already know and what you nedd. Then..

Post your ancestors name, estimated year of birth and possible immigration date if known, name of spouse (use maiden names for women) and the names of any siblings or children known. Also it helps if you know where they were originally from or where they immigrated to. Not all this info is necessary to locate info but it does help.

Look foward to hearing from you!

Nuccia

Very Happy

Now there's an offer it will be hard to ignore I bet.... and I know how good Nuccia is at this, even if it is only a 'hobby' (though a serious one) for her.

Ideally from 'our' point of view it would be really nice if requests and the 'basics' could be posted here. This would not, of course, involve ANY 'strictly confidential' points which you would not like shown here. But if you are happy - or even proud - to have details posted, then we would appreciate that.

I know that if there are any sensitive areas that Nuccia finds, she will drop back to Private Messages for you!
Thanks everyone....
Carole B.

Hi Carole,

I'm glad you added to this post. You're right, Carole this is just a hobby for me but one which I really love. I should mention that none of the information we would be posting here has a privacy clause attached to it at this time. The info is all part of public records and is available legally, online through ancestry. com and other related websites. Very Happy

Yes, I never post "sensitive" info on the web, but I will email you personally. We can also direct you to where you yourself can find info if you prefer to research this way. It would be wise to specify this at the beginning of your request. Many towns in Italy are microfilmed and can be ordered for a small fee. Then the researcher can view them at his or her leisure for 3 weeks.

While there are several professional genealogists that we know, it should be made clear that I can not refer anyone. I will however link articles and comments made by others recommending these genealogists and you can choose for yourself if you should you decide to go that route.

I hope this clears up a few questions that anyone might have. If you have any other questions which haven't been answered, feel free to ask.

Nuccia Very Happy

I would like to add that Nuccia made me and my family very happy last week by giving us information on all four of my grandparents. It was so exciting to learn about them.

Thank you again Nuccia.

Sometimes I feel rootless....even though there's a sorted family history on my dad's side with a family castle, a mad queen, and a bunch of relatives who escaped to the U.S. I'm part Scottish, Irish, German, French and English. When I was about 25, a guy asked me if I was French, because of my ankles. Was that a line, or what? He's also the guy who was raised on a reservation and was a little too interested in sheep, when he was a kid, he said. lol

Makes you wonder, don't it? I'll look into this and get back to you about it.....


Lou went out so I'm checking out a few new family tree software programs..lots of good stuff out there! Haven't done any research all weekend so I'm a bit behind...

The sheep guy was German, Irish and Native American - not Italian at all. I think it's a multicultural thing. I asked him how the sheep were. He said they were pretty good. Gees - men can enjoy such disgusting things.

Nuccia Very Happy


This was/is an 'almost' recognised pastime of shepherd's in Yorlkhire in England....They would stay with their flocks up on the wild Yorkshire moors for month's at a time - and I suppose all one can say is "A man's gotta do what a man's gotta do"!!!!!!

(I'm going to laugh in a minute.....it's sooooo funny - well maybe not for the sheep).

Hee hee hee

My ancestors spent half the year tending their sheep in the appennines. I often wondered what the attraction was.

Baaaaaaa

Excuse me ladies (there aren't any fellers here at the moment are there - quick, someone look behind the door....).

But I think this particular conversation should really be on the 'Naught but Nice thread.
Well the shepherds seem to enjoy it!
