Looking For Volunteers

Calabria Exchange Color Logo Calabria Exchange Color Logo Calabria Exchange Color Logo

Currently we are looking for Spanish-English and Italian-English speaking/reading/writing volunteers who are able to commit a few hours a week to help with extracting records, answering emails, and data entry. The interested person(s) should have access to Microsoft Excel, Word or Google Docs and have an understanding of Italian Vital records.  Most records will focus on the Southern region of Italy.

Interested parties can submit a short paragraph about themselves and what they’re skills are.   Additionally if you have already done research on a particular family, town or region and would like to contribute or link that research to our site please let us know.  Genealogy or Family History sites ONLY please (all sites will be reviewed prior to linking).

New Website Look and Updated Search Features

Gente di Mare Over the last few months I’ve been busy trying to update both the Gente di Mare Website and Italian Surname Database.  A major makeover was desperately needed.   It’s been a bit slow going to say the least but it’s finally coming together!

The site is now being broken down into Categories and an index has been added to the home page which I’ll be adding to as new content becomes live.  Due to the amount of files I have *buried* in the site this will take a while to get all linked.

The Italian Surname Database has also been updated to include a new search feature which now allows viewers to search not only by surname but by town, province and region.  It also allows partial searches which is helpful for displaying alternate name spellings.  Please note:  You can not search by email addresses or contributor names  so this should cut down on spam.  A widget has also been added to the site with real time posts linked to the Italian Surname Database Blog for easier viewing.

Hopefully you like the new features. As always I look forward to hearing your thoughts on the new look and any suggestions you might.  To add your surname to the database please continue to use the feedback form.  Names should be enter in to following format using normal text:

Surname
Town
Province
Region
Your Name
Your Email

Please refrain for using all capital or lowercase letters.  Thanks and Happy Searching!
