I know it’s been a hot minute since I’ve last posted but there’s been so much going that the time just seemed to get away from me.
Today I wanted to touch base and let you know about all the new changes going on in genealogy. For many it may be old news by now – but for those that don’t know, please keep reading.
We’ve streamlined our umbrella of sites choosing to add more quality contact to less domains. The Italian Surname Database has a new home now and I would love it if you had the time to take a quick look and tell me what you think. The old way of adding information and updating lists made it very difficult to keep up so hopefully this will solve some of those issues.
In other exciting news: The Italian Archives have been busy putting up civil records for much of Italy which means no more having to order microfilms and work around the LDS schedule! Now you can search for many records right from the comfort of your home and it’s FREE with no registration require! Family Search has also expanded it’s Italian records and does include some church records. I suggest you check out both resources when searching as they do host different content.
I’ll sign off for now but promise to be back with more updates soon. Have a great weekend and thanks for visiting!
Well folks we did it. We made it through another year! Now that the holidays are winding down it’s time to start thinking about this years research goals.
I’ve never been a fan of New Year resolutions – mainly because I am just not that disciplined enough to keep most of the ones I make so instead I am going to work on a few more realistic goals that I would like to see myself accomplish to keep me more organized and still allow me to do many of the other things I enjoy. I will worry less about how ‘pretty’ something looks and more on content for my websites. In fact, I may just completely eliminate some of my sites and add them all to one more complete and comprehensive website.
So my goal – and ONLY goal this year is to be more organized! I will continue to extract and research but have given myself limitations. Instead of trying to re invent the wheel this year and overwhelming myself trying to do it all I am going to give myself blocks of time each week with very specific areas I want to concentrate on beginning with January’s must do – CLEANING OUT MY COMPUTER AND PAPER FILES! I have already starting going through endless piles of useless paper [which translated into 2 full large bags of garbage] and am in the process of doing the same to my PC files. It’s amazing what one finds…
And on that note – here’s a list of extractions I found from about a year ago I never put online for San Donato Val di Camino Deaths 1865 – Frosinone.
Updating records and links to the Armo & Gallina , Reggio Calabria pages on the Calabria Exchange. Have also updated WW1 Deaths for those born in Gallina with a surname beginning with the Letter A. For those of you having trouble locating civil birth or death records for your male ancestor this may help.
And don’t forget to check out our E-Store. You can now shop Amazon directly from this page or from Calabria Exchange. There’s a great selection of Genealogy books at up to 30% off and some wonderful holiday gift ideas to suit everyone on your list.
Full Disclosure : If you purchase anything through any of the links posted I will receive a small compensation amount which will be used to purchase additional resources for these websites. Thanks in advance for any purchases made and for visiting today. ~nuccia
Thanks to Lou Loccisano from the Calabria DNA Project for making available and Carmen Papallo from the Famiglie di Martone,Italy Genealogy Project for extracting the Martone, Reggio Calabria 1745 Catasto.
The Catasto Onciario were records of taxes paid by the commoners of a comune to the City and list all items in their possession at they time. This is what the taxes were based on and were taken in the mid 1700?s. They also list any servants living on the property at the time.
As seen on both websites, Louis and Carmen each have deep roots in Martone and both have shared so much of their research with us. More civil records and additional information can also be found on Calabria Exchange.
We are currently in the process of extracting the 1745 Catasto Onciario for the Comune of Gioiosa. At the present time it is almost 50% complete. Images and extractions should be completely uploaded sometime in August.
Stay tuned for further updates on this and many other exciting new projects.
We are pleased to announce a genealogy data sharing partnership has been formed been Calabria Exchange and Il Circolo Calabrese .
As part of that relationship, ICC will be hosting genealogical data that has been extracted from various towns around Calabria while using ICCs database engine to make everything searchable online. What this means to you is that you will soon have access to more genealogy data on both websites using faster and easier methods of searching.
Currently C|E hosts over 160, 000 extractions and images to various records for towns in the province of Reggio Calabria while ICC is largest Calabrese membership organization in the world devoted to the study and preservation of the genealogy, history, culture and language of the Calabria region of Italy.
websites and databases are getting face lifts so if you are looking through the sites and they look a bit
messy then this is the reason. I was hoping the transition would go a bit more quickly but this is what happens when you have too many things on the go.
You will also find the addition of many new records on the sites as people have been emailing things from all over recently. I have been putting up some special family pages as well for several people from various parts of Calabria, Sicily and Frosinone.
If you have any information or records to share then please contact me through the feedback form and let me know.
