The Italian Surname Database lists hundreds of surnames and contacts for those looking to connect with others researching the same names. To submit your surname to the site, use the feedback form. Include your Surname, Town, Province and Region in Italy you are researching, the name you wish to be known as and a valid email address where you can be contacted.
Please, do not send genealogy related questions through the feedback form as they go directly to the database queue to await approval and all other questions will be deleted. If you do have a genealogical related question then consider posting on Gente di Mare Italian Genealogy Forum. Registration and membership are both free and there are many wonderful volunteers willing and ready to help. Happy Researching!
The Ontario Genealogical Conference 2010 will be held on Friday, May 14 through Sunday, May 16, 2010, in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. This years theme is: “Essentials, Innovations & Delights” and will feature case studies, workshops and guest speakers such as genealogist Dr. John Philip Colletta, author of They Came in Ships and Finding Italian Roots – two must haves for anyone researching their Italian Roots,
Ruth Blair, who is also a professional genealogist based in Oakville, Ontario and author of Planning a Genealogical Trip to Ireland: the Research Trail in Dublin and Linda L. Reid, a retired librarian and volunteer in the Toronto Family History Centre of the LDS Church.
Of special interest to me is the Italian Ancestry Stream they have planned for Saturday, May 15 in which Dr. Colletta will conduct an exclusive two part lecture followed by highlight research techniques and sources in Italy, and how they are used to trace a family’s origins.
The Conference location for this years event will be held at
Doubletree by Hilton—Toronto Airport
655 Dixon Road
Toronto, Ontario, Canada M9W 1J3
I look forward to attending and hope to see you there!
