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!
Spett.le Direzione Generale per gli Archivi,
Come molti appassionati di genealogia, apprezziamo enormemente gli sforzi sviluppati dalla Direzione Generale per gli Archivi per rendere pubblici gratuitamente i documenti di Stato civile. Siamo dunque stati entusiasti all’annuncio del lancio del “Portale degli Antenati” e dell’accordo firmato tra la Direzione Generale per gli Archivi e Family Search International per la digitalizzazione, l’indicizzazione e la pubblicazione dei registri italiani.
