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!
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! 🙂
