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.
We would like to congratulate Mike Savoca, the recipient of the 2013 Suzanne Winsor Freeman Memorial Grant.
Mike has been a part of our small Italian genealogy community for several years and we are proud to have him represent us at the Southern California Genealogical Society Jamboree June 7-9 where he will receive his award during a scholarship breakfast.
Look for more on Mike in the coming months as he will be covering the jamboree and sharing his thoughts with us.
As an added bonus to Mike, the Gente Community would like to add an additional $100.00 to the grant on behalf of the late Carole Bienati, Gente’s co-founder and one of Mike’s biggest supporters.
