    Where can you start your Italian genealogy adventure?
    Simple chatting with elder relatives gives you much information to (re)construct your family history. In this way you can begin finding out names, occupations and other biographies. Contacting the relatives, especially the elderly, is a great help on your research. Soon you will be able to create a so-called family tree. If you are lucky you can begin to collect documents from the town your ancestors were from, like postcards, old pictures and more. At that point you can begin your search on the names you got and get information, trying to know more and more about them.

    Depending on how far back you are trying to go, it may be difficult and take some time. It’s obviously that there is no better place to search than where your ancestors lived. In this way you will mix your interest on history and the pleasure of travels in your real homeland.And it could be a nice game to play with your kids: teaching them thankfulness to the ancestors, who built yesterday the life they are living today. Having the background on where your origin came from is like completing the missing piece of yourself.
