Choose a three or six month project, or stay to get a full family history book. Afterwards we can search for living relatives in Italy!
We have been established for decades and have partners all over Italy. What we need from you:
- A solid starting point. (Tell us all you know about the line to be researched.)
- Clear goals.
- Copies of any documents you already have that pertain, with your application fee, or a deposit for a research session. We will then review what you have and determine the starting point. Sometimes the starting point is to discover the town of origin.

Interviews were conducted and filmed in Sicily for an upcoming movie documentary. Now a (preferably native-born and raised in Sicily) person is needed to translate into English– direct from the video. Applicants also need to be able to record time code as they go, so that the filmmaker is able to match to frame. The translator will watch video footage and create a transcript in English. The transcription must be in sync with the video time code. The film maker will later close caption selected passages. If you think you can do this, please contact us immediately !

No need to rent a car (unless you prefer), but the tour guide will take you around on a carefree narrated private tour. CLICK ON THE LINK BELOW FOR MORE DETAILS.
The winner is a man who was adopted when two years old, and spent a lifetime with an overwhelming desire to know about his birth family. The story is full of many different twists and turns and unexpected surprises. It’s a compelling story of one man’s emotional journey. Ultimately, he found himself in pursuit of his Italian immigrant’s place of origin–though he never knew he was Italian! His lineage has now been traced back several centuries–to an ancestor who first arrived in northern Italy from Sardinia !
A man who once knew pretty much nothing at all, now knows even the exact house where his immigrant to Australia was born in 1850. He was surprised to learn the month and day of birth, because his granddaughter shares the same birthday ! The family hopes to visit their ancestral town in Italy in the near future. It was over 130 years ago when his ancestor, Giovanni made the decision to respond to an ad by the Australian government and move to a far away land.
