2017 marks the 20th Anniversary of our company. We are celebrating two decades of finding nearly 20,000 ancestors. Our customers have all been a joy to work with, and  have come from all over the world…Canada, USA, Mexico, Argentina, Brazil, Peru, Australia, Ireland, UK, and South Africa! Their ancestors left from all regions of Italy.
Many of our researchers have experience stemming back more than twenty years. But 1997 is the year PCIR was formed. The center conducts research by various methods for each unique case. Sometimes the only method in a certain town, or earlier century, is to go to a church in person. In this case, we have a network of specialists  in Italy. Permission to access parish records is often available only to professionals.
PCIR has expanded services over the years. In 1997 we never imagined we’d be locating ancestral homes by drone! New services include Title Reports, original deeds, and locating heirs for inheritances. For a family tree, choose from a single session, mini tree, or a full book. Once a bit of your tree has been researched,  you’ll want to meet or correspond with new cousins in Italy. If you’re applying for dual citizenship, we can obtain  certified records from Italy. Or perhaps your interest is in obtaining old military records, primary source material for a book you’re writing, such as an old police report from WW2. Translators are available for any of these records.
How far back we can go depends on the availability of records that exist for your family’s ancestral town. (If you don’t know what town we can usually discover the town of origin.) We’ve been able to get into the 1500’s for many people who chose keep digging. But you are never locked into any contracts.
We look forward to helping you discover your family history !

Avigliano (Province Potenza)

29 Oct

If you have the surname COVIELLO on your family tree, and your ancestors came from Avigliano, the Pallante Center has extensive research already done. Chances are high that you can tie into a pre-existing tree. It’s possible that you may only need one full research session.
