Tracing family roots can really be a lifetime experience

Tracing families

Between the end of the nineteenth century and the beginning of the twentieth century, the advent of steamships and railways allowed many Italian families to move to other countries in the world.

The powerful publicity of the shipping and railway companies attracted and encouraged many farmers and poor families who decided to seek other areas of the world that might have offered them great opportunities to settle in and to change their social status for the better.

They looked for better life opportunities in Northern Europe, USA, Argentina or Australia.

Many generations have passed and  today a lot of descendants of those families are searching their roots back to their homeland in Italy.

We offer special private tours to help you trace the origins of your ancestors, their birthplaces and their homes before they moved abroad.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you are searching for your family roots in Italy
