Our Heritage has several experienced associates who live in Italy and Sicily that are available for on-site searches/visits at churches and municipal buildings in all towns and cities throughout Italy and Sicily.
Services include researching family ancestry (including constructing a family tree, if enough information is located); obtaining copies of birth, death, and marriage certificates; search for existing relatives (including a photocopy of page in local telephone directory listing names, addresses and telephone numbers of relatives and others with same surname); photographs of selected venues (historical landmarks, neighborhoods, ancestral home, countryside, cemetery, etc).
Reasonable Fees start at US$ 250. per day, plus expenses for travel, etc. Fees vary depending on time spent and distance from the home base of the Researcher to the town where the search is conducted.
If you are interested, please fill out and submit the form below with details about what and who you want searched, in what town(s), etc. Then we will forward your request to the appropriate Researcher who will communicate directly to you with fee information and estimated time of when you can expect results. (typically a few weeks)
Of course, we cannot guarantee what or how many records will be found. We can assure you that every effort will be made to find whatever family records exist at the town hall and/or local parish. Also included will be photos of the town of origin. Plus, if time permits, an attempt will be made to find any existing relatives.
Some of our Italy and Sicily based colleagues are available for personal escort services. All arrangements are made through Our Heritage:
