Travel to Italy to Research your Family Roots

Are you interested in researching your family tree and experience walking "in person" in your Ancestor's' footsteps and regional lifestyle?

Are you planning on visiting Italy and would like to learn more about your Italian Family?

Then why not organize a family trip to your Ancestral village!

We provide assistance through our bi-lingual researchers who will spend a full day (or more) with you. Together you will visit both the town hall and the local church to perform the research of your ancestors and/or your potential living relatives.

This onsite research is usually concentrated on finding any living relatives who might have remained there, but it is really up to you to set your research goal. A visit to the local cemetery is often requested. Often a reunion with your living relatives may take place.


Fees and Services:

Fee per day = $1,200 + our researcher's travel expenses

We charge $0.75 per kilometer to cover traveling expenses for our researcher to come to meet you. All other expenses, such as meals, should be kindly covered by you while onsite.

We suggest you take care of your own transportation for insurance purposes; however, our researchers can rent a car to drive you to your Ancestral village. This extra cost will be added to those listed above.
