Learn how to make the most of online Italian records, and learn methods for searching the unindexed, digital images to find your ancestors. With Italian ancestry, the most important genealogical fact that you need to get into records in Italy is the name of your ancestor’s hometown. Since many of us can’t get to Italy to visit our ancestral towns, gathering information about our ancestors from afar is the next best thing. With the name of your hometown in hand, a little luck, and a lot of patience, you can search Italian records from home, online at midnight in your pajamas. In this lecture, you'll discover some of the main genealogical record groups that are available online for Italian research.
