    Excellent breakdown of Italian Civil Registration records

    Fantastic webinar with lots of great information to advance Italian relatives researching.

    Great info. Thx!

    Great information – Thank you, Melanie!

    I came in late (for some reason I had to re-download the webinar software), but I liked what I heard. I will definitely go back and watch from the beginning once the webinar is available in the library.

    I gained a better understanding of allegati and some other record types and appreciated the pace of Melanie’s presentation.

    I learned so much from this webinar! I own Melanie’s book on Italian research, and this just added to the research possibilities. Thank you, Melanie!

    I’m just starting my search on my paternal ancestry. This is a really great webinar that explains that there is much more information available than just Birth and Death records. Great webinar!

    Melanie Holtz’s information was great as she explained the time frames when these documents were developed, as well as their content and where to obtain them.

    It was very informative and understandable

    Jam packed. Lots to digest.

    Learned a lot.

    Melanie was amazing

    More such webinars about Italy, please, especially northern Italy. Southern Italy is more often covered. And since Italian Americans are such a large ethnic group in the US, we need more representation in the webinar subjects!

    Excellent session.

    Since I do not believe that I have any Italian relatives, it was probably not as relevant to me as other ones I have watched. For those with Italian ancestry, I am sure that it was very useful

    This was especially helpful to learn what the different record types are and what they could possibly contain.

    Very good explanations of the “other” records available to find and research in our Italian/Sicilian families.

    very informative

    Very informative regarding available records! Thank you!

    Well-organized, clearly delivered. Excellent! The greatest amount of readily useful information I could have hoped for. This Webinar has re-ignited my passion to research my Italian family.

    Wow. So much info.
