have been collecting data on our family for over 10 years now.
Until the internet, I only had scant records, and a few stories.
I have been able to find records, and meet family members I
never knew I had thru some of the message boards online, and
other excellent sites. Here are the sites that were most helpful
to me during my research and the creation of this site:
Ellis Island Records Searchable site
The best tool I've found yet for finding relatives who emigrated
through Ellis Island.
Church of Latter Day Saint's website. Thousands of records available
online. An excellent resource.
Excellent tool for searching surnames. Searches multiple sites
at once, including Ancestry.com
Arduini's Genealogy site
At his Web site, Frank Arduini shows examples of Italian vital
records with step-by-step instructions as to how to read and
extract the data.

Great site including links to maps, ships, photos, places, ect.

surnames are located today!
