Tracing Your Italian Genealogy

Apr 8, 2008
There is a strong positive presence of Italians throughout the United States of Americas history. For many Italian/Americans it is exciting to learn about their Italian genealogy and where exactly their ancestors came from.

Not only can this information showcase the strength of the immigrants that came to the United States of America, it can teach about the traditions that many brought with them to this new country. Tracing an Italian genealogy chart can take some work and investigating skills, but there are resources that can help with this big undertaking.

Resources For Tracing Your Ancestry

One of the first places to start when tracing an Italian genealogy chart is by asking your own family members for information. It can be surprising how over time, people forget correct names and when tracing an Italian genealogy chart or any other family tree, it is important to have the most accurate information possible. Talk with family members and write down all of the information that you are given, keep in mind you may learn a different story once you start tracking your Italian genealogy chart.

For those looking into specifically Italian genealogy charts there are resources to be found on the internet. There are web-sites dedicated to listing information that can be helpful to people tracing their Italian heritage. Some of the information that can be found is lists of ships names that came to the United States of America from Italy. Within the information is also a list of passenger's names. This can help narrow down the focus for someone looking for specific ancestors.

There are also web-sites that show how others have traced their Italian genealogy. This can be a great resource because other people have gone down this path and are able to pass on tips on how they managed to find information. There are clubs designed to assist with searches in regards to Italian genealogy, and these are again a good way to learn how to trace a family tree and what resources others have found helpful.

It can also be useful to know where in the United States that a family settled. By tracing old records families can find their ancestors and track them. This includes things like marriage, birth and death certificates that may have been issued. If you know where your family lived for a time, this may be one way to begin the tracing process, by finding out where these records are kept. Keep in mind, records get lost, or they may have never been issued.

Tracing an Italian genealogy chart can be done and the information that is discovered will certainly be treasured by future generations. Don't loose patience; it may be a time consuming task, but in the end a worthwhile investment.
