Can’t get to Calabria but would like information?
If you would like to research your family history but can’t get to Italy, we can also complete your research for you and forward all the appropriate documents and photographs to you via email. If you provide us with the all the necessary information we can also produce a photograph album of the places that would correspond with your family history. This would make an ideal gift to share with any relatives who may have immigrated from Calabria. Contact us for more information and we will personally ensure that we’ll discover as much information as possible to complete your research into your family history in Calabria.
Remember that the research we offer will depend on as much background information that you can provide us with. Once we have received the information we can begin making all the necessary enquiries for you.
Thank you so much for the wonderful trip in the beautiful region of Calabria! We appreciate all the help in finding family in Sersale. It was very emotional to meet family. The people there were amazing, the scenery was beautiful and the food was simply fantastic! Everyone was so kind and helpful to us on our mission to find family. It was a trip of a lifetime. You helped make a dream come true for Dad! We all had such a great time. We have other relatives that are interested in traveling to Sersale to do the same. We have told them about your services and highly recommend they contact you!! Thanks again for such a wonderful time. It was such a pleasure meeting you, Vito, Maria, Enzo and Edo. We will forever treasure the friendships that we have developed. Look forward to making another trip and seeing more of such a beautiful country and your company as well. You really went above and beyond any expectations we had!
