I'm fairly new on here and thought I would formally introduce myself. First of all, what an awesome forum! Everyone is so kind and eager to help. Even though I have been on here for a few months, I'm just now starting to learn how to navigate around here instead of just posting questions.
I moved to Italy last year in July for a job opportunity for my husband. We both have Italian origins, so I decided to start digging. My goals are: to construct a family tree going back as many generations as I can, locate relatives, and visit the hometowns that are families came from.
So far I have found and visited relatives on my great grand-mothers side. Unfortunately, I have only been able to trace the her parents name. So
this is still a work in progress. I found a 3rd or 4th cousin on here who generously gave me a lot of information on my husbands side and have gone back 7 generations (incredible! I am so grateful!).
Needless to say, I am so happy to have found this wonderful forum that has helped me in achieving my goals! I look forward to learning more as I continue on my quest!
Ciao for now!
