Genealogy Research: Potenza and Matera Provinces of Basilicata


 Where does your family’s story begin?

 We can help you find out!  We’ve stood at that crossroads of cultures ourselves, wondering where our ancestors were from, what life was like for  them, why they left... and what they left behind.  We understand your desire to connect to your roots.

 Technology is a tool, but it can’t overcome busy records clerks or non-digitized records – but we can!  We are in Basilicata, speak Italian and can

 go directly to the source for records!

 WHAT WE CAN DO FOR YOU:

  • Obtain documents (official birth, marriage or death certificates) from the town hall
  • Research lineage and family heritage using a range of resources including church, civil and on-line sources
  • Create a more complete family tree
  • Find family stories and background history
  • Look for living relatives
  • Talk to townspeople to find out more about your family’s history in that town
  • Locate your ancestors’ homes or at least the streets where they lived
  • Find out what profession they had


 We are highly experienced in researching historical documents and have cultivated rapport with the records clerks and clergy to access the

 records and find your family’s history!


​ We can put together a lovely Family History Book for you that includes your family tree, details of our research, and abstracts of records, along

 with photos of your ancestral town and background information, all bound together in a nice album.

 We are based in Basilicata; we offer genealogy research assistance and ancestry tours in Basilicata. Do you want to experience the town where  your ancestors came from... We are here to help!
