We will search the record depositories for your ancestors in Basilicata, Campania or Puglia. We will provide a family tree, a detailed report of our research and digital copies of any applicable records we are able to locate. Our research fee is $40 US an hour. We recommend six hours to start, as that will give us a chance to find records and piece information together for a family lineage. We will work with you and you make the decision on how much research you want completed.

Citizenship Document Requests:
The process to apply for Italian citizenship can be a long and complicated process. One of the things anyone doing this will need is one or more original Italian documents, specifically “estratto” (extract) - We can help!
We can make these requests on your behalf here in Italy. We will make a formal written request to the proper official by registered mail and follow that up with an email request. We recommend sending these original documents to you via international courier with tracking.
We cannot guarantee the results of any request that is made to Italian public offices. My Bella Basilicata is acting purely as an intermediary on your behalf and we still rely on the response of the Italian officials, who may or may not cooperate.
Document Request: $70 US, ($35 Deposit, Balance when received)
Shipping with Tracking: $90 US
We would request a deposit to confirm your schedule and payments can be made to us via PayPal or by check to our US mailing address. We will send you an itemized invoice with payment options.
