ITALIAN GENEALOGICAL RESEARCH



FINDING ITALIAN ROOTS
The Complete Guide for Americans - John Philip Colletta
From BOOKLIST - 10/15/93
The largest wave of Italian immigrants to the U.S. was at the turn-of-the-century, making the 1910, 1920 and 1930 censuses invaluable; but Colletta considers every angle of research, and one of the best aspects of his guide is his full listing of reference works and genealogical collections. The bulk of his book is devoted to research in Italy, where local repositories assume importance; Colletta is rather amusing here, describing the general indifference to genealogy in Italy and the difficulty in dealing with comune--essentially, town hall--officals.



A GENEALOGIST'S GUIDE TO DISCOVERING YOUR ITALIAN ROOTS
How to find and record your unique heritage - Lynn Nelson
One of the best out for overall Italian Genealogy Research ...
The book focuses on "using Italian vital records to climb your family tree" ... 146 pages of lots of where to start and what to look for, and how to compare documents for validity ... she dicusses Italian naming traditions ... well written and a good research tool.

This is the Bible of genealogy for U.S. research!
If you don't have THE SOURCE, get it. This is the best reference book for discovering all of the sources available throughout the U.S. for genealogical reserach.

Ibardos@Sover - 03/02/97 - Rating=10
Authentic, comprehensive and pragmatic cookbook.
I'm a second generation Hungarian who grew up on down-home Hungarian cooking. This cookbook has all of my favorites from simple dishes you can whip up in minutes to the best of Hungarian cuisine. If you are of Hungarian descent you must have this book. If you have never had Hungarian food, buy this book, pick a recipe at random and enjoy.
