About Our Family Research
I've wanted to start a family search for many years, but never had time to look into it. I regret not taking the time to sit down with my mother when her memory was intact, to write down facts that she had stored away, not only about her family, but also she had much information about my father's family history...unfortunately we don't have good records of that information - only a few sketchy notes, and now it's too late to confirm any of it, because at 92 my poor mother has no recall. But now with the internet resources, it might be easier than it used to be to track family history. I'm looking forward to the challenge of finding family history, italian roots, and I'm also interested to see if there are any living relatives still in Italy or Sicily.
