Researching Italian Ancestry

  • Heritage Library Foundation - Hilton Head Branch 2 Corpus Christi Suite 100 Hilton Head Island, SC, 29928 United States (map)

Location: Hilton Head Branch

La Storia Della Tua Famiglia Italiana

Beginning with what you already know about your Italian family heritage, we will first discover or authenticate their town of origin in Italy. Starting with US Federal Census records we will then search for their passenger ship and retrace your Italian ancestors emigration path to the USA. Using Italian civil records we will continue the genealogical discovery of your family in Italy. We will use about a dozen research sites; some common, some not so common, to hopefully unfold generations of your unknown Italian ancestors. 

$10 for Heritage Library members; $15 for non-members
