My Bella Basilicata
Genealogy research, ancestral tours, trip planning assistance in southern Italy
Based in Basilicata, we offer on-site genealogy research, document procurement, and family history assistance. We are based in Basilicata and offer research in Campania and Puglia, in addition to Basilicata. Our services include: obtaining documents, family lineage research, locating living family relations, uncovering family stories and local lore, finding your ancestors’ homes where they lived, and putting the information together for you. We can help you come and make the most of your genealogy journey but planning an itinerary, accompanying you to your ancestral town, and translating for you in the local offices and on the street.
Our research experience and local contacts mean we will find the information you’re looking for! We will help make your ancestral journey a reality with a perfectly-planned “back to your roots” trip so you can walk the streets, taste the foods and see the sights your ancestors knew so well.
We don’t just look online, we go to the town hall, the church and provincial archives to get the most complete history possible. We knock on doors, make phone calls, talk to townspeople, and follow up with records clerks!
