Researching Italian Ancestors

March 16 @ 9:00 AM - 11:00 AM AEST

This session will cover how to start your Italian family research. It begins with finding Australian arrivals and then moves back to researching in Italy. You’ll learn about the records held in Italy – how to find them, and how to read them. These include records created by civil authorities, the Roman Catholic church, and cemetery records. We’ll also discuss how to navigate Italy’s complicated history to find the right archive, and look at various online resources.


Charlotte Sale:

Charlotte has a long professional background in research, organisational change, and communication. More importantly, she is the holder of family stories for her family, near and far, and regularly swaps granny snaps with her first, second and third cousins in Australia, the UK, Italy, Spain, and South Africa. Completing several courses on researching in Italy with the National Institute for Genealogical Studies, Charlotte honed her skills in accessing Italian family history resources online. She also worked with an Italian genealogist, obtaining copies of original records tracing her family in Lombardy (northern Italy) back to 1700. She visited Italy just before COVID, visiting and researching the lives of her Italian forbears. She is a regular presenter on a variety of topics for both GSQ and QFHS as well as others.
