    I have been doing the family tree for many years and will FINALLY be heading to San Giorgio in September. Please tell me the best way to access records there? Is there an office or contact name that I can speak with when I arrive? Do you know if there would be a cost to looking at records? Many members of my Sorbara family immigrated from there in the early 1900’s and going there will be a dream come true. thanks Vikki

  4. Stephen says:

    I have done quite a bit of tree building on my ancestors from San Giorgio, however there seems to be a gap in the records after 1864 in the on line archives from San Giorgio. Can you tell me if those records are electronically available in some other place?

    Your help or guidance is appreciated.

    Hello, I have been trying to find my grandfather’s side of the family for a while now. Specifically, I know that his grandmother Caterina Giovannazze (later Maio) was born in San Giorgio Morgeto in September of 1878 (or thereabouts) before moving (presumably with family) to Canada. I do not have her parents names, nor any listed siblings, nor any information about their voyage. Any information you could give me would be appreciated – I am currently a student and do not have the resources to further this search on my own. Grazie.
