Feedbacks and Testimonials
Hello, I am writing to let everyone know how great Italianside.com is. My name is Jillian. I was surfing the web one night looking for information about my ancestor who came to America from Quadri Italy. This is a town in Chieti Province. I look through Italianside.com website and saw all the amazing thing that they had to offer. I decided to send a email to see if anyone could assist me with my search.
Within 24 hours I had a email from them. I explained my situation: I only had a town in Abruzzo to go with.
They help me to contact the Municipality in Quadri.
We received a Birth Certificate for my Great Grandfather and Death Certificate for His Parents. Also we received a family tree.
I want to Thank ItalianSide. They help me with stuff, I could not figure out by myself. We have a bond now. I will never forget what they have done for me. I would suggest anyone looking for your Italian Roots. To search and ask questions on Italianside.com. They help with whatever questions you have.

Hi,I wanted to write and tell you how wonderful my experience with Italianside.com was.
My great-grandparents came from Morolo, Italy to America.
I had been trying to research my Italian roots for over a year and I kept coming across this Italianside.com website.
I gave them all the information I had on my Great Grandfather which was only that I heard he came from Morolo and what I thought was the correct Italian spelling of his name and the birthdate.
They helped me to contact the Municipality in Morolo who came back without any information.This did not stop ItalianSide.
They decided perhaps my spelling was incorrect so we wrote again to the Municipality. I received a response within 48 hours and yes, ItalianSide was absolutely right, the spelling I had given was wrong.
The municipality was able to provide us now with my great-grandfathers birth record, his full Italian name with the correct spelling and even his parents names.
I would never have been able to find any of this information without ItalianSide. I cannot thank Italianside.com enough for what they have found for me.
Thank you again and look forward to working with you in the near future !

I have just received very comprehensive and detailed reports about my ancestors who lived in Ari, Abruzzo at the turn of the last century. They came to live in Rome in the 1890s and one daughter married an Italian but died soon after. The only clue we had was on her gravestone in the English Cemetery in Rome that her husband was from Ari. Italianside did a terrific job in tracing the ancestors and uncovering a fascinating history of the family who were well known doctors. The only son of the marriage went to live in England in the 1920s and we will now try to trace his family. Thanks so much to Michele and the team for their dedicated and detailed research which now helps to fill the blank hole about that side of our family.
