    We are thinking of travelling to Isola Delle Femmmine next year to search for my ancestors records. I believe that my great grandfather, Salvatore Troja was born in 1849 and lived in Isola Delle Femmmine until he emigrated.

    What would be the best way to proceed when we arrive? Would visiting parish churches give us access to records and would the archives be of any use?
