Is it possible to know where descendants of Lucani emigrated from Potenza Province are today?
After 150 years of emigration from Basilicata, the answer is quite difficult.
At ItalianSide, working with statistical data about our readers, we tried to help to solve this problem.
We started from this point: if someone comes to our Internet Site looking for info about an Italian town, a village, family, genealogy, ancestry tours or tradition, it is because he is connected in some way with that town! Every month on ItalianSide.com we receive thousands of requests coming from all over the world, seeking info about these subjects in Basilicata.
Of course this is only an attempt to map where Lucani from Potenza are today:our experiment has no scientific foundation but it’s an empirical proof about the spread of Lucani in the world.
Would you like to see the map of the readers of ItalianSide.com interested in Potenza Province? (it will be….surprising for you!)
Some useful info:
1) Please remember that it could take some seconds before markers are shown on the map (thousand of markers are plotted in real time!)
2) Map is updated daily: now it shows statistics from July 1, 2013 to yesterday.
3) At the moment the map shows only last 10000 entries in our statistics.
4) Only one marker is shown for each town in case more Lucani are in the same town.
