Living Relatives in Italy

A typical request we receive from our customers is to know if they still have living relatives in Italy and if it’s possible to meet them.
If you are interested in knowing more about your italian family or about some branches of your family, if you are planning a trip in your ancestors homeland, our services will not disappoint you!

The procedures in this case is different compared to the historic research of the ancestors: to find your living relatives in Italy, we have to go forward in time starting from the info you have of your italian family.
The first step is to collect info about your ancestor family.
For example if your granfather left Italy to go to live abroad, you should try to reconstruct other branches of his family.
So the first step is to search for his siblings.
Our researcher will find the available records in the local archives and the research forward will start!

For the Italian privacy law, to have the authorization to search the registers of living people, you will be requested to sign a delegation to our researcher to proceed with the activities.
After contacting the officers of the town/village, we will provide you with the right form to sign.

Our local researcher will submit the request to the town hall.
In this way he will be authorized to start to search for your relatives on your behalf.
