How to start a Family History Research in Calabria

If your goal is to find more information about your italian family and your genealogy in Calabria, we may start to work on your family tree going back to the beginning of 1800s (189 is the year when civil records started in Calabria).
This is the typical way to approach the Italian genealogy.

We will provide you with copies of the original records found in the local archives: on these documents you will be able to read many info about your ancestors.

For example on birth records you will find the full name of the newborn, the exact day of birth, the names of the parents, their age and their professions in that year.
Then you will find the address where family lived (a great info if you plan to visit Calabria and your ancestors’ village!)

Then, if they were able to sign you will read their original signatures too.
