Finding Italian Roots – Second Edition – 30% Off Through Thursday, May 15, 2014

Italians, like so many other Europeans, emigrated in droves to the United State. The main reason for emigrating was economical. In fact, very few Italians came to the New World during the colonial period. Italians didn’t come in any large numbers until the 1870 and 1880s. Then, between 1890 and 1924 economic conditions in Italy pushed migration into the Millions. Many of those coming in the earlier years went into the deep south or west to California to work the field and start vineyards. Later, as economic condition worsened, more came to the industrialized cities to work the steal, train and large factories. Some went to Minnesota and Colorado to work the mines.

Descendents of Italian immigrants often have a difficult time researching their immigrant ancestors. Then, as with anyone else crossing an oceans in search of their ancestors, finding records in another language and historical culture can be even more daunting. Fortunately, there are books, like Finding Italian Roots, written by professionals to help researchers find their ancestors, both at home and abroad.

John Philip Colletta wrote the first edition of Finding Italian Roots in 1993. He prepared the book in response to what he saw as a great need to help a growing body of Italian American descendents turned genealogists. This book takes the issue at hand by cleanly separating, but covering, searching family both within the United States as well as tracing family records back to Italy and searching Italian resources.

Chapter 1 gets the research process started, with chapters 2 and 3 describing a wealth of U.S. based records. Then chapters 4 through 6 examine both civil and religious resources in Italy, covering both historical and modern records. Chapter 7 add practical suggestions straight from the author’s own experiences. There is also a glossary of Italian terms at the end of the book.

The book is filled with illustrations and documents, along with step-by-step instructions, point-by-point explanations, and numerous specific examples. Colletta is easy to read, with clear and concise details and explanations. John Philip Colletta is a language professor turned genealogist. He is also a very popular speaker, where his “speeches are famous for their clarity, humor, wit, and warmth.”
