5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book May 17 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The book is a little dated but still extremely useful for genealogists researching their Italian roots. This book will give you guidance on writing to Italy for records, places to look in Italy for records besides the anagrafe or archivio di stato. The book is also a guide for translating older civil records. A great history of Italy in provided as is a guide to Italian surnames. There are lots of little jewels such as writing to a Questura for an ancestor's passport. I think this is a must have for someone researching their Italian family.

5.0 out of 5 stars This Is It! Jan. 30 2003
For those of you in search of your Italian heritage need look no further. Everything you need is right here in this relatively cheap book written by, get this, a non-Italian! Whether you just want to get your grandparents birth records from the 1890's or go all the way back to the 1700's to get your 5th great grandparents marriage record, this book will tell you how, in easy step by step instructions. Can't read or write in Italian? Mr. Cole's book does that for you, too. Don't know your Italian history? Guess what? Mr. Cole does, and he shares it with you in his book.
There are many illustrations of actual Italian records from the 1800's to going back almost 1000 years, and he explains what each is and what the records say. This author covers the history of surnames as well.
With the information in this book, it would be virtually impossible for someone who's ancestors were Italian not to discover their heritage.
I strongly recommend this book.
