SLIG 2025: Italian Genealogical Research, Methodologies, and Sources

Join Suzanne Russo Adams, MA, AG in her course during SLIG 2025.

“Open my heart and you will see
Graved inside of it, 'Italy'.”
         – Robert Browning, English playwright and poet

Italy is a land loved by many for its rich history and culture. Although the physical land covering modern day Italy has centuries old history, Italy is a young country made up of many states brought together by the Proclamation of the Kingdom of Italy in 1861. This course is designed to help students understand how some of that rich history has shaped the sources and methodologies to research record sources in Italy - civil registration, Catholic parish records, military, and census. Students will learn to recognize, locate, research, and analyze key documents to trace Italian family histories. Topics will also include methodologies used to research in big cities, DNA, Latin, handwriting, notarial records, and emigration. Students will have optional homework assignments to solidify learning.
