Live Sessions

Presto Italia!

Lo Schiavo Genealogica launched an easy way for you to connect directly with the owner, Melanie Holtz: through “live” monthly sessions called Presto Italia! It can be viewed on our Facebook page and it also streams “live” on our YouTube channel.

On the last Friday of each month at 3 pm ET, join Melanie to learn about current Italian travel situations, general information and tips on researching Italian genealogy records, and Italian dual citizenship. We always include an opportunity to get your individual questions answered. Streams on YouTube and Facebook!

If you like to see previous sessions, you can find them here.

We would love to hear your ideas for future topics to present in this way so please let us know your ideas. Drop us a message here and be sure you use “FB Live” in the subject line.


We also launched a private Facebook group  called ItaliaGen to share best practices and tips on specific subjects!  Included will be 30-minute video sessions on information about researching Italian ancestry as well as dual citizenship resources.

We launched this special service in October with a focus on our parish records and research course and the Italian genealogy practicum.  The video in each group will provide a general overview of the topic and questions are welcome. This is a great way to interact with others interested in these subjects and support each other in your research.

This group is meant to be a private meeting place where we can come together and talk about Italian genealogy and reclaiming Italian citizenship via jus sanguinis.

If you are interested in being part of this informative offering, please send us a message and  include “FB Group” in the subject line of your message. We will send you more information about accessing the group. 


We would love to hear your ideas for future Facebook groups with a focus on Italian genealogy or citizenship!
