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 travel restrictions, general information and tips about researching Italian ancestry records, political jurisdictions and how they affect the archives and where to find the records. She always ends the session with a Q & A, providing an opportunity to get your individual questions answered.
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.
For the Love of Italy – Happy Hour with Melanie
Join us each 2nd Friday of the month on Zoom at 6 pm ET for a fun conversation about all things Italian. Melanie will share photos and stories about her visits to Italy, interview special guests, and other fun activities. This is an interactive virtual gathering, so be sure to bring a favorite glass of wine and your own love story about Italy to share! Please contact Melanie for link. This will also “live” stream on our YouTube channel.
We would love to hear your ideas for future Facebook groups with a focus on Italian genealogy or citizenship.
