On-Site Research

Lo Schiavo Genealogica, LLC can provide professional Italian genealogical research services on-site anywhere in mainland Italy, Sicilia, Sardinia, the Republic of San Marino, or any formerly Italian area of the world. There are many Italian archives that are not accessible from a distance, especially if you wish extensive work on your ancestors.

Prices will vary depending on how extensive the research needs to be and will include travel expenses from our office in southern Italy. Please contact us for a quote, providing your research goals, a detailed summary of your previous research, and any documents relevant to the research.

Your information will then be evaluated and we will work together to define a research plan that will make the most of our time in the town of your ancestors.  Most of the on-site research will be performed by Michele Giove, manager of our Italian office, who resides in Italy.  Michele is a native Italian and has experience with all types of Italian documents.

Having a researcher on the ground in Italy helps to decrease a client’s project expense. On average, most projects cost around $700 per day, which includes all expenses.

Appointments need to be made and occasionally access to an archive is denied. However, the majority of time we have no problem accessing the records.

  1. I need help in finding my great grand parents on my grandmothers side. I already have my dual citizenship and have all the records on my paternal side.
    I believe that they were born in Naples Italy. Is this something that you can help me with? Grazie mille,

  2. A few years ago, my husband and I went to Sicily where my paternal grandmother and great aunts came from. While in Taormina, we took a detour to Scaletta Zanclea, their home town. Coincidentally, a friend of mine here has relatives in Scaletta as well and his cousin was the administrator of the town. I was unprepared, but with the info I had, his coworkers looked up some of the birth and baptism records of my family. My sister and I are going again this October. We speak no Italian and Gabrielle is no longer in Sicily to help us. What is the best way for us to get information at the town hall in Scaletta? How do we go about finding someone who can go with us to translate? We are also planning a day to go to Castellemare del golfo on the other side of the island. How can we connect with someone who can get us there and translate for us!
