On-Site Research

Lo Schi­a­vo Genealog­i­ca can pro­vide pro­fes­sion­al 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 at Melanie@holtzresearch.com 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.



Please con­tact us to dis­cuss your project before mak­ing pay­ment for on-site research. 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.
