Get back to where your Family come from
This service was born away back in June 1993, by chance let's say: One day, in the afternoon, while I was waiting for some clients in front of the Grand Hotel Minerva in Rome, a young lady (she was a babysitter of an American family on vacancy in Rome) stopped asking me some information. We began to chat and she told me the story of her Grandpa, of Italian-American origin, who once started a trip to Italy from Palm Spring where he was living, in order to see his hometown again. Unfortunately due to a suddenly ill he never got back to USA. She also told me that this visit to Italy was probably her only chance to see where her Granpa was buried. Her story arused my curiosity and we arranged a meeting for the morning after, Destination Spigno Saturnia a small village 160Km south of Rome. The following day we left but once we arrived at our destination we encountered the first difficulties since the village is divided in two parts: Spigno Saturnia Inferiore and Spigno Saturnia Superiore. Which one wouldl be the right one? After some attemps we found out that Spigno Superiore was the place we were looking for, so we ventured into it and soon we found the graveyard of the city...it was closed! And the Keeper? He was on vacation. So what could we do? Climb over the fence, that's what we did and her tears of sadness became tears of joy when eventually I shout "HERE IT IS I'VE FOUND HIM" Since 2001we have been helping our clients to reconstruct the history of their Families. We give you the chance to visit the place of your forefathers and very often we manage to find the houses if still standing,where they used to live; to meet some distant relatives or even to know anecdotes about them. All this is possible thanks to our engagement and expecially because of the precious assistance given by the registry office. The employees of the registry office give us the necessary assistance to do so, by collecting information and sometimes even deciphering the calligraphy in the old dusty books where the informations used to be handwritten. Some of the place we just visited are: Spigno Saturnia-CastelPizzuto-Atri-Teggiano-Sacco-Bugnara-Venafro- Ripi-Caianiello-Anzio-Cassino-Celano-Sezze-Atina.
