Most people may not realize it, but they could actually be citizens of Italy from birth. Italy requires you to prove your Italian ancestry with proper documentation to apply for and obtain Italian citizenship and does not require you to renounce your current citizenship(s), which allows you to hold two or more passports and be a dual-citizen or “multi”-citizen.

Italians in the Pacific Northwest

17-Feb-2024 Meeting
Welcome to Italian Genealogy Let’s explore the world of Italian genealogy together, one person at a time.
ZOOM Meeting
Topic:     Italians in the Pacific Northwest
presented by               Tessa Floreano (Author)
(https://www.tessafloreano.com/) When:     17-Feb-2024, Saturday (corrected the year)
Time:      
1:30 PM – 3:30 PM (PST)

Italians in the Pacific Northwest From hardscrabble days as homesteaders and farmers in the 1880s to becoming successful entrepreneurs of the postwar boom generation, Italians settled and later thrived in Idaho, Oregon, and Washington. ​ Italians labored in several industries, including railway tie hacking in Idaho, coal mining in Black Diamond, logging in Aberdeen, canning salmon in Astoria, terra-cotta and brick manufacturing in Taylor, and growing onions in Walla Walla. Those who ventured into business later grew notable local companies such as DeLaurenti Food & Wine, Pacific Food Imports, Oberto Sausage, Napoleon Oil, and La Panzanella Crackers. ​ Further still, Italians in the area contributed to inventions from the collapsible crab pot and trawl nets to the atomic bomb, the vaudeville circuit, the Pellegrini bean, and one-of-a-kind accordions. Italian pioneers in the Pacific Northwest also have a connection to Hemingway, Elvis, President Kennedy, Mother Cabrini, and the Loprinzis, the “strongest family in America.” ​ Today, over 300,000 Italian Americans call this region home, and it is the author’s hope that this book highlights the contributions of many Italians, known and unknown.

This workshop might be the right fit for all whose roots stem from Italy and who are serious about genealogy and Dual Citizenship. Italian-native professional genealogist Alessandro Bovino from Benevento, Campania, Italy, will share details about how your Italian family tree can be brought up to the next level when using on-site records that remain yet unexplored, like notarial documents, military files, or dowry records. Open to the expert as to the novice alike, the lecture will let you understand the invaluable worth of Italian local records – right from an on-site Italian professional’s perspective. A detailed insight into how to go about qualifying for Dual Italian Citizenship will also be offered as the final part of the program to make for any specific questions the audience may want to pose in that regard.

Biography
Alessandro Bovino is a native Italian professional genealogist and family history speaker. He is a member of the Association of Professional Genealogists and was once a Host/Genealogist on the renowned series “Who do You Think You Are?” for the Swedish TV format.  He is also the president and founder of the family history firm ‘Bella Italia Genealogy’ based in his native town Benevento, Southern Italy. Everything started back in 2006, when he suddenly got very curious about certain family lines he had never thought much about.  It was then that his father told him about a great-uncle who came to America through Ellis Island and this spurred him on to discover who he is and where he comes from.  Since then, as an Italian-born researcher, he has been thrilled to meet second cousins in the States who had waited for decades to greet their Italian family.  It is with this spirit of curiosity and adventure that Alessandro decided to found Bella Italia Genealogy as an exclusively Italy-based genealogy research, ancestral tour, and Dual Citizenship company. By using records and documents available only through on-site research, he aims to make yours a one-of-a-kind genealogy experience.

Italian Interest Group Finding 9 Types of Italian Military Records

Italian Interest GroupOctober 2023 Meeting Special Webinar Welcome to Italian GenealogyLet’s explore the world of Italian genealogy together, one person at a time. ZOOM MEETING
TOPIC:     9 Types of Italian Military Records and Where to Find Them
                         
presented by Ann Tatangelo
WHEN:     Saturday, 21-Oct-2023
TIME:       SPECIAL TIME
                10:00 AM – 12:00 PM (PDT)
                  7:00 PM –  9:00 PM (Italy time)
 The history of the military in Italy is complex due to the fact that Italy wasn’t even a country until 1860 And was dominated by several foreign nations until Garibaldi led his army to victory and the Unification of the country (well, most of it) in 1860.Since my personal research focus is south Italy I am going to concentrate on that for the history part. But the presentation will apply to the whole country.I plan to cover Italy’s military history, its divisions, the Leva and other lists, the role of the military, service and discharge records, and Military Tribunals.
I’m looking forward to meeting you all and hope there will be time for questions. Presenter: Ann Tatangelo BIO
Ann Tatangelo has had three different surnames and lived in three different countries. Born Ann Kenyon in Lancashire, England, she emigrated to Canada with her husband Geoff Livesey in 1967. After Geoff’s death in 1998, she met Vincenzo Tatangelo who introduced her to his home in the ‘wonderland’ or Paese della meraviglia of Sora, Italy where she fell in love with the culture, the food and the history.Ann’s earliest experiences and adjustments to life in Italy, brought her face-to-face with Italian life, death and even the early days of a blossoming Italian pop star, which she recounted in her first book Annoying the Saints: Stories of MyLife in Italy. After permanently relocating to Italy, she soon began researching her husband’s family tree to keep busy and discovered a love and talent for sifting through genealogical records that evolved into Angel Research and Genealogical Services. Twenty years after founding Angel Research, Ann has compiled her insight into the various legal documents and genealogical hurdles of the area into two easy-to-read handbooks for the Provinces of Frosinone and Latina that will allow amateur genealogists from all over the world to connect their ancestors in Italy.
