    I can highly recommend hiring Ann Tatangelo to undertake a search for your ancestors’ records in Central and Southern Italy.

    I starting searching for my Grandfather Francesco Minchella’s place of birth over 10 years ago. I knew he had emigrated to the UK from a southern Italian town but where? None of his records showed his actual place of birth. I searched endlessly over many years without success. I finally posted a message on Italiangenealogy.com with the family’s details and Ann replied saying she had a Minchella family census from Villa Latina which looked to be my family. It was my family! If Ann hadn’t sent me this document no doubt I would still be searching now. She supplies a translation of the documents as well.

    Ann’s extensive knowledge of genealogical matters means that you can ask her questions about any aspect of your family tree research and she can point you in the right direction. She will advise you of any online records that you can download directly yourself or find at the Latter Day Saints family history centres.

    With Ann’s help my family tree has grown enormously!

      I would add that my most recent search was for a member of the family tree who was a foundling. These birth records are usually very hard to find but Ann sent me copies of census documents for the family and from these I was able to find his date of birth and town of origin. She told me his birth record would be available online and two days later I had found and downloaded it for my tree. From my initial enquiry about his birth to having his birth record in my possession in less than a week – impressive!

    Ann I love your emails. I think because it is like running into an old friend who knew your ancestors and can tell you stories about them in a way that reads somewhat like a mystery book. You can see glimpses of the everyday lives of these relatives for which I would have otherwise have no other hope in learning about. I would love to have the gift you have which allows you to help folks piece together their history…. Awesome.

    Ann has been researching my family history and has thusfar provided me with information going back 5 generations. At the same time, she helped me obtain documents from the Comune di Sora that I desperately needed for another project but had been unable to obtain on my own. I very highly recommend her services. I wasn’t able to provide her with very much information about my family to start with, yet she was able to provide me with a wealth of information that nobody in my American family was aware of. My quest is to find relatives on my grandfather’s side that may still be remaining in Sora. Even though many of the branches of our family tree did not bear fruit, Ann persists and searches for another limb!

    Please feel free to contact me any time if you have any questions. In the meantime, I wish you much luck with your search!

    I can give a very positive reference pertaining to Ann Tatangelo. I engaged her services to do research for me, as she lives near where my ancestors came from and I live in America. I was so pleased that Ann was able to go back many generations on ALL of my family lines (sometimes as far back as 9 generations!). She compiled a very professional report for me and also provided me with copies of some historical documents (i.e. birth, marriage and death records). I highly recommend her services, as she is very trustworthy (i.e. no danger of paying her and then getting nothing in return). I was able to pick my family history up in person when I visited Sora this past September and I must say on top of the fine work she performed, her and her husband were a pleasure to meet.

    To give a reference for Ann is the easiest job I have had to do today and as an employer of a large number of staff I do this all the time.I contacted Ann from the Web about 12 months ago and gave her a brief of what I wanted i.e. some background on my family that came from Sora.I have got from Ann more that I ever expected, back about 8 or 9 generations with full history plus a history of Sora which she just gave me without request. She and Enzo have driven to villages close by to follow up close family leads and met some distant relatives we still have in Sora.I hope, in fact will, meet Ann and her family when we visit Sora soon and she has agreed to show us round and act as guide. One thing I have deduced is that she likes her work, helping people, and her commitment is total. What is for sure is that she is very good at it and in my personal view, as an English speaking resident in Sora she works far to cheaply for the results she achieves.Good luck in your searching

    Ann is the BEST Italian genealogist/researcher for English speakers. Her familiarity with Italian culture, history, and language and her ability to translate into English are invaluable. Her interpretations add important context and details to historic documents, and her fee structure and location are flexible and convenient for genealogists and non-researchers alike. Ann’s expertise about Italian foundlings and her investigative abilities led her to solve our nearly 175-year-old family mystery that I had been unable to deduce after 15 years of my own research. I don’t know how to thank her enough for all of this!
