ITALIAN GENEALOGICAL SERVICES
I'm Italian and live near Rome, I have a PhD in Chemical Sciences and I am the author of numerous publications and patents, I am now retired. Part of my work curriculum is present on Linkedin or Researchgate.
I searched genealogical records starting from 2000 and collected the data in this site. I've over 6.500 individuals on my tree, from 1200. I'm also the webmaster of Facebook "Cognome Davini" group and an active participant in the WIKITREE Italian Roots Project .
My research specialties are all Italian records, in particular Tuscany and Rome archives. Tracing Italy to USA, South America, Australia emigrant routes, I connect a lot of descendants with Italian origin with "cousin". I finished a course about the genealogical search (statement) and I'm member of APG.
I can do archive, genealogy, military and live relation researches, Italian to English document translation, photo restoration, village or cemetery photographies. If you need help to organize a trip in Italy to visit your ancestry town, I can suggest some tips and locate an english speaking guide. If you need Italian citizenship, I work toghether with an Internation law firm to check if you'are eligible and assist you.

You can order:
- Single Copy of a Detailed Document If you are in search of a particular document that might help fill a hole in your family tree or need a particular record, I can confirm the availability with a proposal and send you an electronic copy of the document you indicated and requested (like birth or dead certificate, immigration list, census, and so on). If not available online or the archive ask for a formal request by letter, expenses will be charged. (example and translation)
- Open Search On the basis of the data you sent, I provide you a plan of the research with delivery time and cost. I usually perform online and offline researches, in particular for 1800 – today period in Italy. In case of emigrant, the availability of USA arrival and census data will be confirmed. The final report contains copies of documents, photos, links, and so on. Report and documents are sent ONLY in electronic format. Further researches, regarding new branches discovered with the search or particular sources or documents, will be proposed.
- Genealogical tree (limited to XIXth century): As per Open search, on the basis of the data you sent, I provide you a plan of the research with a proposal of delivery time and cost. I perform a collection of the documents that concern more recent generation of the family, usually starting from 1808 (“pre-Unitarian” Civil State and Historical Archive of Italian Municipality and State Archive). The final work consists of copy of original certificates, transcriptions, pictures or photocopies and a simple report of the ancestry and a tree, that shows the direct line to you. The documents are collected in a 4 holes binder (or equivalent) and is completed by a genealogical chart. The total shipping cost is added (it depends if you prefer standard or courier). In addition to Genealogical tree on paper, you can order also an online tree archive. Only the email you indicated have access to the web archive, to protect the privacy of the data. Further researches, regarding new branches discovered with the search or particular sources or documents, will be proposed.
- Full genealogical tree: As per Open search, on the basis of the data you sent, I provide you a plan of the research with a first proposal of delivery time and cost. There is no way of predicting exactly how long I will take to view or obtain documents necessary to genealogy research: in the case of long project, I updated you every 2 weeks about the progress or the delay respect to the time scheduled. When I begin your project, I create your, private online tree, where you can access at anytime. All records and documents or new family members, will be added to the tree. The final project delivery is a volume that contains hard copies of pictures, photocopies or transcriptions of the documents found in various sources related to your ancestry, and - as example - kept at Civil State Office of the Municipality, at Parish Archives, at Diocese Archives and at State Archives, usually until second half of XVII century. In the case of Italian emigrants, documents about ships and passenger list, historical census copies or World war documents will be searched and if available will be added. The relevant part of the info contained in the documents (if necessary translated in english) will be inserted in the final research report that explains the results of the project, with the references of all documents included and the source. The book is bounded and completed with a large size genealogical chart, that includes all the family branches, and a tree, that shows the direct line to you.
