Italian Ancestors Genealogy Project
First of all, I would like to thank Nuccia of Calabria Exchange and James Bianco of Carini Exchange for convincing me to do this project and for teaching me what I needed to know to actually do it. James website for Carini is the model for this site.
Francesco Fullone has graciously shared photographs of the original church registers of the Church of Santa Maria della Neve in Santa Maria La Castagna and photographs of the church and town. He has also shared the Catasto of Montalto, Vacarizzo, San Fili and San Vincenzo La Costa so this website can present them as a resource for all descendants of of those areas. I cannot thank Francesco enough for his kindness and hard work.
