Italian Heritage

During the mass emigration from Italy between 1876 to 1976, the U.S. was the largest single recipient of Italian immigrants in the world.

 
 
 

More Italians have migrated to the United States than any other Europeans. Poverty, overpopulation, and natural disaster all spurred Italian emigration.

 
 
 

Natural disasters rocked southern Italy during the early 20th century. Mount Vesuvius erupted and buried a town near Naples. Then Mount Etna erupted. Then in 1908 an earthquake and tidal wave swept through the Strait of Messina between Sicily and the Italian mainland, killing more than 100,000 people in the city of Messina alone.

 
 
 

Many Italian immigrants never planned to stay in the United States permanently, but of course many did, they settled and raised families and now there are many American decendents who are interested in visiting the birthplace of their relatives who left Italy so many years ago.

Florinda investigates ....

A message from Florinda....

 

It was such a pleasure to meet you. I have been telling all my friends

about you and your company…

 

First I want to tell you how wonderful my trip was to find my family in Pianopoli with Michele's help in interpreting for me in a town of 2300 where no one spoke English so we couldn't have done without him - Michele was wonderful. I'm sure he was exhausted by the end of the 3 days.

 

It was definitely my dream trip.

I am including some pictures of wonderful new found family.

Florinda
