Discovering La Famiglia's Final Installment by Roslyn Torella

La Gazzetta Italiana would like to thank Roslyn Torella for her dedication to creating Discovering La Famiglia and her contributions to the column for the past four years. It is our hope that our readers have found this column insightful, useful and helpful over the years. We have had many subscribers reach out to tell us how Discovering La Famiglia aided in their genealogy search, and we cannot be more appreciative to Roslyn for this. Never fear, Roslyn is not going far! She plans to continue to be a regular contributor to La Gazzetta (you can find her in our new column “In the Cucina with La Gazzetta”). Grazie Roslyn!

It is hard to believe that I started writing this column four years ago! It has been such a pleasure and I have enjoyed sharing my research tips on how to research your Italian roots, but the time has come to retire this monthly feature. Fortunately, all my previous columns are available at in the online archives.

Below is an index of all the columns by topic in case you missed a column or want to brush up on a particular topic:
