Benvenuto, miei cugini! Welcome, my cousins!

This site contains my ongoing Family Tree research. If you've ever visited or ever want to visit Italy, don't miss the Italian Honeymoon photos. Just for fun, the Bugs Bunny database can help you locate a particular cartoon by its description, director, year, or other characters.

I'm always eager to find new cousins, no matter how distant. If any of the last names or town names on this site seem familiar to you, write to me at diann@forthecousins.com.

Attention Descendants of Colle Sannita, Benevento, Italy

I have created two searchable lists of every single available vital record for the town. The documents span 1809–1942 with some gaps. Search for your ancestor's name and follow the instructions to recreate the URL where you will find the image. Click to enlarge the image, then right-click to download the enlarged image.

Now Offering Italian Ancestry Services

I love Italian vital records!
