Discovering your past lays out a road map for your future! In this week’s episode, we’ll prove that while reconstructing your family history might take effort, the rewards are priceless!
Podcast co-host Anthony Fasano asked the gang to get together to share their first-hand experiences discovering family history, and how seeking out and finding his own Italian relatives changed his life, as well as that of his children and future generations. The team shares their tips and tricks into how they dove deep into their family histories and how their hard work paid off in terms of unforgettable experiences in Italy that they might never have otherwise experienced. They’ll also share the moving experiences sent in by members of the Italian American Podcast’s “New Neighborhood” Membership group, revealing just how many listeners are undertaking this important research!
They’ll also shares invaluable information on where and how to find important documents, and how anyone can figure out their family history… as long as they have the passion to do so.
In true Italian American Podcast style, we veer off into a conversation on Italian and Italian American culinary traditions and how going back to the Motherland also shows us how family recipes stayed intact, despite getting passed from generation to generation. We also tackle the question “Why go back?” and offer suggestions on connecting with town historians and the value of a home-base AirBnB host.
Finally, we suggest additional resources you can tap into right from home during these long days of quarantine!
