Summer 2017

Fall 2017 Trip Planning Started !!


I'm looking forward to returning to work in Italy in November 2017 (see www.gentracer.com/nextrip.html).

Amazing Year!


The fundraising continues for a series of documentaries about Prisoners of War in America. Our non-profit partner is the Italian Center of the West, see http://www.utahculturalnews.com/ for more details.

I've been presenting a series of discussions each month. The schedule is:
August 19 - Enemy Alien Camps Across America at the Salt Lake City Public Library in Salt Lake City (210 East 400 South) at 2 pm.
September 16 - Prisoner of War Camps Across America at the Salt Lake City Public Library in Salt Lake City (210 East 400 South) at 2 pm.
October 14 - Enemy Alien Camps Across America at the Salt Lake City Public Library in Salt Lake City (210 East 400 South) at 2 pm.
November 18 - The Jewish Heritage of a Catholic Sicilian Family at the Salt Lake City Public Library in Salt Lake City (210 East 400 South) at 2 pm.

I've found a new publisher for my books on American Prisoner of War Camps. We've shifted it from one big book to lots of smaller books with many more photos. The first book in the series will probably drop in December: American POW Camps in Idaho and Utah. The next will release a month or two later: American POW Camps in Arizona and Nevada with the third a couple months later: American POW Camps in Southern California. We're working our way across the country with details and photos about each camp. I'm very excited about this series and that we're able to match the first releases so closely with the release of Red Gold.

Yes, Red Gold, a major motion picture about Italian POWs in America, is currently in production. We're VERY excited that this project, in the works for 15 years now, is finally becoming a reality. See http://www.redgoldthemovie.com/indexenglish.html for more details. Also https://www.facebook.com/RedGoldthemovie.

In November, I'm planning to research in Roccapalumba, Santa Venerina and Messina in Sicilia, Serrastretta in Catanzaro province, Roma, the Vatican Secret Archives, Pescosolido, Lucca, Firenze (Florence), Bologna, Varese Ligure in La Spezia province, Chiusa di Pesio in Cuneo province, Verona, Gargnano in Brescia province, Borgnone in Switzerland, and Milano. I'm looking forward to meeting with both American and European friends (old and new), as well as returning to favorite places and visiting towns I haven't seen before!


My book on CD titled
Sicily, Part 1 and Part 2 is now available on 2 CDs or .rar files. With a file for each town (plus many other files), it relates the history of Sicily as reflected in the photos, records and festivals of its towns. It contains over 2500 text and photo files and can be ordered at CD order.



My latest book is titled
Prisoner of War Camps Across America and is available in paperback and Kindle formats on Amazon and in Nook format on Barnes and Noble.
