Project rates are $800/day for an on-site research
project. The cost breaks down as follows:
- $300 for airfare to and
from Italy and travel expenses within Italy (including trains,
buses, car rental, tolls and gas) after division by the 10 client
research days on each trip;
$100 for daily lodging and food;
$400 for eight hours of research and report
writing on each client research day.
This allows enough
funds to cover expenses on weekends (when civil and church record
offices are generally closed) and travel time (10 hours by car
between Torino and Roma, another 10 hours between Roma and Sicilia
on the autostrada in addition to the mileage to each research

Kirkpatrick's next on-site research in Italy and
Sicily, is planned for October
2019. See Last Trip for details about the
last trip. See Italian Towns for details
about the previous trips.
In October, I'm planning to research in the Vatican Secret Archives, Napoli, and Pompei where I will meet with a client to tour her ancestral towns. Then on to Acri (Cosenza province), and Ferramonte, the WWII Concentration Camp at Tarsia in Cosenza province. Then to visit Rabbi Barbara at her synagogue in Serrastretta (Catanzaro province) and her expertise at the museum from the archaelogical dig at the 200 C.E. synagogue in Bova Marina (Reggio Calabria province). Then down to Sicily for work in Ravanusa in Agrigento province, Montemaggiore Belsito, and Alia in Palermo province, finishing with Mirabella Imbaccari in Catania province before flying out of the Catania Airport with it's terrific views of Mt. Etna.
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!
