Professional research services in the records located on-site in Italy and Sicily. My next trip is scheduled for May 2021.

The completed report includes a log of locations and records searched and an analysis of the information found and copies or extracts of documents located. On-site research can also include extracts from local phone books or photos of the area as requested. To see some comments from clients, please see To see a sample report, please see

A free research proposal is available upon request, please state details concerning ancestor(s) and goal(s) desired from research project.

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 location).

Rates are payable in advance, payment can be made through the PayPal icon below:

Or, payment can be made by sending check or money order for $800.00 (US) to:

Ms. Kirkpatrick's next on-site research in Italy and Sicily, is planned for May 2021. See Last Trip for details about the last trip. See Italian Towns for details about the previous trips.

In May, I'm planning to research in the Vatican Secret Archives, some of the Italian WWII Concentration Camps for Jews and others. Then to work in the church, provincial and town records at other locations and 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 more research work before flying to London in time for RootsTech London where I hope to speak.

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 and is now available on 2 CDs. 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
American Prisoner of War Camps in Colorado and is available at Amazon in paperback format.
