We are Italians, father and son, and we have been living ALL our lives, from our births, in Italy,
until about five years ago, when we did move from Italy to U.S.A.!
Here below we are Giving you the Step-by-Step Instructions to Find your ITALIAN Family Ancestors
Places of Birth, and your Living Relatives in ITALY:
1- Please, Go to "ELENCHI InWind Italy On Line" really unique Web Site
(http://elenco.iol.it/elencotel/public/RicercaOmonimie.jsp), that is available only in Italian
Language (but do not worry, in case you do not speak Italian, because now we give you all the
Indications to use it)!
2- Write the Family Name you are Searching (one at a time), in the "cognome" (that means, "last
name / surname") box, leaving blank the "nome" (that means, "first name") box (so that you will
find everyone with that Family Name, no matter which the first name is!), and click on "Trova"
(that means, "Find") button! (If, instead, you want to know how many, and where people with the
SAME First AND Last Name, are living in Italy now, write BOTH of them - that is, the Last Name /
Surname in the "cognome" box, AND the First Name in the "nome" box).
3- A message will appear, saying how many people with that Family Name are living in Italy, and a
Map of Italy will appear, under the message (in case the Map will not appear, that means no one
with that Family Name is listed to live in Italy now, or your ISP does not support their System
(you can use the local library computer, in that case)!
4- Click on the Map, moving the arrow (cursor) to the region (area) you are looking for, and
clicking on it: a list of provinces in that region, where people with that Family Name are living,
will come out!
5- Click on each province's name listed, and a list of towns in each province listed, where they
are living, will come out! They are the Prospective Towns of Birth of your Ancestors in Italy!
6- Click on each town's name listed, and the first and last names / surnames, addresses, and
telephone numbers of people with that Family Name will come out! They are your Prospective Living
Relatives in Italy!
7- Now you have to contact them, writing Informal and Personal Letters IN ITALIAN LANGUAGE (if you
do not speak Italian, check the "Italian Information and Translations" Page in our Web Site), with
ALL Information and Details, asking if they are related to you, and to your Italian Family, so
helping you to build your Italian Family Tree!
"...It Is More Blessed To Give Than To Receive..."!
Thank You Very Much! Keep in Touch!
Your Italian Friends,
Carlo and Davide Tognoni
