I love books! In my office I have a small personal library dedicated to Tyrolean culture and history. Our online Family Bookstore is one way that I share my genealogy research and love of books with you.
This past week I did a complete update of the Bookstore. Now you can access it from the main menu found at the top of the website. All dead links and books that are no longer available have been removed. Plus I have added many new categories, filled with interesting book titles, most of which I have personally read.
There’s something for everyone under our new category listings:
- Tyrolean Culture and History
- Trentini American Non-Fiction
- Family Legacy
- Trentini American Fiction
- Tyrolean Communities in USA
- DNA Testing and Genetic Genealogy
- Genealogy Research
- Genealogy Fiction (Love this new genre of literature!)
Come by for a visit at the Genetti Family Bookstore and browse our virtual bookshelves!
Our Links section has just been updated! For all you genealogy buffs, or those just fascinated with Tyrolean history and culture, you’ll find this list to be a valuable resource. To locate just scroll down any page on our website and you’ll see the “Links” list in the right hand column, right below “Archives”.
All links have been checked and updated, plus several informative websites added. Here are two that I know you’ll enjoy –
Val di Non to USA:
Discovering our ancestors who left Val di Non for a job or better life in America.
Researched and published by Elaine Erspamer Marchant, this website is truly a work of love! Elaine’s family is from Fondo (just down the road from Castelfondo) and she has made it a mission to categorize as many immigrants as possible who came from Val di Non. This is a fantastic resource for family surnames!
Trentino Family History Links:
Resources specific to Trentino Family History Research
According to genealogist Lynn Serafinn, “this is a new list of resource links specific to the province of Trento (aka Trentino)”. You might know Lynn from her popular column in Filo Magazine called Genealogy Corner. Living in England, Lynn specializes in genealogy research for Trentini descendants, with the majority of her clients being Americans. A frequent researcher at the archives located in the city of Trent, Lynn is certainly the person to hire if you want deep and thorough research into your Tyrolean family tree. In this new section just added to her extensive website, Lynn shares many research tools for Trentini ancestry. She also includes The Genetti Family Genealogy Project under the Family History Blog section of her list! Plus one more interesting point – Lynn has a Genetti ancestor from Castelfondo in her family tree! That’s right, Lynn is a distant cousin to our family! Our common ancestor predates baptismal records, but we believe our closest shared ancestor lived sometime around 1500. Thanks again Lynn for creating such a valuable resource and for including our family website! Make sure you check out the entire Trentino Genealogy website as it is filled with informative articles, personal stories and photographs.
