Latest News: Kathy presented at RootsTech on 2-4 March 2023. The event is now virtual at This is a FREE conference for all! I presented "Enjoying Italian Research Abroad" and "Finding Immigration Journeys to America From Italy". I shared the research process and the sources available for documenting and/or disproving family stories. This enables the discovery of the even more amazing truth of their lives from the present into the past.

I will be presenting "Italian Concentration Camps in World War II at the International Conference on Jewish Genealogy in London on 30 July-3 August 2023. I will describe the 57 known camps run by the Fascist government in Italy and their wide range of prisoner treatment.

I plan to return to Italy for research from 24 October to 14 November 2023.

Kathy Kirkpatrick loves doing Italian genealogical research here, and in Italy. She also does military research in Italy, United States, Vatican City, and the rest of Europe. Videos of previous presentations are located at and at my YouTube GenTracer channel.

Jack Cook passed away on 25 February 2015. He is missed for his expertise in German, English, & Scottish records & research. He is missed more as the calming center of our universe, with his deep insights, and dry wit.

Christine Saffell passed away on 23 January 2023. She is missed for her ability to enjoy life to the fullest. Her ashes will be scattered around the world at places she loved and places she hoped to visit. She was our "Adventuring Genealogist" who worked in many European countries as well as the US. Her research notes on WWI POWs and other topics will become the "Christine Saffell Collection" at the Fort Douglas Museum Library in Salt Lake City.
