Professional research services in the records located on-site in Italy and Sicily. My next trip is scheduled for Fall 2024.

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 $900/day for an on-site research project. The cost breaks down as follows:

$400 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:

Ms. Kirkpatrick's next on-site research in Italy and Sicily, is planned for Fall 2024. See Last Trip for details about the last trip. See Italian Towns for details about the previous trips.

In the Fall, I will be researching in the Vatican Apostolic Archives regarding Prisoners of War. Then work in the Inquisition trial records held at the Archivio di Stato in Napoli for the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies. Then driving down to Sicily, hoping to find the Jewish Star of David window that remains of the synagogue now a post office in Taormina. Also hoping to get into the church records in Alia again. I also plan to work in church and provincial and town records at a few towns and cities yet to be determined. 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 book titled
American Prisoner of War Camps in Colorado and is available at Amazon in paperback format. I've beeen updating the information for presentations at various conferences and meetings as shown at
