WOW!!!!! I am on my way out of town for 3 weeks with limited internet access so THANK YOU!!! I'll print everything out at the hotel and will bring it with me. A friend is bringing my ma in so thank you for that. I've already given your contact info to a friend with Sicilian roots too. I never would have been able to gather this information on my own. - Nancy in Jacksonville, FL

I received the packet of information - and it's truly amazing. Thank you so much for gathering all of this information. I can't wait to share this information with my mom who will be truly excited to see her dad's family information. - Bob in Washington D.C.

Thanks so much for all of your help & sharing your knowledge!! It makes me feel better to know a little bit more about my grandmother. That has always been a burning desire of mine. Kathy thanks again & we will probably need you again soon. Take care! - Sandy in PA

This was a very pleasant way to start my weekend. I can't believe the incredible amount of information in this report. The first two marriage records alone added an entire additional generation of eight people to my grandmother's paternal family lines. I'm having a great time adding all the new information to my family tree software database and updating all of the charts I maintain. - Stephen M. in MA

Just wanted to let you know that I received Ermanno's baptism certificate today. I was able to send it off to the Italian Embassy today in the hope that my application for citizenship can be finalised. Without your expert help I would not have been able to realise my dream. Once again my heartfelt thanks and thanks for making a difference in our lives. God bless and best wishes for the future. - Pauline W. in Austrailia

I received your e-mail report on my genealogy. Many thanks! Your work was thorough and very professional. Great job! You solved many mysteries, including the name of the twin who died, uncovering many children of Alfonso Caputo that I knew nothing of, and you were able to take my Caputo line back another generation. Great investigation! - Gene C. in CA

Kathy, I am AMAZED at what you unearthed! You are a true researcher. All I can say is WOW and THANK YOU so much for all your work. I will print this out to read, absorb and share with the family. - David L. in PA

Using research I provided, Mark was able to put together a reunion with his Sicilian relatives. - Mark in Atlanta, GA

Wow, wow, wow! I can't thank you enough! You really came through, I'm very excited at what you've found. - George G. in CA

Your research yielded an extensive family tree on both my grandfathers side and my grandmothers side. You then did a mailing to about 70 people and we got a hit on my grandfathers side, and ultimately, the relationship blossomed into about 40-50 people, that I ultimately went last summer and introduced myself and my wife. It was one of the greatest experiences of my life. - Phil B. in Italy

You have taken my research further back than I believed would be possible - thank you. Dan D. in Australia

As with the first report this is beautiful. I appreciate your work and look forward to working with you in the future. This is very exciting and I know my family will enjoy it as much as I do. - Larry T. in LA

Thanks so much, Kathy! I love learning about these people. Its fun to know about one's family. - Robert B. in NY

I have finally fully digested all the material which you accumulated for me in Italy and presented to me in a highly professional manner. I couldn't be more pleased with the results, and my wife is especially excited (it is, after all, her ancestors that we are pursuing). - Ted V. in PA

I just opened my computer, and what a fantastic surprise from you. I thank you with all my heart. I am so overjoyed to read and learn of the ancestors from both sides of my Mom's family. I will e-mail you again later in the day, after I re read it all again, as I am so excited about this all. You have done a magnificent job for me. Thank you again. - Rosemary S. in NY

I cannot even begin to tell you how wonderful this is to me and my family. You have done an absolutely beautiful job. I wish my grandmother and mother were still here to share this. I know they would have loved it. Still I have a lot of the family who I know will appreciate it as much as I do. I am looking forward to doing more research with you in the future. I cannot thank you enough for such a magnificent job. - Larry T. in LA

I just received the documents in the mail and am overwhelmed by the impressive amount of information you have located. This is so much more than I expected, and the level of documentation is exceptional. I have never used a professional researcher before and I hesitated for months before deciding to give this a try. My only regret now is that it took me so long make my decision. It's really exciting to have all this new information to add to my family history and to share with my living Cerchione relatives in the Boston area. - Steve M. in MA

This is great. I can't tell you how excited everyone in my family - young to old were with the family tree! It was amazing - I am so happy I could do this for my family -- mostly for the first generation Americans (all in there 80's), and for the youngest - and future generations. Also, my Aunt and Uncle on the Speziale side will be very excited to get the update on Maria Di Francisco. I could not have done any of this with out your help. - Linda S. in TX

Hello Kathy, just a short note to thank you for the wonderful information you discovered about my ancestors in Sicily. It is obvious that you did a great deal of work and you compiled it in a professional and interesting manner. I will share it with my brothers and two of my cousins. I appreciate the packet of valuable information you sent me, and I will treasure it for years to come. Of course, if I have any further questions about my ancestry, I will gladly contact you. For years, we have all wondered about the different stories we heard about the "old country" and now we have some concrete evidence in hand. Thanks so much. - Frank D. in NJ

Your report and documents were wonderful. The content confirmed much of the info I had gathered and presented me with some exciting new facts. - Jane S. in SC

I am both astounded at the number of records and very pleased and excited at what you have uncovered. - Philip B. in PA

Your packet and pictrues arrived in yesterday's mail. Many thanks. I sat and watched the photos. What a mystery! I have not heard either the di Domenico or Rizzo names before. There is another of the untold stories that drive me--however futally-- to want to know people's lives. That's why, I guess, literature exists: to fill in the holes, fill up the whole, of lives that history and even genealogy can't quite do. SO off we go to imagination land. At any rate, thank you for all you do--for all of us. - Chris G. in NY

Thank you for interesting and exciting results! - Jim P. in RI
