It is with great pleasure that I introduce my last Campania blogger as part of this September’s Sunday Shout-out feature. Did you think you had discovered all the Campania bloggers out there? Think again! Let me introduce you to the italyMONDO! Blog, where you can read about Italian lifestyle, culture, news, traditions, food, wine and so much more. Let me also introduce you to Peter, the president of italyMONDO! and truly one of the most passionate, enthusiastic and dedicated people I have ever met. After an unforgettable and rewarding experience researching his family roots in the Basilicata, Lazio and Molise regions in Italy, Peter founded italyMONDO! in 2006. His dream, as he describes it,
…is to help everyone with Italian ancestors to reconnect with their heritage – to find that missing piece of their puzzle. You may have thought your family’s unique story was forever lost – but it’s only hidden, and you and your family deserve the experience of discovering it together.
Peter and his dedicated team accomplish this by offering services for Family Tree research, help finding relatives living in Italy with their FamilyFinder service, and custom designed Heritage Tours where you can literally walk in your ancestor’s footsteps. If you need help navigating the complicated process of obtaining Dual Italian-American Citizenship, head over to italyMONDO! and they can help you out with that as well.
While exploring the italyMONDO! Blog, you have to look closely for the Campania connection, because italyMONDO! and the blog are not focused on one particular region in Italy. Some of you, however, might have caught the reference in the recent article on La Festa di San Gennaro about the italyMONDO! Italian office being located just five miles from Mt. Vesuvius. So let’s give a warm welcome to Campania to Peter and the italyMONDO! team! I also want to personally thank Peter for bringing me into the italyMONDO! family as a regular contributor to the italyMONDO! Blog. I am honored to be working with such great people, and in my own small way be a part of inspiring Italians around the world to rediscover their family roots. Many thanks to Peter and italyMONDO! for helping so many people learn about and reconnect with their Italian heritage!
