I caught up with the webinar about Italian ancestry last Thursday or Friday. It was EXCELLENT. I am half Italian, my Dad coming to the UK in the late 1960's. Even though I have been researching my Italian (actually Sicilian)forebears for more than 25 years I still learn't something new. Ruth was wonderfully passionate about researching Italians and was a delight to listen to. I hope she will be invited back to Legacy, as she was undoubtedly one of the best speakers I have heard in a long while.
