The Connecticut Society of Genealogists, Inc. presents

“Hands-on Italian Genealogy: Digging Roots on the ground in Italy” with Alessandro Bovino

This workshop might be the right fit for all whose roots stem from Italy and who are serious about genealogy. On a prolonged business trip to the States, professional genealogist Alessandro Bovino from Benevento, Campania, Italy, will share details about how your Italian family tree can be brought up to the next level when using on-site records that remain yet unexplored, like notarial documents, military files or dowry records. Open to the expert as to the novice alike, the lecture will let you understand the invaluable worth of Italian local records – right from an on-site Italian professional’s perspective.


Alessandro Bovino is a native Italian professional genealogist and family history speaker. He is a member of the Association of Professional Genealogists and was once a Host/Genealogist on the renowned series “Who do you think you are?” for the Swedish TV format.  He is also the president and founder of the family history firm ‘Bella Italia Genealogy’ based in his native town Benevento, Southern Italy.

Everything started back in 2006 when he suddenly got very curious about certain family lines he had never thought much about.  It was then that his father told him about a great-uncle who came to America through Ellis Island, and this spurred him on to discover who he is and where he comes from.  Since then, as an Italian-born researcher, he has been thrilled to meet second cousins in the States who had waited for decades to greet their Italian family.  It is with this spirit of curiosity and adventure that Alessandro decided to found Bella Italia Genealogy as an exclusively Italy-based genealogy research, ancestral tour, and Dual Citizenship company. By using records and documents available only through on-site research, he aims to make yours a one-of-a-kind genealogy experience.
