Welcome to my place. It is my goal to increase tourism to the Abruzzo Region of Italy. One of my hobbies is genealogy research. This all started when my husband bought a computer and purchased The Familytree Maker for me. Because of that gift, I have done extensive family research, travelled to Italy twice and met wonderful people both here and in Italy.
We have a tour leaving from Philadelphia July 24 and returning August 7, 2000. Please visit our site at www.abruzzo2000.com/tour.
One of the most exciting things that I have done is walked the streets of my great grandparents village. This feeling of visiting the village and walking the steets that your great grandparents walked and where your grandmother was born is like no feeling I can explain. This July I will visit my grandmother's village again and visit a cousin who still lives there. I will also visit the village of my great great granparents and see the coffee shop that they owned.
If you are interested in searching your family roots, your heritage and history, then come to Abruzzo with us. I waited many years before I dared to take a trip like this. It is important not to put things off in your life that are important to you.
Let us help you find your relatives and your roots. This tour will be like none before it. You will see Abruzzo through the eyes of the people that live there. A tour like this is not offered through normal channels. Abruzzo World Club located in L'Aquila, Italy has put this wonderful tour togehter.
