Surely you have asked yourself, at least once in your life, questions such as...

Who were my ancestors? What is the meaning of my surname? Where did my family originate?

Perhaps you have tried to obtain an answer by looking through old family papers and photographs or by asking older relatives for info. Unfortunately, oral tradition is not enough to reconstruct one's family history in a complete and fully reliable way. The desire to know your origins, the life and activities of your ancestors can be answered through genealogy, a historical science that, through the research and examination of original documents preserved in archives and libraries, allows you to reconstruct your family history back to the most ancient documented ancestor.
