Digging up Roots in the Boot

5-Step Quick Guide to Heritage Tourism


Digging up Roots in the Boot  provides all the services that you need to have your Italian citizenship recognized, research your family's records, carefully plan a memorable itinerary, and then guide you through your journey of rediscovering your cultural roots in Italy.  A trip of a lifetime!

The children and grandchildren of Italian immigrants, perhaps more than any other immigrant population, have a strong connection to their cultural identity. 

In the U.S., Canada, and Australia, second and third generations of immigrant ancestors still hold dear many of the traditions and values from their “hometown” back in The Old Country. 

Our mission is to help reconnect you on an even deeper level by escorting you back to those hometowns to see for yourself where your family came from. And who knows, you might even meet some people that you’re literally connected to through the bloodline. Join us!

Digging up Roots in the Boot Laura Lee

Italian Heritage Specialist

I am a proud third generation Italian American who ventured abroad to Italy in 2005 with the intention of digging a little deeper into my Italian roots. I visited my ancestral villages in Sicily, have met and developed ongoing relationships with distant cousins, and had my Italian citizenship recognized.

It was after this amazing experience that I dedicated myself to promoting the richness of Italian cultural heritage.

     Thank you sooo much for the beyond amazing day you spent with us in Serra Pedace and with meeting our Italian cousins. That day was a complexity of wonderful emotions that I can barely describe in words. . . .We are still overwhelmed with happiness about our trip. Every time each of us talks about it we just glow!!”

Laura, Thank you so much for an amazing family heritage experience in Maddaloni! While most people don’t have the opportunity to compare, I can confidently state that your knowledge, energy, persistence and personality far out-shined the others. There were so many best parts … from record searches to cemetery exploration to visiting ancestral churches to the unintended consequence of meeting my “ancestral in-laws.” I feel like you are part of my extended Italian family. I can’t wait for my next trip to do some more ‘digging up roots’ with you.”

We are still talking and reminiscing about our trip … I can’t thank you enough for the way you maneuvered around the comune and the hospital. Without your expertise, I don’t think I would have met my cousins and learned about my father’s family."
