I'm Giuseppe Sorbello and have lived in Sicily since I was born. Living here has granted me the privilege of learning about the history of the Land, especially the eastern part of it. This particular area suffered a great emigration when more than a million people left between 1876 and 1929.
I have thousand hours of experience researching for customers all over the world made in the last ten years. Recently, I am working on my last name origins and I am tracking the genealogy of all Sicilian Sorbello from 1400 to 1850.
I am a member of the Association of Professional Genealogists and I am also part of the researcher team for Ancestry. Besides, in 2017 I researched for the US TV series “Who Do You Think You Are?”.
I am also specialized in genetic genealogy, one of the broad of genealogy which provide us with unique information collected from DNA analysis.
This is the flagship product! You will receive detailed terms of my service, scans of all historical documents I find, a family tree chart, a research report, and a long-term service dedicated to the understanding of work.
Other services include: records research (birth, baptism, marriage, death, military service, etc.), the search for living relatives, finding graves and burials, native home research, and any other tailored research requests.
We will grant you support in the endorsement of documents (apostilles).
A long-term service dedicated to the understanding your DNA analysis (23andMe, Family Tree DNA, Ancestry, My Heritage DNA, Geno DNA Ancestry Kit, GEDmatch).
Sicilian Ancestry gives you the opportunity of chasing your ancestor tracks with a comprehensive genealogic tour back to the places they were born. Let us take you to the church they get married, or experience the emotion of visiting the house they used to live in before embarking to the journey that shaped their lives forever. Our team will research on the landmark of your past to give you moments never to forget. Time has passed but many Sicilian towns remain nearly untouched, with minor changes. Touching their doorstep, climbing the steps of the church where they crowned their dream of love will give you the same emotions that long ago your ancestors left in their beloved Sicily.
Research fee is 40 $/hour (travel expenses: 0,75 $/mile). Average cost of research is 300 $. I’m available to offer customized packages for every need.
