ACROSS MY DESK: Italian Conference

From: Amy Arner
"Roots in the Boot," an Italian Genealogy and Heritage Conference, will be held on the University of Pittsburgh campus in Pittsburgh, PA on 14-15 July 2006. The exciting program has Dr. John Philip Colletta as the featured speaker. Additional speakers include June DeLalio, CG; Paola Manfredi, AG; Marie Varrelman Melchiori, CG, CGL; Elissa Scalise Powell, CG; Keith Rose, AG; and Megan Smolenyak Smolenyak. The Senator John Heinz Regional History Center, the University of Pittsburgh Italian Language Program, and the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh are co-sponsoring the conference. More information is available at or by writing to Roots in the Boot, PO Box 8313, Pittsburgh, PA 15218-8313.

Be sure to pass this message on to anyone interested in Pittsburgh, Italian research and heritage, how to do genealogy, DNA, access records, preserve their family heirlooms, or write the family history. You don't have to be Italian to register, just interested in the topics presented.
