As we mentioned before, we’ve asked guests from near and far to share inspirational stories relating to families, history, the research process, and preserving memories. Our sixteen guest bloggers are from around the world, and our Feature Guest Blogger loves Italian culture. We’re so excited to announce that joining us in this series is…

Mary M. Tedesco! A professional genealogist, speaker, and author. She is a Host / Genealogist on the PBS TV series “Genealogy Roadshow” (seasons 2 and 3) as well as the Founder of ORIGINS ITALY. Mary speaks fluent Italian and travels often to Italy to conduct client genealogical research and visit family. Mary is the co-author of “Tracing Your Italian Ancestors” an 84-page Italian research guide published by Moorshead Magazines. To learn more about Mary, please visit her blog, twitter, and facebook.
