“Thank you Allison. This experience has totally changed us forever. Rosa [our guide] is truly amazing and what she accomplished for us has touched our hearts ♥ forever, ” wrote our Experience Sicily clients today after their visit to their ancestral town of Palazzolo Acreide. This was thrilling to hear! Lena obtained official birth certificates of her father and grandparents. At the church where her parents were married, the priest showed her and her children, Carole and John (along with their spouses), the official marriage record of their grandparents. They went to the town cemetery where they located graves of ancestors. And most importantly, they met ten cousins who live in Palazzolo Acreide.
Our guide Rosa described the day as emotional and fantastic. In fact, the joy of reconnecting instigated a plan for a family pizza party on Thursday when even more cousins will join in this exciting discovery! Life-changing for sure!
