Dead end in search?  Have you reached a dead end in your search?
Don't rely exclusively on internet resources!

Did you know that millions of genealogy records are not available on the internet?
Many people are unaware that many important records which are crucial to their family tree search cannot be found online.
Many important records are only available to researchers who physically visit repository at the local level in Sicily Italy.

So, if you have limited your past family tree research to exhaustive internet searches at Ancestry.com, Family Search, My Heritage, and other online databases and web sites, you may have reached a brick wall because you're missing out on the literal gold mine of records available and can only be obtained by mailing research requests to places like local public libraries, Comuni, Archivi di Stato, or cemeteries.
