Hello. My name is Marcus Flansburg

I have created this website because I want to promote genealogy research amongst people who have ancestors from Southern Italy.

I have been working on my own genealogy for about 40 years now, since my maternal grandmother gave me my first “Book of Remembrance”.  I spent my younger years doing genealogy as a hobby.  I retired in 2019 from a career in Law Enforcement.  I have a strong Investigations background.  I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day-Saints.  Our Church has a strong background in Genealogy research.  I volunteer at the FamilySearch library in Logan, Utah.  I am the supervisor of the Friday shift.

I have recently graduated with my associate degree in Family History Research from Brigham Young University-Idaho. I also spent a year as an intern with FamilySearch on the DGA (Direzione Generale Archivi) Italian records team.  I helped to process the Italian civil records and make then ready to be published for public use.

I am taking on-line Italian language classes. I have made two trips to Italy.  During those trips, I was able to do research on my family’s history.  I had a wonderful time!  I was grateful to the people who helped me.  I have decided that I want to help others, especially if they have roots in Southern Italy. To this end, I am now working on my accreditation in Italian research through ICAPGen (International Commission for the Accreditation of Professional Genealogists).  I am also a member of APG (Association of Professional Genealogists).

I would like to help you with your search for your ancestors.  Please contact me for a free consultation.
