POINTers In Person

Welcome! Benvenuto!
Sergeant John Basilone Chapter

POINTers In Person is an autonomous branch of POINT with approximately 25 chapters nationwide. Each chapter is formed by members in a particular geographic area for the purpose of social interaction and face-to-face discussion of Italian genealogy and related topics. Each chapter is independently organized and determines its own activities and schedule of events. All Italians researching their family tree are invited to attend the chapter meetings.

Although it is highly recommended, membership in POINT is not a pre-requisite to joining our group. As a member of POINT, you will receive a POINTers quarterly magazine containing articles about Italian research as well as personal accounts of other researchers' success.

In addition, your surnames of interest will be included
and surname matching is published in an
annual world-wide directory
of over 20,000 names.
