My ancestors were from Italy and Africia, Tunisia and Ethiopian background. How do I search with only names?

Hi Rita. You have a little more than names on the close ancestors.  A good idea is to go back to your question and add ʻtagsʻ at the bottom of the question for every surname you have. Also for the countries you mention. That attracts people researching or interested in the same names/places.

For the further off ancestors you may want to estimate dates (based on the age of identified descendants) so that those who would like to help have a little more information. You should mention in the Biography section that the dates are estimates.

You are probably looking for immigration information to find them arriving somewhere.That might be found on FamilySearch or Ancestry.  From that you may be able to build backwards.

Ask for help here any time, add the links or profile numbers so we can look at the profiles.

There are many here who will help you find what you are looking for.

Good luck and have a good time.

I am not sure but sometimes if you search the location and name you may find something or if you search the location and genalogy?

I don't know if this will help but I did find this:

Hi Rita,

You might also want to check out the list of projects. The project list can be found under the Find drop down menu. Most projects have lists of resources. Here is the page of resources from the Italy project:

Good luck with your research!
