As I work on my Italian immigrant ancestry, I realized that due to the remoteness, and small population size of the village, Calomini, Province of Lucca, Toscana, Italy, that anyone who lived there during that time frame, would have known or been related to my relatives. Being able to perform a search on keywords, rather than just names would be helpful, as there has been no digitizing of records from Toscana. That way I would be able to identify other profiles where source documents indicate that the ancestor was born in or near the village of Calomini.

Scroll down to the bottom of the WikiTree search page at http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Special:SearchPerson and you will find a box to search WikiTree for any text.

And if you find some relevant records, you might want to add the profiles to a category for the village. The narrowest-scope category that exists at the moment is Category:Province_of_Lucca and no profiles or pages have been added to it yet. If you have profiles to put in the Lucca category, add the string [[Category: Province of Lucca]] at the top of the editing box on the profile page.
