Is there a place that doesn’t cost too much? There was a book published about our family, my great grandparents came here on a boat from Italy, their last name was Potesta, the authors last name was Poccaro , he lived in Utah. I can’t find the book and I don’t know what it is called!!! It MAY have been called the Potesta family. If anyone can help me I would appreciate it SO much. We have been looking for this book for SO long, it got lost. Even if you know a place where I can find a family tree that isnt too expensive that would help too. Thank you!

    I refer you to the Mormons – the Church of Latter Day Saints – who, providentially, maintain their headquarters in Salt Lake City, Utah.
    They have an absolutely enormous data base which they are continuously adding to. It includes every little tidbit of information they have the time to put into it on ALL Americans, and people from all over the World, actually. It is NOT restricted to Mormons.
    I’m going to find the link because I get this question all the time and I don’t know it off the top of my head – try something like – geneology/LDS/library… You catch the drift.
    One example of at least 100 I could give you — THIS is where I found my ancestors’ mustering out papers from the Revolutionary War. He lived in Pennsylvania at the time and was Catholic. They even had follow-up correspondence where he asked for a "pension" for lack of the proper word, due to injuries sustained in our War for Independence. The Mormons didn’t exist then. UTAH wasn’t part of the U.S. then.
    Just one more – I got the ships’ manifests from my great -great-great grandparents TransAtlantic voyages when they immigrated to the U.S. from Germany. The names of the ships, captains, passengers, supplies, etc.
    BIG bonus – they provide you with this information for FREE!!
    I think there’s a good chance that, if anyone has this book, the LDS Library will have it.
    Depending on when they came over – you can also try the Ellis Island website – also free.
    GOOD LUCK!!
