Filò Magazine

If your ancestors came from Trentino-Alto Adige, you really should check out the magazine  Filò: A Journal for Tyrolean Americans. Each issue showcases a different part of the region, and is a wealth of historical, cultural and linguistic information. There are many interesting family stories written by readers, and I also write a regular column called ‘Genealogy Corner‘ and have recently started a Surname Spotlight series. Check out a few of the latest issues below, or go to to see the complete back catalogue.
