Which villages within Lunigiana are researched?
Souls of Lunigiana researches the ancestors of the historic villages Apella and Taponecco. However, due to movement, there are some ancestors recorded that are from nearby villages, including from Tavernelle, Panicale, Villa di Panicale, and Ripola.
Can I contribute information?
Of course! Any information you may have that could help in the discovery of ancestors or help in providing more depth for an ancestor’s page would be much appreciated. When pages contain areas of information that are “not available atm”, this means that we either have no information at the moment or the information will be provided soon. You can contribute here.
