A completely custom tour in real time, not virtually through an ancestry website

Driven by poverty and the promise of employment, millions of Italians immigrated to the United States, Canada and Australia between 1870 and the Great Depression, with many more to follow through the 1980s. Interestingly, they kept alive in foreign places many dialects and customs that have mostly disappeared from modern Italy.
