Meet Ann Tatangelo

Updated: Jul 5, 2021

Ann Tatangelo is a professional researcher in Italian genealogy and is the owner of Angel Research. Although she was born in England, Ann spent most of her life in Canada and later moved to Italy after marrying an Italian man. While in Italy, Ann decided to look into her husband’s family history to practice for her own English research; however, Ann became fascinated with Italian research especially after her local town library opened an archive room. Ann later decided to make Italian genealogy into her professional career through creating her own business: Angel Research.

In general, Ann gets a lot of requests for assistance in obtaining documents for Italian citizenship. Angel Research helps people understand where they can find Italian records to further their research. According to Ann, the best part of her job is seeing how excited people are when they come to Italy and get to see their family history by perhaps walking by the street where their grandparents grew up, visiting the church they attended, or finding where they were baptized. In Ann’s own words, “People are just so appreciative of the help we give them and it’s a really good feeling to know that you’ve helped someone fill in a gap in their history.”

Angel Research has seen much success as genealogy has received more and more attention in recent years. Many people wish to understand and connect with their ancestors, and with Ann’s guidance, they can finally make it happen.
