Founded in 2003, "La Grande Famille de Procida & Ischia" is a non profit association declared under the French law
of July 1, 1901. [Read the statutes ]
The Association gathers the descendants of the people who emigrated from this region of South Italy during the 19th and 20th century.
Many of these migrants were natives from the islands of the Gulf of Naples. [View the map]
Fishermen, retailers or farmers, they populated the French North Africa and the United States of America, others went to Argentina or Australia.
Today their descendants are Italian, French, American, Argentinean, etc.
Initially, thanks to their digitalization and computerization, the Association's main objective
was the preservation of the archives
of the islands of Procida and Ischia. Starting from 2013, our mission has doubled, officializing a new
cultural dimension in order to promote the tourism of the islands together with the preservation of the historical, cultural and natural heritage and
reinforcing the attachment to our roots.
Becoming a member, you will then be able to look for your ancestors, understand the story of your family, build your genealogy tree or simply
discover the cultural and natural richness of the islands. Your contribution will allow to continue our work of preserving our common heritage and
the origins of our Grande Famille de Procida & Ischia. [Brochure 2014
