Barga History Articles by BGRG Members

It is inevitable that while researching individual ancestral family members you will learn about the world in which they lived. Often this knowledge of the "greater" story can fill gaps that exist between the static facts we uncover about distant relations.

The following articles were written by our members to describe pieces of Barga history that they discovered during their search for ancestors. The articles demonstrate a love of heritage, a quest for knowledge and a willingness to share with like-minded seekers. Consider them little history lessons prepared with a friendly, personal touch of TLC. We hope you enjoy them and become inspired to submit your own.
