How to find a birth certificate in Italy?

Postby jfeble » 23 Jun 2010, 14:26

I am trying to track down my fiance's great grandfather's birth certificate. His great grandfather was born in Tiarno di Sopra, which it seems at one time was territory of Austria. I am at a rock and a hard place since I don't know if I should start my search in Italy and/or Austria. And if in Austria where? What comune or court would Tiarno di Sopra been under. Also, if the birth certificate is in Italy, what kind of information, costs and time would it take to obtain? If anyone could help me I would so much appreciate it. :?

The last name is ODORIZZI and he was born on 1876
in Tiarno di Sopra

Any help is appreciated. Should I start by calling the comune?

I see no harm in contacting the comune.

According to this Wikipedia page ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tiarno_di_Sopra ), on January 1 of this year, Tiarno di Sopra merged with several other municipalities to form Comune di Ledro. However from Comune di Ledro's website ( http://www.unioneledro.it/cms/pagina.php?id=40 ), it seems possible that the old offices are still in existence. Hence:

Ufficio dello Stato Civile
Municipio di Tiarno di Sopra
P.zza Europa, 5
38060 Tiarno di Sopra TN
ITALY

Tel: 0464 596 161 - Fax: 0464 596 116
E-mail: c.tiarnosopra@comuni.infotn.it (remove the spaces)
Carmine

My hobby is finding things. Having found most of my own, I am happy to help others find theirs. PM me! :)

Hi, from 1874 to 1878 in all Trentino region was born in Tiarno di Sopra ONLY 1 Odorizzi:

name: PIETRO BERNARDO ODORIZZI
gender: M
baptism date: 7/11/1876
birth place: TIARNO DI SOPRA
parish: SS. Pietro e Paolo
father: Bernardo ODORIZZI
mother: Madalena POINELLI

so this must be the name of your fiance's great grandfather.

Now, because in this region( Trentino Alto Adige) from 1815 to 1923 the priests was also civil record's officers, for the birth certificate
googling abt the priest name of this church, what I found is:

DON GIAMPIETRO BALDO
http://www.webdiocesi.chiesacattolica.i ... ifp=&vis=1
and the priest address is:
DON GIAMPIETRO BALDO
Via Vittoria, 3
38060 PIEVE DI LEDRO (TN)
Italy
http://www.webdiocesi.chiesacattolica.i ... ifp=&vis=1
so you can write in italian language asking for the birth certificate.
Best regards,
suanj

thank you so much, that is him. Would you know if I have to send any money? Or should I just send a self-addressed envelope for them to send back to me?

SUANJ.

I have tried calling the church many times leaving many messages to see if Don Giampietro has received my request. Is there any other way to contact the church? I want to make sure that they received my request, and I would like to know how long it will take for them to send this document to me. Two weeks have past already and I am getting anxious.

Please help.

Here patience is a virtue, particularly when you are dealing with the jolly reverends in Italy. Give it another week and during the following 4th week send an updated e-mail. All sorts of things may have come up and for the first time around it may pay to be patient. =Peter=
