certificato di stato di famiglia, where to apply?

Postby EdDiDo » 23 Apr 2011, 16:01

My grandparents, and all prior generations were born in Scontrone, L'Aquila, Abruzzo, Italy. I would like to get a family certificate showing the date and place of birth of each family member. I know the names of my great grandparents but not their marriage date or birth dates. To get the family certificate I need to write to the Ufficio Anagrafe (registry office). My question, is the registry office located at the provice of Aquila? If so, were is that office located? Or is the registry office located in the same town (Scontrone) as the Ufficio di Stato Civile, (Civil registration office).

Thanks for the reply

The anagrafe is at the comune level. Write to

Ufficio della Anagrafe
Comune di Scontrone

In most all but the largest comuni, the Anagrafe and Stato Civile share the same physical space and staff.

I would be interested to know how many people have actually received a Family Certificate from any comune.

Me too!

I have seen very few tales of success; also, I have read that most comuni will only issue these for a family currently residing in the comune and not as historical records.

Johnnonthespot, thanks for the reply. I will submit my request, they will probably ignore it but I plan on visiting Scontrone this summer. Hopefully, by then, they will have at least given it some thought.

Instead of requesting something that would take them forever to produce why not just ask them to search for the marriage record. It will tell you the ages on marriage and from that you can request a search for birth records.

Italysearcher, thanks for the suggestion. I believe I can find my greatgrandparents marriage records through the LDS,their records are conlete up to 1865, and as you suggest I can request the marriage records for my grandfather and two great uncles. However, I am sure that my grandfather had more siblings, their names were never passed down by family members. A certificato di stato di famiglia should give their names. That would be a great help when I visit Scontrone. If you know of another way to get their names I would appreciate the help.

When you go to Scontrone ask if the anagrafe have a Foglio di famiglia or a Registro del Popolazione or schede personale from the early 1900's r late 1800's. Any of the above will help identify siblings. Usually these are stored away and dirty so they won't usually check them but if you are there in person and asking for them???
Other alternative is to ask at the church if they have a Stato delle anime that would cover that period.
