great-grandparents birth certificates from Italy

Postby basho23 » 24 Feb 2012, 01:45

Hi

I am starting the process of obtaining Italian citizenship through jus sanguinis and having trouble finding where to write for my great-grandparents birth and marriage certificates in Italy. They were both born and married in San Ferdinando di Puglia - my great-grandfather in 1887 and great-grnadmother 1890. Unfortunately, I do not know exactly when they were married. I know from my great-grandfather's death certificate they were married in San Ferdinando di Puglia before he immigrated to the US in 1914...

My trouble is San Fernidando di Puglia was moved a year or two ago from its former region Foggia to the new region Barletta-Andria-Trani. So, I am not sure where these records are currently being held...

Any advice would be greatly appreciated...

Cheers,

Lou

The records are kept at Comune level, you may write to:

Comune di San Ferdinando di Puglia
Ufficio di Stato Civile
Via Isonzo 6
76017 San Ferdinando di Puglia BT
Italia

The birth record should also hold an annotation with the marriage date. In any case you can ask them to search the marriage record in the time-frame 1906-1914.
