Birth Certificate or Verification

Postby jbaltutis » 21 Mar 2013, 00:17

My wife is looking to find out more about her great-great grandparents. His name is Francesco Lorusso and they came to Boston, MA from Anzano, Italy in approx 1891. Does anyone know if I can try to get a copy or verification of his birth records? Thanks.

Welcome to the forum :D !

Can you provide a bit more information for us?

There are several ANZANO towns - which one was Francesco from?
Anzano, comune of Cappella Maggiore, Treviso, Veneto
Anzano del Parco, comune of Anzano del Parco, Como, Lombardy
Anzano di Puglia, comune of Anzano di Puglia, Foggia, Puglia

Do you have an approximate date of birth for Francesco?

Arrival in about 1891... NY or Boston?

Name of Francesco's wife/children?

Anything you can provide will be of help in the search.

Additionally, you can write directly to the comune...
We can provide an address for you and resources for writing your request in Italian :-)

I found additional information on the son (Giovanni Lorusso), not sure if biological or not? I found a World War I draft registration card that listed his birth place as Anzano degli Irpini. Francesco was born in 1863/1864. His wife's name is Josephine Auciello. I am assuming they arrived in Boston as that is where they all worked and died. Francesco died in 1951 in Roxbury, MA and Giovanni died in Roxbury or Boston in March 1966. Giovanni's birth date is June 24, 1892 and was married to Carmella LoRusso with the exact same maiden name. Please let me know if there is anything else I can provide you with. I really appreciate your help.

Hi, I found a Francesco Lorusso emigrated in 1904:

After further research Giovanni Lorusso was born in Anzano di Pugglia on June 24, 1892. Is there somewhere I can write to get a copy of his birth certificate?
