Italians living in Tunisia

Postby janstwin » 25 Aug 2016, 23:23

I am looking to find birth and marriage records for my husband's Italian relatives who lived in Tunsia. My mother in law was born there in 1935, her name is Natalina Carmela D'Alessandro. She married a US Marine (Maurae W Mitchell) sometime before 1955.

Natalina's mother is named Maria Stella Piccarella. I am also looking for her birth and marriage record. She married Emanuele D'Alessandro. They both died here in the United States. Their death certificates list Sfax as their birthplace.

Thank you for any help you can give. I'm new to genealogy and feel overwhelmed at trying to follow my husband's line.

Hi
The online database for the Diocese of Tunis has the Baptism of one Emmanuel D'Alessandro, born in Sousse in 1898 son of Crocifisso and Carmela Tanturella or Tandurella or Tandurello. Other children of this couple were born in Sfax.
Another Emmanuele D'Alessandro, son of Sauveur (French for Salvatore) and Piccione Natala was born in Sfax in 1904

This site (in French) has also the directions for asking the original documents from the Diocese
