Looking for birth mother...

Postby Dopey3333 » 25 Jan 2016, 19:47

I am writing in hopes of finding my birth mother. I was born October 31 st 1961 in Monterotondo , Rome , Italy. I came to the US with a passport and a given name of Laila Formica ( surname??) my name was then changed to Linda Salvatore . I came the the US February 11, 1964 as my passport states.
I was told growing up that I was adopted by a Joseph Salvatore. I know have reason to believe that I was not In fact adopted , I do however believe that Joseph Salvatore is my biological father. I do believe that I may have information on birth mother . I have recently found pictures that may suggest my birth mother is in many pictures . I have also found letters that were written to me in the 1980's from this particular lady , that we're withheld from me . I believe that her name is Angela . Last name - perhaps being Pusino or Raccli. The parents that raised have not and refuse to be honest with me in this matter. I feel hurt , betrayed ETC by all of this . I have a family of my own now , grand kids . I just received my DNA kit in the mail in hopes of finding any family out there . If anyone has any pointers / help in leading me perhaps in the right direction in finding my true identity it would be greatly appreciated . I thank all in advance .
Thank You , Linda Salvatore

Hello

Birth Act is basically the Birth Record or Registration of Birth.

I wish that I could help further, but I'd be way out of my depth. I've just had a reread of your story here, have been thinking about it, and find it heartwrenching. I sincerely hope you find your mother.

You might write to the Commune of Monterotondo, requesting your birth certificate ("estratto integrale dell'atto di nascita").

Comune di Monterotondo - Ufficio di Stato Civile
PALAZZO ORSINI IN PIAZZA FRAMMARTINO N. 4
00015 MONTEROTONDO (RM)

or

mail: demografico@comune.monterotondo.rm.it
Responsabile: sig. Attilio Palombi

However, they'll ask you to send the copy of an identity document (passport...), and, as the certificate is about a living person, you'll have to prove that the applicant and who the certificate refers to are one and the same person.

You did an Ancestry.com DNA test?
What is your closest hit? 1st, 2nd cousins?
Going forward you will need to test someone in your family, like an uncle or someone that decends from your mother's side, to confirm the blood line.

You can also export your RAW data and move it to www.gedmatch.com for more hits.
You can also private message me for other details.
