go to www.paginebianche.it and insert surname in first line and town in thrid line and click CERCA. If anybody there has surname a listing will show up of name,address and telephone number. ince I have to guess at what you want go to www.ellisisland,org for entry into the USA of your ancestor for birth year and place of origin, destination and accompanying passanger. Please advbise just what you want to accomplish?. Peter

Zanatta

Interesting, my mother's maiden name is Zanette. Her parents came from Pinidello which is near Cordignano in Treviso/Veneto region.

I wonder if there is any common origin of the 2 surnames, or is it just spelling differences between possible dialects from region to region.

Both Zanette and Zanatta are alterations and derivations of the base surname ZANNI which appears in the Italian surname Dictionary. Thus your guess is correct in that they are along many mnay many other surnames derived from Zanni. Peter

Hi: the surnames Zanatta or Zanette, is specific of Treviso area(Veneto region), and derives from Veneto's dialectal word "Zan", that it means in Italian language "Gianni", diminutive of first name Giovanni..

I recommend that you check your local library or bookstore for a copy of "Italian Genealogical Records" by Trafford Cole. This excellent book covers all the fundamentals for researching family history in Italy, especially for those who must do research via correspondence.

Here are some addresses for you.

For vital records from September 1871 and later:

Ufficio di Stato Civile
Comune di Paese
Via Senatore Pellegrini, 4
31038 Paese (TV)
Italy

For earlier vital records:

Parrocchia Assunzione della Beata Vergine Maria
Via Baracca Francesco, 3
31040 Porcellengo (TV)
Italy

For military records and Napoleonic-era vital records (1806-1815):

Archivio di Stato di Treviso
Via A. Marchesan 11a
31100 Treviso
Italy

Good luck with your research,

When corresponding for documents it is bst to write in Italian or use form letters such as you find in www.circolocalabrese.org under research and you might also wish to enclose a self addressed envelope with a postal coupon equivalent to $5.EURO. Peter

I don't believe you'll find their records on ancestry (yet)
Most folks write directly to the comune or rent microfilm (if available) from their local Family History Center

Amanda, migrated in the 1970 I found
ZANATTA Silverio born 5 September 1951 - Italian
Contents date range 1970 - 1970

ZANATTA Beniamino born 1 January 1948; Giovanna (nee Borsato) born 17 April 1951 - Italian
Contents date range 1970 - 1971

however you can search the immigration record by yourself:
http://www.naa.gov.au/collection/record ... index.aspx
