Welcome to ItalianGenealogy!!
Excellent summary, it seems you have done quite a bit of research already.
Have you identified the town of origin in Italy? Or did I miss that?

Yup town is Moliterno, Basilicata, Italy. I have no idea where that is, or indeed if correct spelling.

The Region is Basilicata, Province is Potenza, and the town is Moliterno.

You are in luck, as the entire town has microfilmed records dating back to
1809!! From this you can identify all births, marriages and deaths thru 1910.

Microfilm


The proper way of obtaining microfilm from a Family History Center
1. You go to www.familysearch.org

2. Click on the tab on the top right called Library

3. Click on the words Family History Library Catalog

4. Click on the words Place Search and type in the town you are looking for. Then click the word search.

5. A list of the results will show up. (an example: Philadelphia, Pennsylvania)

6. Click on the link you are looking for such a Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Vital Records. A new page will appear where it will show all the films for Vital Records

7. Click on the link you want such as Death Registries.

8. Click on View Film Notes and a list of the microfilm numbers will appear.

9. Click at the bottom of the page, For a printable copy, click hereand you will get a form to print out with all the film numbers.

10. Click print.



Ordering Microfilm

1. Now the FHC does not have all the microfilm in their possession.

2. You have to order the microfilm which takes 3-4 weeks for it to arrive.

3. It costs about $5.75 a roll for 30 days of viewing time.

4. If you need to renew the microfilm, it cost about $5.50 for another 60 days.

5. If you need to renew it after the 60 days, it will cost another $5.50 and the films can be kept on an indefinite bases.

6. Microfilm must be viewed at the FHC.

7. Copies are $0.35 a page.

Now what would be most helpful is to know the mothers first name, if possible the surname as well. Would make searching the index somewhat easier. Italian women retain their maiden name for life, even after marriage.

Hi Martin

My Grandmother's name is Eleanora Astrella Donaldson, nee Fussell(Bridport). Sisters are Joan (deceased) ad Sheila. Married David Duncan Donaldson (Dundee, Scotland). Had 6 children - Jane Donaldson, Julietta Donaldson, David Donaldson, Sue Donaldson, Sylvia Donaldson and Cynthia Donaldson (my mother).

Not sure what my Gandmother's mother's name is, but I think Francesco Astrella may be my Great Great Grandfather.

Just a bit of info that might interest you! And would love to know how you are related to Francesco Astrella!
