tracking down vital stats from Santomenna???

Postby tdigeronimo » 30 Dec 2008, 14:23

How can I find vital statistics for great-grandparents? I am looking for the birth, marriage and death records of Francesco DiGeronimo (born abt mid 1800s) and his wife Mariangiola Gatto, both from Santomenna/Salerno. Their son (my grandfather) was Giuseppe DiGeronimo born in Santomenna/Salerno in 1884 and emmigrated to USA in 1901. In 1908 in Santomenna, Giuseppe married Maria Guiseppa DiNicola (born 1888; daughter of Emidio Felice DiNicola and Anna Altera)
My son in the USA, Joseph DiGeronimo, has been invited to play for a professional baseball team in Italy if he can obtain dual citizenship. This last link to the great-grandparents is his stumbling block and time is running out. I have sent an email asking for Giuseppe's birth records to ROSA VIGORITO Del Stato Civile Comune di SANTOMENNA ITALIA, but after one month and 3 copies of the request, I've still heard nothing.
I appreciate any help or advice. Thank you.

requests must be in italianlangiage and I think e-mail is not treated as well as a letter. Try www.angelfire.com/ok3/pearlsofwisdom/it ... tters.html

All I readis thatyou sent ane -mail and nothing else so I do not want to overlook the obvious but this maybe the problem. Toss in a few Euros if you have them handy. =Peter=

I would have thought the team coach would have helped with this but if not then send me the details and I'll call them for you. Emails sometimes work but letters with an addressed envelope are much better.
