Which films to start with? (Fornelli)

Postby cjthibeault » 13 Jan 2009, 12:19

Hello Everyone,

So I'm going to order some films from LDS, and I've already stumbled onto my first problem. I have basic birth information for two of my ancestors from Fornelli. My gr.gr.grandmother was born in 1867, and her daughter, born in 1899. I know the names of the gr.gr.gr.grandparents (one generation up), as well as the daughter's siblings. That's it.

I'm looking at the list of available films from Fornelli, and it doesn't look too promising. It seems like the only 2 confirmed dates that I have don't fit into any of the available films (sometimes off by just a couple of years).

What would be the best search strategy? I won't have tons of time, so I'd like to order the films that are most likely to find something useful. If any of you would mind taking a look at the list of Fornelli films (below) and giving me some suggestions, it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Christopher J. Thibeault

It looks like the only records filmed were those from 1809 to 1865. To get your records you will need to write to the town directly. Be sure to write in Italian, and enclose a SAE.

This one seems to fit your 1899 birth and provided the parents were married in that comune you shoud be able to find their marriage record sometime in the 1880's or 1890's too.

I can't believe that I didn't see those birth records for 1899 when I looked at the list, but I ended up ordering this film anyway as I thought it was likely to contain the marriage of her parents.

I also ordered the 1855-1861 and 1862-1865 marriage films. I was told they should be here in 2-3 weeks. Hopefully they will turn up some useful information.

Thanks to everyone for your help!
