Italian citizen born and living in Switzerland

Postby sigel7 » 15 Feb 2009, 20:11

My grandparents were both Italian citizens but were both born and raised in Switzerland (canton Ticino). What country do I look for their birth certificats? and they were married in Switzerland, where would I search for their marriage records?

Thanks for the help.

Their birth record will be in their town of origin in Italy..If you know the town you can send for copy of birth with form letters in Italian to Udffico di Stato Civile to that town. free of charge

For marriage records in Switzerland write (same form letter in italian) to Uffio di Stato Civile in the town where they were married in the Canton Ticino. There will be a fee but current charges are unknown. Most recent charge was 20 swiss francs but I suspect is now higher. =Peter=

Thank you. How does one find the town of origin. The only info I have states where they were born, which is Switzerland for both. My greatgrandfather Luigi Calderoni, father of my grandfather, came to the US in 1911 but the town of his birth, per the ellis island manifest, is very hard to read. It looks a lot like Nolagrio in Italy, but I dont find any town w/ that name. But, even with that town identified, how could I find what the "origin" city is?

I have seen many of your replies on this forum and you are a wealth of information and give it freely, it is much appreciated.

Thank you,

Catherine
