Help with Microfilm

Postby StarV579 » 22 Feb 2009, 09:33

I had recieved a tip from someone a while back. They told me in order to find out more information about my family name that I would either A. have to write the town for more documents and/or information. B. Locate the Microfilm through the Latter day saints website.

Here's the problem. I heard that I must view the microfilm at the Latter day saints history center. Is that correct? I need to drive to Utah to view the records?

Or could I order them and have them shipped to my house then ship them back? how does it work.

Also, my family is from a small village or town called Bagnara, Campania, Italy. Would I write the town of Bagnara for more information or would I write Benevento instead?

Thank you so much!

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.

Thank you so much! I just tried to locate the microfilm, like you had said... and I couldn't find any microfilm for what I was interested in..

I typed in Bagnara, under place search.. and there was nothing at all for bagnara campania.

There was something for Benevento though.. the only thing was the history of Benevento itself.

My family is from Bagnara, campania. Have any ideas what I should do next ?

Thank you again!

Sorry.....I keep getting disconnected....

I can't locate the town address, could be a frazione of another larger town.
We need one of our Italian posters to look into this.
Will check back in the morning....or should I say later in the morning!
It's already 5am here!

These are your options for records that include Bagnara

Bagnara
Italy, Perugia, Bagnara

Bagnara Calabra
Italy, Reggio di Calabria, Bagnara Calabra

Bagnara San Quirico
Italy, Perugia, Bagnara San Quirico

Bagnara di Romagna
Italy, Ravenna, Bagnara di Romagna

Maybe you can check your source that says Campagnia, I'm thinking it's a mistake.

Maybe one of the members that lives in Italy can help out here.

Go to www.nonsolocap.it and type in Bagnara and all listings for Bagnara either alone or as part of another place name will come up. =Peter=

From the information that I have gathered it should be sant angelo a cupolo, bagnara, benevento. On my ggreatgrandfathers registration card it said he was from bagnara. I have already mapped out most of what is listed above with no luck. The link also showed campania. Good point though guess it could always be a mistake.
Thanks again for all of your help. It's most appreciated.

DearStar iif you are planning to send a form letter requesting documents to Sant'Angelo Cupolo it must be in Italian so go to the following website for such letters. www.angelfire.com/ok3/pearlsofwisdom/it ... tters.html and then send the letters to the "municipio address" which you will find if you go to www.nonsolocap.it and type in Sant'Angelo Cupolo and then click on the name when it comes up and an administrative website will come up. Scroll down to "municipio" and send the form letters to Uffico di Stato Civile, and that address. . =Peter=
