Hi Bob and welcome to the forum.

What type of information do you need help with? Are you looking for records from the USA, Italy or both?

Can you give us more details........Persons name, approximate date of birth, town where he/she came from, year arriving in the USA, spouses full name and date of birth, childrens names and dates of birth etc.

The more detail you can give the easier it will be for members of the forum to help you out.

We'll wait to hear back from you.

Regards,
Elizabeth

Bob,
You didn't give us your father's name, so this is just a wild stab in the dark. If it is not the correct record, give us dad's first name and/or date of immigration.

Hello :D !
I’ll bet we can help, but like Elizabeth says, we need just a little more information.

What was your father’s name?
Did he come to the US?
Do you need help with your family’s records in the US?
Do you need direction on how to research your family in Italy?

Here’s just a guess :wink:

Is this your father?

Nicholas Di Tursi
Born 27 Aug 1896
Lived in Hudson County, NJ?
Father’s name was Michele?
Had a brother named Vincenzo?

Arrived in the US on 15 April 1921 on the SS Providence from Naples to NY

manifest page 2
Line 25

Hi Mary Jo!

WOW!
We picked the same person.
I was so busy typing I didn't see your note, my apologies!
I can't wait to see if we're right.

Thank you ladies ( I believe ) You both are truly talented and gifted !!!
My father Nicola ( Nicholas ) died in December 1942 eight months after I was born. My oldest brother had limited info other than a few photos and discharge papers from the Italian army.... I knew my grandfather's name was Michele and grandmother's name was Lileta Maria Carmella, I believe also born in Pisticci... I would like to find further info on my fathers side of the family in Pisticci... At age 66, I believe that I should pass on as much heritage info to my son and daughter as possible... Have to leave you now, my wife and I are on our way to the hospital as our daughter is about to give birth to her first baby... Thank you again and God bless you.

P.S... Please keep in touch as I would truly like to get involved in his informative site and share with others any skills that I may have.

Bob

Hello Bob!
Congratulations on your new grandchild!

If you want to start your research into Italian records by ordering your father’s birth record,
this is the address

Ufficio dello Stato Civile
Comune di Pisticci
Piazza dei Caduti
75015 Pisticci MT
ITALY

And here’s an interactive form letter that will translate your request into Italian:
http://www.circolocalabrese.org/resourc ... civile.asp

---

Are you familiar with the Family History Library?
click here about FamilySearch

As Peter mentioned earlier in your post,
you can order microfilmed civil records of your town to view at your local Family History Center.

Topic Italy, Matera, Pisticci - Civil registration
Titles Registri dello stato civile, 1809-1929 Pisticci (Matera). Ufficio dello stato civile
click here microfilm notes

We can recommend several terrific books on Italian records research if this sounds like something you would be interested in.

And yes, please join in on the forum - the more the merrier!
