Research Question

Postby apesce65 » 20 Mar 2009, 01:42

I understand that:
1.) Italy is divided into 20 Regions
2.)Each region into Provinces, 103 total.

Would I be correct if i said Solerno is the Province.
is Sianno the city or the region?

Once I find out the city do they have records online or does ancestry.com link to those already?


Sono felice io ho trovato questa vista di fotoricettore! Tutto è stato così utile.

I searched on one of my favorite sites. It's great to find what province or regione a town is located in, plus many other great features.

http://www.nonsolocap.it

Regione: Campania
Province: Salerno
Locality (city or town): Salerno

Is this the town you are talking about? If so, it's important to have the correct spelling. I could not locate anything under the spelling you used.

Sorry, someone else will need to help you with the second part of your question, since I don't use Ancestry.
Regards,
Bette

Siano is a CITY in the Province of Salerno in the region of Campania... their website seems to be under construction but here's a link that will give you some information.

Thank you for the link

Anthony Pesce

Sto provando a trovare le informazioni su Amdio Pesce e la sua moglie Maria D'Ascoli da Siano, sono venuto negli U.S.A. verso 1905. Penso che genitore del Adamio sia stato Louis e Louisa
