Church Records & Catasto Onciario for Casacalenda

Postby crossl » 16 Apr 2009, 00:10

Hello to all,

with help from this forum (especially Susan and Riccardo) and LDS films, I've been able to trace my branch of the "Di Genova" surname in Casacalenda, prov. Campobasso to about 1734. Wondering if anyone has had any luck obtaining information from the church in the town.
Also have been thinking about the Catasto Onciario of 1742 for Casacalenda as a way of going back a bit more, but it's quite expensive.

Would anyone doing research of surnames in Casacalenda be interested in sharing the cost of a copy? It would allow us to go back another generation or two. The only other way is thru the church records and I'm not sure how responsive the priest would be.

Thank you,
Franco

You don't really need a copy of the entire Catasto. Maybe the archives wwould be prepeared to search the records for the surnames you are researching and copy only those pages.
I have never requested this but I know some archives do have students who will undertake searches for a fee.

thanks for your reply Ann, yes that is an option but the cost is almost 2/3 of the whole book. I feel that if 2 or 3 people are able to obtain a copy then we could help others with Casacalenda roots in their search as well.

Hi, just an update : According to the State Archives in Naples the Catasto Onciario for Casacalenda does not exist. I had asked Riccardo to write to them for cost, and that was their reply. One was done in 1742 so I wonder what happened to it? I guess I've gone back as much as I can using the LDS films. Bummer.

Thank you Suanj, I will try and contact them. It was certainly done in 1742 so I find it hard to believe The Arcives in Naples don't have it.

I have made a request for a search of another Catasto for another area that the Naples Archives is holding. They referred me to an individual who will copy the pages for the family name I am researching for a cost of 150 euros. Not cheap but certainly not as expensive as paying for the whole record.

Hi Lilbees, thanks for your response. Can you give me the name of that individual? You can send me a private message if you don't want to post their name here.

Thanks, Franco

Franco...

I have found another researcher with family in Casacalenda that is also interested in this same information. She knows of two additional people that might be willing to add their names to the pot...

So what would be the cost for the entire record rather then just a surname?

Hi Susan, good to hear from you. I am trying to locate the Catasto for Casacalenda. Riccardo was nice enough to send an e-mail to The Archives in Naples requesting a quote and they replied back saying that they don't have the Catasto for Casacalenda. It was done in 1742 and they had previously said they could make a copy so don't know what's going on.
I have sent a couple of e-mails to two different groups but have not received an e-mail back yet. Sounds like we now have enough people interested to make it affordable when we locate it.

Regards,
Franco
