Research Cathedral Archives San Leo

Postby iolanda2 » 01 Oct 2009, 20:58

Would like help from someone local who can help in my research in San Leo.

All the baptismal and marriage information is in the Cathedral archieves.

I have exact dates. The family names are: Serpieri, Ghirardelli, Marini, and Semprini

Don Lino Tosi, would not let me research while I was in San Leo during febrario 2009.

They may not have let you personally search the records, but did you request if they could search for you? Or if they could recommend someone who could do this research?
It is my understanding that prior permission must be obtained to personally research these records.......I would suggest contacting member Trevisan who has experience with parish records.

How do I contact Trevisan. I wrote 2 letter prior to my visit to San Leo. I had relatives speak with this priest and he STILL WOULD NOT HELP me.

Your spelling is most likely correct. I was told by the ladies who work in the Ufficio in San Felice sul Panaro that is an idiom that translates to'mean old priest'

Grumpy or not he must have furnished a reason why he would not permit research of the records he is authorized as custodian to maintain? =Peter=

Research in the former ( secretive ) Papal States is a hugh challenge compared to Modena. This priest, having received 2 letters prior to my trip to San Leo, told my relatives that he was in his other parish in San Marino and could not accomodate me.

I would agree with that statement, even civil records are limited in availability, the Lds has stated that if my town of origin is not filmed, it more than likely won't be...... :?

I now understand better and suggest that perhaps a letter from your own archbishop to "grumpy" asking for his cooperation. Depending upon how deeply you wish to achieve your research objectives look at this as the first step on your way to the Papal Secretary's office. =Peter=
