Fondi, and DeAngelis

Postby GreenMan415 » 05 Feb 2010, 22:19

Hello everyone,

I stumbled upon this webpage while doing some work on ancestory.com. This is a great place from what I can see in assisting others in finding family history over-seas.

Reason I am posting is I am having issues finding any information on my family in Fondi, Italy. The webpage for the town unfortunately is in Italian and not speaking the language sort of hurts. The person I am looking for is Gerardo Deangelis, from Fondi, Italy born apx 1844 from the 1900's census record I can find as well as his immigration paperwork. However it stops there. Any help would be great or at least a push in the right direction.

The other question I have is in the US we have always at least with my middle name and my grandfather etc put the De together with the rest of the last name so it is DeAngelis. Is this correct grammer in Italy or should it be De Angelis with a space?

Thank you,

William DeAngelis Woodhams

Not sure if you knew this or not but the seat of information for Fondi is through Itri - the next town over. Parish records will be found in each local church naturally but if you want to search through FHC films, Itri is the key - all records would be written in local offices in the huge vital records ledgers but the information was sent to Itri for formal registering. By the way, Fondi is a lovely town with some of the friendliest people! I love shopping there and the piazza is a wonderful experience on Sunday afternoons complete with strolling musicians! We sit for hours with espresso listening! We have extended family who live there and also our "best man" and children's godparents live there!

Another thought - when you are ready to translate, I found copies of all the normal forms online that are translation with blanks for the names and dates - you will become very adept quickly at recognizing the information you are looking for! The forms almost always used identical formats for each type of form - birth, marriage, death, etc. Your trouble will begin about 140 and back as they revert to completely handwritten old Italian, Latin!
