orphanage in ricizzoni

Postby poppee » 17 Apr 2010, 07:31

I am looking for an orphanage that my father was taken to in 1939 as a baby. It was in Ricizzoni.
He was also given the surname GERMANO. Was this usual process?
I am also trying to track down his birth certificate where would i start?

I am just starting my research so any help, or advice would be greatly appreciated.
Regards,

Oh, it's Rizziconi no Ricizzoni :D

This is the site of the Municiplaity of Rizziconi:

http://www.comune.rizziconi.rc.it/

this is for the Municipality of Varapodio

Actually Ricizzoni is where he was born. I am not sure where the orphanage was.

You have the correct birth date form the Carta D'Identità and also the Record details...
See the third and fourth line of the Carta d'Identità

...
nato il .........
(Atto n. ..... p..... S. ....)


You can write to the Comune of Rizziconi and ask for his birth certificate using these dates...
It's not important to know the name of the orphanage because the Comune has his record of the birth...

Here some form letters:

There was an orphanage in Polistena which is about 14 kilometers away. This is where my great grandfather was adopted from in about 1906. Not sure if it still would have been there 30+ years later. You are lucky you know where he was born. I have requested microfilm from Polistena but not really sure if if my g grandfather was born there.

Good Luck
