ISO WW1 Military Records

Postby LinJ47 » 19 Jul 2010, 18:40

Does anyone know how I could find the WW1 Records for my Great Uncle? I do not have access to Ancestry. The info I have on him is:

Name: Filadelfio SALANITRO
DOB: 23 Jan 1895 in San Fratello, Sicily
Parents: Eloisa LATTERI & Alfio SALANITRO of San Fratello, Sicily

I do not know if he was married and if so, if he had any children. I believe he died in a plane crash during his service. I do have his birth certificate and a WW1 photo of him. On the back of the photo is written:

"Fred (Filadelfio) Salanitro - Grandma Rizzo's brother- died in World War #1
shot down from plane"

Any suggestions would be much appreciated!

Thank you,
Linda @ The Jersey Shore ~~~~~~~~

I apologize for the silly question, but was he serving in the Italian military when he died? If so, then you should be able to find him here http://www.difesa.it/Templates/OnorCadu ... HINT=Guest but the only Salanitro's that come up are Carmelo and Natale. Sometimes you need to try many alternate spellings before finding the correct record.

Nevertheless, if he did serve in the Italian military, you should be able to obatin his complete military records by writing to the provincial archives for his place of birth following the procedure mentioned in this thread: http://italiangenealogy.com/Forums/viewtopic/t=15162/

The address to write to would be:

Archivio di Stato di Messina
Via XXIV Maggio isol. 291, n.18
98122 Messina
ITALY

Thanks so much for those links and my apologies for not including the fact that Filadelfio SALANITRO was indeed in the ITALIAN ARMY! How could I have overlooked including that info?!!! LOL!

Ciao Riccardo,

In all my excitement yesterday I forgot to ask you where you found the record of my Great Uncle, Filadelfio Salanitro's military experience and subsequent death. It looks like you scanned it from a book. I would like to source this information.

Stupid question, my command of the Italian language is "cosi-cosi" at best, do you think I should try to write to those addresses in Italian or should I just stick to English? I am ok with standard letters but with this I think the request is more complicated.

How I WISH my parents had taught me to speak Italian! Unfortunately they kept it all to themselves!

Thanks so much,
Linda :o)

Linda,

Riccardo pulled that one on us in the past; I asked him where it came from and he linked to this site: http://www.cadutigrandeguerra.it/

Here is a google translation of the same site which should help you find your way around: http://translate.google.com/translate?u ... iso-8859-1

Your question about how to write the archives was answered in my post above.

Could anyone help please. I am trying to find information on my Iaconelli family. Everything is at a dead end the only clue I have left is that my grandmother had a young brother called Alberto who was killed in ww1. I have found only one person of this name on the military csduti nella guerra. The name, date of birth and father all fit in.
He was born in Trieste. My grandmother said she was from Caserta. There could be a link with Trieste as her mother was Czech or German. If it is the right Alberto he may have been born in Trieste but then lived in Caserta.
He is supposed to be on a roll of honour but nothing comes up.I have tried the Ministero della difesa but nothing there. I do not know which town or commune to write to for his records as I don't know where he lived. Any one got any ideas ?
Thanks Brit605
