hi my mom has 7 siblings. 2 of the birth certificates say my grand father was born in campobasso italy the rest say Brazil. my gggrand parents marriage says they were born in ururi campobasso italy. my grand fathers passport ( i have the original) 1916 says he was born in ururi campobasso italy 1903. i did send for the birth record. my question if his mother was visiting in brazil and he was born ther how can i research brazil, or where would i start looking? totally confused
I have had zero luck in trying to get an Italian passport for my relatives during this period. I found my grandparents birth records in the civil records in the place of birth in Italy, The marriage records were found in the parrish church in Brazil then they registered their marriage 3 years later in Italy when they returned.
My grandparents , both born in Italy, met and married in Brazil while working a 5 year contract on a coffee plantation. I found their marriage certificate at the church where they married in Brazil. It has difficult because the church was non responsive. The first child was born in Brazil, then they returned to italy and the rest of the children were born. My grandparents travelled without passports to Brazil then to the US ( no passports ). although I know the application for passports were issued by the comune in which they lived. My grandparents had a second civil marriage ceremony in Italy when they returned.
