looking for my great grand father

Postby habib » 21 Oct 2010, 23:26

I am looking for my great grandfather birth certificate. He, Jacinto Maglioni Viale, was born approximately between 1860-1870. I am not sure the date and city where he was born. However, I know that he serves the Italian army before he move to Colombia.

My great grandmother told us that my great grandfather, Jacinto Maglioni Viale, has brother or cousin missioner called Raphael/Raphaello Maglioni. Searching in internet in the database “Catholic Diocesanâ€

Maybe you can start with requesting the birth record of Raffaello Maglioni, so to read the names of his parents, if her mother is a Viale, that means that Giacinto was a brother.
This is a first step.

You should write a letter, only in italian, to

Comune
Ufficio dello Stato civile
Palazzo Vecchio
Piazza Signoria
50122 Firenze
Italy

I hope it helps

If he was born in Florence area, his military record (if any) is kept at Florence state archive http://www.archiviodistato.firenze.it/nuovosito/
For sure you need to give a complete name and date and place of birth to have that record

I hope it helps
