Mignella in Bojano, Campobasso, Molise

Postby Jame827 » 26 Dec 2010, 16:58

I've had recent luck on here regarding my last post. I was hoping to find out some similar information / documents for my grandmothers side of the family.

My grandmothers maiden name is Mignella. Her father was either Carmine or Carmen. I have a document that says he was from Bojano but that's about all I know. He came to America during the late 1800's and would have settled in Pittsburgh, PA. Would anyone be able to get his petition for naturalization and intention forms? That would be really great.

Also, does anyone know if it is possible to order Italian birth certificates? I'd really like to buy them but I am unsure about online security and whether or not it would be the real deal.

Thank you
