Locating relatives in Positano

Postby signy » 08 Jan 2011, 23:16

My great-grandmother Concetta Attanasio was born in Positano on January 13, 1861. Is there any way I could find out if I still have relatives living in Positano?
Thank you.

Peg,

If the "x" is no longer available for you to delete, just choose the "edit" and delete the post. However, you must leave "something" in the post... so leave the message "deleted" or whatever you choose. :-)

Thanks, T.
Yes, the x wasn't there this time and I couldn't figure out how to delete the duplication. My browser seems to give me a problem at certain times of the day.

Thank you very much for your response. My relatives spoke to one of the people you listed several years ago, but he did not have information from his grand or great-grand parent's generations.
I know my great-grandmother's parent's names, including her mother's maiden name. I was wondering if it was possible to find out if she had siblings, and to find out their descendant's names.

This is the official website for the town:

http://www.comune.positano.sa.it/dettag ... =53&sid=82

this is an email address for the town's anagrafe or registry office which houses vital records:

anagrafe@comune.positano.sa.it (no spaces in the email address)

any correspondence with the town would have to be in Italian

Thank you again for the information. Do you mean that if I contact the second listing, I can get help sending a message in Italian to the first listing?
