Hello... I am looking for information on how to trace my relatives in Italy.. My mother came to England in 1959 and was disowned by her family for marrying in England.... All the info i have is that she came from quindici avellino her name was Amelia Santaniello born on 13th april 1927 and she left behind 8 brothers and sisters...
You might want to try emailing the town for information first (but in Italian) or you could send a letter to the town via regular mail. Either way, you should provide as much specific information as you know.
Comune di Quindici
Piazza Municipio 1
83020 Quindici AV
to help you write in Italian, you can refer to one of the following websites:
I don't know that I can be of any help, I just found it interesting that the first time I log into this site I find your post containing my mother's family name. I just recently started researching my family history. My mother's father and grandfather (as far as I've gotten) are from Quindici Avellino. Their names are Angelo (her father)and Giuseppe (or Joseph her grandfather)Santaniello. Her father married Giuseppina Patranaggio. Her grandfather married Maria Lifta. I have no idea how much family, if any, is still in Italy. I haven't gone back that far yet, but hope to find more.
I don't know if you're aware of this....the Mayor of Quindici is Liberato Santaniello. How's that for coincidence??
Well I hope you find what you're looking for. I wrote down the information and will let you know if I find anything.
i happened to be browsing through older posts earlier this week and remember seeing one from 2008 in which the poster -- first names James, last name maybe began with a 'B', had uploaded copies of the actual 'civile' marriage records from Quindici that one could browse through. I believe he was considered a "master" user on the site. I am sorry I don't remember anymore details. I will nose around some more to try and locate the post.
