Obtaining Stato di Famiglias (Forno di Rivara)

Postby Irishinamerica » 11 Mar 2011, 06:46

Hello,

I have started the undertaking of researching my Italian roots and have had a lot of luck with the civil registration records that I have obtained from the LDS Family History Library.

However, I have gathered that part of my family came to America (between 1893 and 1907) from Forno di Rivara, Piedmonte - and that most of the family remained in Italy.

If I wanted to obtain Stato di Famiglias from Forno di Rivara ...who should I be writing to?

Or would I be better off trying to obtain a document called anagrafe? I am new to Italian research - but I have been able to find a lot through the Stato Civile.

Anagrafe is the Census Office, Ufficio di Stato Civile is the Vital Record Office.

To get birth, marriage, death records you must write to the Ufficio di Stato Civile, while to get a Stato di Famiglia you have to write to Anagrafe.

Anagrafe and Stato Civie belong to the same department: Servizi Demografici.

Rivara is a small Comune and the the two offices may be managed by the same person.

The email is anagrafe @ comune.rivara.to.it

The postal address is

Comune di Rivara - Servizi Demografici
Via B Grassa 26
10080 Rivara TO
Italy

Cool! Thank you so much for the email and the address! I know that the letter should be in Italian...but if I email them should the message be in Italian?

I have the Atti di Nascita's for the individuals that I am looking for. When I mail them, should I include them so that they can easily match up the records with the death records?

I am looking for a relative that came to the US - but returned to Italy around 1919. I know that she returned to Forno di Rivara. But without an idea of when she died - I could be looking at microfilms a while!

Hi.
I live in the area and I can tell you that Forno di Rivara was once an hamlet of the Rivara's Comune, but it's a Comune on its own since 3 centuries ago. So you have to direct your inquiries not to Rivara's city hall, but to Forno Canavese (this is the official denomination since 1927).
Here is the link to the official website: www.comune.fornocanavese.to.it .

Hope this helps.
Ciao,
Maurizio

I had this same question on another thread, and was referred to this thread. SO you live near Forno Canavese? Can you tell me, is there a parish in Rivara separate from Canavese?
I am still trying to understand this comune structure.
Thanks
