Birth Records for Giuseppi Audino

Postby FAAJR » 31 Mar 2011, 19:50

Hello:

I am looking for the birth records of my great gradfather; Giuseppi Audino; who came to the US in 1902. I believe he was born in Benestare; Reggio di Calabria, Italy in 1870. Would anyone be able to suggest the best course of action.

Thank you.

Hi and Welcome.

What you will need to do for the birth records is write to the town (comuni) here they were born in Italy.

Here are some helpfull links to get started on your research. I you need assistance with anythiong, please feel free to contct us.

http://www.visual.paginegialle.it/on_the_road
http://www.paginebianche.it/index.html
http://www.angelfire.com/ok3/pearlsofwi ... ello2.html

The first is a yellow pages of Italy, the second white pages, and the third is a website providing information on how to comose your letter to the comune.

What you will need to ask for is the nascite di certificato and something that would be helpful as well. The family History on his family. This will provide the marriage certificate of his parents, and all the brecords of any sibling he had. On each of the certifictes (if they stayed in Italy) it will also provide marriages, and dates of death as well.

Hope this helps

I would start in the States first get much info as you can ship manifest and naturalzation papers and census..Then get all you dates and birth locations
Then I would go to a Family Search Library and get the films on the records of Benestare; Reggio di Calabria and any other town they have a lot of towns in Italy microfilmed civil records birt/nati/death/morte and marriage

When ordering the films for Reggio Calabria would will more than likely be waiting a month or more since often these films are on back order. I don't have these films unfortunately on loan.

If you are only looking for one record, and you know the number of the microfilm it's on, you can request a photocopy of the record from Salt Lake. The cost is minimal and the more records you order the cheaper it becomes. - I have mis placed the link but perhaps someone here has it? Otherwise I will need to look it up for you once I get home from work.

Thank you everyone. I need to digest this information and appreciate the assistance. My family settled in New Castle, Pennsylvania; Lawrence, County. My Great Grandmother was named Angeline although not sure when they were married. From the information we have he came to US on Bartram Prince; 7 March 1902; from Naples, Italy.

Although it says his name was Giuseppi, my father called him Joe. From his naturalization papers; I found his birth year and the town from where he came from; Benestare; Reggio di Calabria, Italy in 1870.

My Great Grandmother seems to have come from Cardito, Naples di Campania, Italy; although not sure if this is correct.

Thanks again.
