Cerignola Italy Ancestry Records???

Postby djm1228 » 23 May 2011, 04:03

Hi - I think a part of my family might be from Cerignola Foggia Italy. Does anyone know if those records are available online? The last name I have interest in is Fino. Thanks,Diane

Try here first, see if you can find anything: https://www.familysearch.org/. Enter your family name and put "Cerignola" in the "Place" box, then click search. On the left side of the next page, click "Birth Place" (or Marriage or Death...) and then selcet Europe from the short list. Now scroll through the results in the right column.

Next step would be to consider ordering FHL microfilms for viewing at your local Mormon church; films are available for the period of 1809 to 1899 - see http://www.familysearch.org/eng/library/fhlcatalog/supermainframeset.asp?display=titlefilmnotes&columns=*%2C0%2C0&titleno=40961&disp=Registri+dello+stato+civile+di+Cerignola++.

Finally, if you have some reasonable detail - like you can narrow a birth or marriage down to a period of a few years - you can simply write to the comune and request copies of records. The address would be:

Ufficio dello Stato Civile
Comune di Cerignola
Palazzo di Città
71042 Cerignola FG
ITALY

Email: stato.civile@comune.cerignola.fg.it
Web: http://www.comune.cerignola.fg.it/hh/index.php

Birth/marriage/death photocopies of original registry pages are called: Copia integrale dell'atto di Nascita/Matrimonio/Morte. These are more difficult to read but contain lots of additional useful information compared to...

Birth/marriage/death computer-generated extracts are: Estratto Per Riassunto Per Atto Di Nascita/Matrimonio/Morte

Write only in Italian; you can find sample letters on this board (try searching) or at:
