Mauri and Mutti

Postby mdmontario » 21 Aug 2011, 04:48

My great grandfather Carlo Mauri was born in Civate, around 1859 but I don't know anything about his parents and ancestors. He married Matilda Mutti in Carlazzo (Como) in 1884. He moved to Canada in 1911 with my grand-father Luigi and all his relatives. As for his wife, Matilda, we just know of her father Domenico and that he died in 1895. Anyone who can help me further to look for my ancestors??? :D

When a couple were to be married they had to provide a certificate of their birth. These records were attached to the marriage registration and called "allegati" (attachments)

I found the allegati for Carlo and Matilde's marriage.

Carlo's certificate of birth (not the original record) issued by Civate on 6 October 1884.
Identifies him as Carlo Giuseppe Mauri
Born on 24 September 1859 to
Serafino and to Rosa Brusadelli
in Civate.

Image

Matilde's record...from town and parish of Carlazzo was issued 12 October 1884
Identifies her as Matilde Innocente Mutti
Born on 30 November 1862 to
Domenico and to Prudenza Vischi
in Carlazzo.

You can write to the civil registrations office as I stated above...
You can also write (especially for earlier records) to the local parish church. The church kept from from about the 14th or 15th century onward :-)
