WWI Military Death Records

Postby Helen D. » 21 Sep 2011, 04:41

My Grandfather Died in the Italian ARMY during WWI. He died in November 1918 of the Spanish Flu. His body was never sent home. Trying to find out where he is buried. His Name was Guissepe Donvito, he was from Bari, from Gioia del Colle. He was married to Giulia Milano. Mothers name was Maria Domenica Speranza. I have his death certificate dated 1919, its written in Italian and I cannot read it. Can anyone help me find out his buried place.

Write surname in field "cognome" and click "avvia ricerca"
I checked, and it should be there.

Thank you both, this means so much to me. My mother searched before her death and could not find him. My grandmother was never told where he was buried. He died when my mother was 6 months old. She was always so sad, for never getting to know him or find his grave.
