Information from Italy

Postby Stella » 11 Nov 2004, 07:18

I was wondering how I find out information from Italy, such as birth certificates, marriage certificates? I think I need to write to the church in the town my realtives were from but how do I find the church to write to? I'm trying to connect relatives in Italy to my Great grandfather. I just do not have any other names other then his fathers and mothers name. Any sugestions would be good.

:D

Hi: if you have the names of your ancestors, you can to descover the birthplace and others info, searching on http://www.ellisisland.org/search/passSearch.asp? the ship's manifest of emigration..
For request certificates, if born or married after 1871, are necessary to request in birth's Common Office (normally, but many Commons are the birthregistries before 1871); if before and in the birth Common have not registries before 1871, you can to request in the church.. for exact church, are easy, why in the past, normally, in little villages or towns, was the Cathedral...

I have got a birthplace (Bozen - Bolzano), a date of birth (17 Oct 1909) and one (three) forename (Ernestina Aloisia Xenia). What can I do from Hungary?

Not, Xenia is an surname from Turkey or Greece, is not italian surname; Ernestina Aloisa are two first name (Aloisa as Eloisa), but Aloisa is an italian surname, also exist Aloiso, Aloisio, or also Aloisi (very common in all Italy)..you sure that Xenia is just or an similar version? "...enia"?
If you sure about surname, you send an request with letter object:"richiesta accertamento anagrafico relativo a Xenia Ernestina Aloisa nata a Bolzano il 17 Ottobre 1909."
