Grandfather's WW1 Military Records

Postby BronxApostle » 21 Jan 2012, 04:37

Hello,

I'm looking for some guidance on the best way to obtain my Grandfather's WW1 Italian military records. My grandfathers name is Antonio Marinaro and he was from the town of Bonefro, Campobasso, Abruzzi. He served with the famed Bersaglieri. He was shot but survived his wounds and eventually passed away as a result of mustard gas poisoning in 1936 or 1937. He was married to Maria Teresa and had 3 children, Giuseppe, Carmela and Santa.

Any help that you can provide me would be greatly appreciated!

Grazie!

BA

If your sure he was born in the comune of Bonefro and the province of Campobasso. You can get the Conscription records also called registri di leva or Liste di estrazione di Leva. There are two copies of them; one is held in the military archive of each military district and there it remains, the other is initially held by the Procura della Repubblica,(Country Court at province level) and after 75 years, it is sent to the State Archive of the main province.
Remember all documents held by the State Archive are available for public consultation.(cpoyright myif.com)
