Researching church records

Postby giorgi77 » 05 Jul 2012, 13:38

Does anyone have any advise on the best way to go about researching church records in person? I'm making a trip to Frosinone (specifically Torrice) and would like to see if I can review church ancestry logs while there.

Thanks

Hmmm. Records in San Pietro go back to 1650. They are a bit funny in that area. I have never searched Torrice but was refused in nearby Strangolagalli. Priest is/was Don Mauro. 0776.300078. According to my Diocese book the records are not organised and the priest will occasionally allow a 'studioso' to look at the records.

Thanks for replying. From the sound of it, I'm probably going to have a tough time getting the priest(s) to let me review them....though I definitely want to try.

Are you familiar with any of the churches in Torrice? I believe there are 3 (hence the name of the town :) ). Any specific one that I should go to? Recommendations on how to approach/what to say to the priest(s) about these documents?

Thanks
