DeCillis

Postby danielle1118 » 14 Jul 2012, 02:07

Hello,

I am looking to research my gg grandmother through LDS records. It appears she came from Potenza? I don't know if I need to know the commune(village) or will Potenza cover the entire region? Her name was Josephine DeCillis b. 1870 daughter of Giuseppe DeCillis and Anna Marie Ricigliano. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Hello danielle1118 :-)

Did your GGGM immigrate? We might find a town from immigration records...

The civil registrations (births, marriages, deaths) are held at the comune/town level.
POTENZA is both a comune and province. So maybe a good place to start would be the Comune of Potenza :-)

Edit to add:
Checked the annual birth indexes for 1869, 1870, 1871 in Potenza, but no De Cillis :(

Thank you for your responses. I looked up available LDS microfilms and it seems they are not available for San Fele, Potenza for births around 1870. What remaining options do I have? I sent a request about a year ago but never received a response. Are these records available anywhere else or at this point would my best option be to hire a genealogist? Is there anyone that could be recommended?
I truly appreciate all your help and advice- again my heartfelt thanks

I've sent THREE letters and finally faxed them all (3 weeks ago) for this same information as well, Danielle. I kindly asked for them to either email, fax or mail the information back. In two of the letters, I sent 2 (for a total of 4) international postal replies. I've even sent 20 Euro in each letter "for their kind assistance". I, of course, photocopied all of that and attached it to the fax.

Still no response from San Fele.

At wits end at this point...
