Leone family history

Postby Leone22 » 22 Aug 2012, 05:56

HI there,

I am looking for some family history which is very difficult to find as my grandparents won't tell all the details.

Before my grandfather passed away it was revealed that his father was left on someone's door step to be raised. According to my grandmother and what she knows is that the woman that gave birth to my great grandfather got pregnant out of wedlock had the baby in secret and left him on someone's door step. BUT there could be other possibilities like maybe the woman was raped during the Persian golf war??

What I do know is this:

My great grandfathers name was Salvatore Quintino Leone or simply Quintino Leone (we are not sure)

His birthday is Feb 12 1897 born in Olivadi Calabria

Buried in Milano

What i'm trying to find out is the name of his parents as listed on his birth certificate or death certificate.

where can I search for this information.

any advice or answers are helpful.

Thank you so much.

Great ideas from 'Italysearcher' and 'T' :D on this post:

Also, since you have his birth date, you can write to Olivadi for his birth record

well the thing is I could very well do that but I have this feeling that his birth certificate will only say NN under the parents name since he was abandoned.

Do you or anyone else know what to do or how to conduct a search if that is the case?
