My GGF was born in Calabria in 1883, moved to Argentina in 1898 with a brother, nephew and uncle and got a son in 1918, died in 1928. The mother of his son was of Spanish heritage but didn't have any parents and spend most her life in an orphanage. They never married.
From what I heard from my mom there was quite a family uproar because he didn't have kids with an Italian woman.
The problem I am having is that I can't locate the birth certificate of my GF Hugo Luis Russo. I also can't find the bautism-act but he married for the church.
My question is the following, how likely is it that in the 1910/1920's the church would not accept a bautism on the reason the parents were not married? And what are the odds the 30 years later accepted to marry a person who didnt have his bautism? And what could the church do to solve this?
And another question that is related. My GGF name was Giovanni(Juan) Russo, his son Hugo Luis Russo and both the marriage and death certificate state that Juan Russo was his father. So it seems to me he must have recognized his son straight away but somehow I can't locate the birth certifcate of Hugo Luis Russo.
Anybody got a possible explaination for this and a possible sollution to find this certificate?
