Got a great surprise yesterday... My long awaited birth certificate from Baveno for my great-grandmother, Maria Isabella Migliarina. She was born in Baveno in 1873 to Battiste Migliarina and Fiora Ferrario.
I have two questions... In the states, her name was Elisa. Is Elisa a nickname for Isabella?
Secondly, shall I just continue on with the civil in Baveno for more records? How far do they go back?
Also, FYI, I sent US dollars with these requests to Baveno and always get a reply. To Oleggio-Castello I sent an addressed envelop and have received nothing yet...
