Marco/Marcoguiseppe from Anzi

Postby chrisdamato » 16 Mar 2013, 00:23

I am looking for information on two of my ancestors, Giovanni Marcoguiseppe, born in 1863 and his son Michael, born in 1890. I'm having trouble finding their birth records from Italy. Any help would be appreciated.

Do libraries now have full world access to Ancestry.com?? Just wondering if I can go search for Marco records there.

Not sure about ALL public libraries have this access, but certainly, your local Family History Center/Library (LDS Church) has this access.

FYI - I have a world subscription to Ancestry, and I checked Anzi - Unfortunately, birth indexes AND birth records are not there for 1863 (starts with 1866) and 1890 (missing)

You may wish to write directly to the comune of Anzi :-)

Address:
Ufficio dello Stato Civile
Via Garibaldi
85010 Anzi (PZ)

WOW!!! This is amazing. His name was actually Rocco, not Michele. Thank you so much for finding this. I don't understand why this record never came up in my search on the FamilySearch website.

I do have the marriage record that you attached first. I just can't find the birth records. Thank you again.

I hope it wasn't too much trouble for you. I may ask you for more information in the future.

Thanks again,

Chris

Hi Chris,
Glad to have helped :-)

As for the birth act for Rocco Michele Marcogiuseppe - I found it by going page-by-page through the records for Anzi. Here is the link on familysearch.org

https://familysearch.org/search/image/i ... %3D2043547

BONUS! Here is the birth record of Giovanni's wife, Maria Carmela Missanelli in 1867

REcord #37
Dated 20 march 1867 at 5 PM at the town office in Anzi
Appearing before the official was Maria Ruggieri, daughter of deceased Pio, age 38, midwife residing in Anzi, to present a female child born to Rosa Missanelli and unknown father on 20 March at noon at the home of her parents.
The child was given the name Maria Carmela Missanelli
Witnesses to the recording of the act:
Antonio Mocciola, 30, carpenter; and Rocco Garramone, 50, peasant farmer, both residing on Via Vittorio Emanuele in Anzi.

I wonder if the witness to Maria Carmela's birth, Rocco Garramone, was related somehow to Giovanni's mother???

Always a possibility, but you would have to trace the families back to find the "connection" :-)
