Is there a good place to go to start looking for military records. My great grandfather came to the US, but returned to Italy to server during WWI. I dont have any records, only what I have heard from the family.

Any suggestions? Thanks for your help
Hi, hoping well understood..
for all records in Italy about militar service and/or wars, are possible an search in Archivies of State in Italy, but are necessary for request, to know:
-name and surname
if you have this info, well, send an email to Archivio di Stato, of town's province ancestors was born... this are all Archive of State in Italy:

Military records are kept at the military district level, Therefore Province of Biella. In the letter you should address the Office of Conscription Records (registri degli Uffici di Leva). Include everything you know about your grandfather to make the search easier for them.
suanj appears to have located his town of origin, so the military district is the Province of Biella.
The letter must be written in Italian. I believe this is the correct address.
ARCHIVIO DI STATO DI BIELLA
via Triverio, 12 13900 BIELLA
the our friend have some double about my records, but I'm sure that this is just Sisto Polarolo ! In all ellisisland.org are only this record, my opinion is that this is he... and for birthrecord is possible to write in Salussola common....
many regards, suanj
