My Great Great Grandfather was responsible for the set up of a tile factory in or near of Milan so took his family for a while to live in Italy. Where would l be able to find records of this as it has left a big gap in being able know more about them since they left England just prior to 1900 as his last child was born in Milan, is there also the possiblilty to locate birth records for him also? Names that l am trying to find in or around Milan would be Ambrose Wood and birth records for his son Stanley Richard Wood. Would records have been kept for families of non Italian nationality in that time living there? Thanks
Hi, There are records for a Stanley Richard Wood on ancestry.com. There is a military record stating Stanley Richard Wood was born 1899. Birthplace: St. Christopher (maybe the church) , Milan Italy. His father was Ambrose Edward Wood.
Yep have the basics but just wondered if there would be any other records? But missed the St Christopher's bit thanks. Would love to find out how long my Ambrose's family lived in Italy for as they just disappeared from the UK and then showed up again? I believe they also went to Brazil and maybe Russia also? So pin pointing this and finding out where in Italy they lived would be great! I could also be looking the wrong way and could anyone suggest where to locate the tile factory - Ambrose was an Chemist and delt with the coloration of tiles etc.
