Death Records for Racalmuto, Agrigento, Sicily

Postby ilona » 18 Jun 2013, 17:53

I would like to find records after 1910 which is last date for FHC microfilms. Any contact addresses--church or civil would be helpful or someone locally who can help. I did visit the town in 2003, but did not have much information at that time. I was given the name of the parish priest at that time but we were unable to find him at his home or the church at the time and he has since died. Thanks.

Normally civil records are not released until they are minimally 110 years old. To contact civil records for Racalmuto, the city hall address is - via Vittorio Emanuele, n. 15 - 92020 Racalmuto - ITALY. Ask for the Ufficio Dello Stato Civile.

Racalmuto is in the arch diocese of Agrigento. Their website is - http://www.webdiocesi.chiesacattolica.i ... gina=24066
I have never had a response from contacting the Catholic Church, but give it a try. The older church records for Racalmuto are kept at the Church of the Annunziata. Their website is - http://www.webdiocesi.chiesacattolica.i ... ifp=&vis=1

I am curious as to what surnames from Racalmuto you are searching for since I have ancestors that were born there too. Some that are my family are - Puma, Grillo, Carlino, Ippolito, Mantia, Barone, Curto, Fantauzzo, Carrubba, Vella, Giudice, Liolta, Giordano, etc.

I also had some luck emailing the mayor of racalmuto - sindaco.racalmuto@pec.anci.it
Just be sure that all correspondence is in Italian. I use the Google translator.
