Advice on Finding Ancestor Records for Morrone del Sannio

Postby jalfonso475 » 14 Sep 2013, 05:57

Does anyone have any advise on how to find ancestral records for Morrone?

Sirname is Alfonso. (Giovanni born 1894)

I've also heard about family "nicknames". Does anyone know the significance of this in searching?

Thank you!

This is wonderful information! Thank you!

My grandfather came to the US in 1910 and unfortunately not much information about his life in Italy or the rest of the family was given. I had his parents names and I've always wanted to try to build the family tree back farther than his this.

Hopefully there will be indexing and searching of the records in the future! I know it will help answer a lot of questions for a lot of people.

Thank you again!

The links you provided have been wonderful! Since I knew the names of my grandfather's sisters I was able to find their birth records as well. Could I trouble you with the following questions?

1 - On my grandfather's birth record, there is a notation for what I believe is his marriage - can you translate please?

2 - Can you translate the images on the following links/records please?

Marriage information for Angelica Alfonso - Record #123 at this link -
