Family Research - Unsure where to look next

Postby ncolonna » 09 Oct 2013, 05:21

Hi,

I've been researching my family and have received some documents from the Commune in Bari, however it appears I've gotten as far as I can and need some suggestions as to other steps I can take to take my search further.

I know the names of my second great grand-father & grand-mother, however I do not have their birth years and the communte requires that to get documents on them. Their names are Nicola Colonna & Grazia Gaetana Scarpelli. I know they were born & most likely married before 1885 as my great-grandfather was born 1885.

I was able to take one side of the family a bit further but got stuck again. I know my 3rd great-grandfather was Francesco Valenzano (born 1819 in Rutigliano) whose father was Vito Giuseppe Valenzano. Unfortunately I don't have an age for Vito Giuseppe and can't take the line back any further.

Any help/suggestions on how I can go about getting more information/records would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Nick

Thank you both for the replies. Marty, how did you know what year to look under? I ask cause I have other relatives I'm researching and would like to be able to find more information as opposed to coming here and asking for help all the time.

Much appreciated!
