Looking for Farinola family of Bari/Molfetta

Postby aussiefarinola » 16 Dec 2013, 12:56

Hi,
I'm trying to research the family tree for my children and have hit a major wall when it comes to my husband's grandparents. I know when they were born and where (according to their headstone) but I can't get any other information of their parents etc. Because I cannot speak or read Italian, it makes it really hard to research.

The furthest I can find is the following:

Saverio Farinola
B: 03-OCT-1908 Molfetta, Italy
D: 14-JAN-2004 Port Pirie, South Australia

Teresa Farinola (nee Porcelli)
B: 28-SEP-1917 Molfetta, Italy
D: 13-NOV-1995 Port Pirie, South Australia

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

Cheryl Farinola

The main sites for genealogical research are:
familysearch.org and ancestry.com
familysearch is free and provides search by name, as well as acts browsing
moreover antenati.san.beniculturali.it is a project that will in the future publish all images of BMD records from National Archives; this project is being performed by FamilySearch in collaboration with Culture National Agency.
Of course you must be smart enough to know where to look and what to look for. But this is just a question of experience.

Thank you Pippo. I use both of those sites and have had no trouble with my side of the family but have really struggled with my husband's side. I don't know if its just because of my inability to translate or I am just searching in the wrong way. I will keep trying though as its a personal challenge for me and I love a good challenge :)

Thank you too Marty. I appreciate the help from both of you immensely.
