How to get records from Italy?

Postby shawna2277 » 21 Dec 2013, 03:06

My grandparents came to Boston from Italy around 1906. They were married here and I have their marriage license which has their parents names. Their surnames were Coviello and DeSisto and they were from Bonito & Apice Italy. How do I get more information from Bonito & Apice about their parents? I can't find anything else out from Ancestry.com or failysearch.org.

From you earlier post
I am researching my great-grandparents. I found their marriage certificate in Boston 1906 and some census info but this is all I have

Groom Benedetto Coviello b. 1883-4 from Bonito Italy. Immigrated 1902
father: Lucio Coviello, Italy
Mother: Maria DeSimony (aka DeSimone)

Bride Maria DeSista (aka Molly or Amalia DeSisto) b. 1882 from Avellino? Apice?
Father: Guiseppe DeSista
Mother: Rosaria Masiello

I don't think my g-g-granparents immigrated here but I am not sure. How do I go about finding more information on them? It seems I've looked through thousands of records

Benedetto Coviello, "United States World War II Draft Registration Cards, 1942"
Name: Benedetto Coviello
Event Type: Draft Registration
Event Date: 1942
Event Place: Lynn, Essex, Massachusetts

What I would do is get the film records from Family History Library of Bonito (Avellino), 1809-1910 Births, marriages, banns, deaths, citizenship records, miscellaneous documents, ten year indexes. Then you can verify the parents names ages and dates. Click on the prompts for information
