Ischia di Castro, Viterbo, Lazio, Italy - Ortensi or Ortenzi

Postby z010121 » 08 Jan 2014, 20:24

My Grandfather was born in Ischia di Castro, Viterbo, Lazio, Italy in 1879, his name was either Stefano Ortensi or Ortenzi. He came to the US around 1906. His first stop was Loraine, Ohio and he stayed with his Brother Carlos. He died in 1947, in Harlan County, Kentucky. Could any one please tell me how I can find out about relatives in Italy? I would love to know who my Great Grand Parents were.

You can contact the Commune of Ischia di Castro here:

Comune di Ischia di Castro
Via S. Rocco, 2 - 01010 ISCHIA DI CASTRO (VT)
TEL. 0761/425455 FAX 0761/425456
MAIL: segreteria@comune.ischiadicastro.vt.it
PEC: protocollo@pec.comune.ischiadicastro.vt.it.

I see from an Internet search that they have an historical archive, you might ask if they can do researches for you.

Also, from a search on Italian White Pages, it turns out that there is only one Ortensi, and no Ortenzi's (but of course not all numbers are public):

If I remember correctly Ischia is one of the few places able to supply a Stato di Famiglia easily.
Pippo, most Comunes have an historical archive. They are usually inaccessible and very dirty and unheated. Most won't do research as such although they are required to respond to specific requests with names and dates.

I did send a request for assistance, but no reply. I did not get a PM from you Pippo. Can you resend it? It may have gone into my spam, and I deleted it.
