Limosano or Rocca Pia

Postby Berarducci » 22 Jan 2014, 06:41

I am travelling to limosano and to rocca pia in March of 2014. I am visiting the birth places of my great grandparents.
My great grandmother Filomenia Minotti was born in limosano March 16, 1880. Her mothers name was Maria and father was James Minotti. She married my great grandfather Antonio Berarducci who was born in Rocca Pia March 15 1865 to Cristins Berarducci and Rose Di Tullis. They had two children in italy before they immigrated to canada and settled in Revelstoke, B.C. Canada

I am looking for any descendants of this family that may be living in this area. If anyone has any information or knows of how I could find out more information that would be greatly appreciated.

If you have copies of their birth records which supply the address, then go to that street and start asking around. Chances are the family still live n that same street.
Otherwise go to the anagrafe office in the town hall (Municipio) and ask them which street your family lived on.
If you don't speak Italian, prepare a written request (keep it simple and direct).
Alternately go to the church, if it isn't open, ask at the closest bar who has the key.
Good luck.

I do not have their birth records. Is there a registrar office that would have access to these?
Thanks for the information

The anagrafe office at the town hall. Prepare something written to take in case no one speaks English.

Cristino mothers name is Laura Polcini/Polcino its done both ways on the records and it looks like Benigno Berarducci was born in Pettorano sul Gizio a town in the Province of L'Aquila in the Abruzzo region so it looks like that's where you have to go to go back further on the Berarducci side

When you go to Italy you should stop in Pettorano sul Gizio town in the Province of L'Aquila for that is where Benigno Berarducci was born and baptized that's where you will find earlier records in the church registry. I would copy and take this record with you and bring it to the church of San Nicola with you to get back further in your family history the towns of Rocca Pia and Pettorano sul Gizio are only 10km apart.
1796 Mar 23rd in the town of Pettorano (church was San Nicola in Pettorano he was baptized in ) birth of Benigno Berarducci born in Pettorano son of Filippo Berarducci and Barbara Cipriani

Heres the birth of Laura Polcini baptized in the church of Santa Maria Maggiore 1, Piazza Municipio - Rocca Pia I would do the same copy this and take this to the church of Santa Maria Maggiore with you

1807 May 14th in the town of Rocca Pia birth of Lauria Maria Antonia Polcini daughter of Cresenzo Polcini (son of deceased Michele) and Maria di Paolo
