Help finding Dolce birth records from Accettura

Postby jkwaszak » 13 Feb 2014, 21:16

Through assistance on this web site I have discovered Francesco Dolce, who traveled to New Jersey, United States in Nov 1906, was from Accettura. I know he had a sister Serafina, and at least two brothers Rocco and Michael, also from Accettura.

Francesco Dolce, b. 10 August 1884
Serafina Dolce (married Nicola D'Alaimo ?), b. about 1877
Rocco Dolce, b. 15 April, 1888
Michael Dolce, b. ?

I am trying to find out how to get birth records and information in an effort to try to find more info about them, and work my way back to their parents and farther.

I am grateful for any assistance or suggestions anyone can provide.

Unfortunately, records for the years you need are not online. Also, the town's records pre 1900 on microfilm are organized by marriage processetti only, so if you find a marriage for an ancestor, you may get extracts of the bride and groom's birth records, death records for previous spouses, and possibly death records for their parents and grandparents. If you know the exact date of birth for an ancestor, to get his/her birth record, you need to order Matera Province microfilm which has different Matera province towns on it in alpahabetical order. But you have to either know the year of birth exactly or be within a year of the date, as you will only get one or two years of a particular type of record on a roll of microfilm. The research therefore can be very time consuming and extremely costly to do.

Here's a listing of the town's microfilm

Thanks Erudita, the page is very misleading, you have to follow all the links to see that the only records they have on line are from 1900 +.
I suppose I should have taken a clue from the fact the records on line are listed as from the Tribunale and not the State Archives.
Can't you tell I don't do many 'film' or 'on line' searches:-)

Ann,
I only knew because, back in the early 1990s, I was looking for an 1895 birth record for my one grandmother from the town of Stigliano in Matera Province. So I rented that town's microfilms, only to find that they were primarily Processetti, and the 1895 births were not there. I had pretty much just started my Italian research, and was so upset, that I ended up quitting the research for months. Then I discovered the Matera Province microfilms-all 220 rolls of them. So I chose which of those to do, as I certainly could never do all 220 of them because of the expense and time involved. What was discouraging was that, even though a film indicated that a town was on it for a particular year and particular type of record, sometimes the records for that town, for the year in question, were missing from the film, and you had no way to know this until you rented the roll and looked through it. I did end up doing a lot of those films at a later time though, but I only looked at the records on the films for the town of Stigliano.

jkwaszak,

I've been researching Accettura records for several years and collaborating with a couple of other people on this list. I may be able to help you. More soon, after I check my records.

Re: Help finding Dolce birth records from Accettura

Through assistance on this web site I have discovered Francesco Dolce, who traveled to New Jersey, United States in Nov 1906, was from Accettura. I know he had a sister Serafina, and at least two brothers Rocco and Michael, also from Accettura.

Francesco Dolce, b. 10 August 1884
Serafina Dolce (married Nicola D'Alaimo ?), b. about 1877
Rocco Dolce, b. 15 April, 1888
Michael Dolce, b. ?

I am trying to find out how to get birth records and information in an effort to try to find more info about them, and work my way back to their parents and farther.


I searched images I have of the Indici Decennali for births from Accettura and found these:

Dolce_Births_fr_Accettura_IndiciDecennali1876-85.jpg


Dolce_Births_fr_Accettura_IndiciDecennali1886-95.jpg


In the first image (from FHL film #1660159), the Dolce births are at the upper left followed by the year and record number. You should read the images yourself, but I transcribe them as follows:

Dolce Filomena Serafina 1877 #76
Dolce Filomena Serafina 1880 #80
Dolce Francesca 1883 #48
Dolce Francesca 1884 #122

In the second image, the Dolce births are near the bottom of the left column. (I believe these are from film #1692753, and the FHL catalogue listing for the film is incorrect.) I transcribe these as follows:

Dolce Michele 1890 #89
Dolce Anna Rosa 1893 #93
Dolce Rocco 1894 #11 Part 2 (Part 2 may have births in the U.S. reported in Accettura.)

I don't have any images of these particular records, so you will have to identify which microfilms you need from the FHL catalogue and either order the microfilms and review them at your local Family History Center or see if you can get copies of the record images through FamilySearch Photoduplication Services at this link: https://familysearch.org/learn/wiki/en/Photoduplication_Services(Read the instructions and then click on the green button to fill out the order form.)

Alternatively, you can order copies of the records from the records office (Ufficio Anagrafe) in Accettura by emailing a request in Italian to: [url]sindaco@comune.accettura.mt.it[/url]

The fellow there usually responds within 10 days or so. He will email estratti if that's what you request or will mail photocopies of records.

You will find the list of provincial (Matera) microfilms with BMD records here: https://familysearch.org/search/catalog/612394?availability=Family%20History%20Library
As an example, for the 1890 birth record, you will need this film:

Nati 1888, Stigliano - Tursi Nati 1889 Accettura - Tursi Nati 1890 Accettura - Aliano (Film #1660064 )

If you progress from here to search for earlier records, I may be able to help.

Good luck with your research. Keep us posted!

Lesley

Francesco Dolce, b. 10 August 1884
Serafina Dolce (married Nicola D'Alaimo ?), b. about 1877
Rocco Dolce, b. 15 April, 1888
Michael Dolce, b. ?


As you can see, I didn't find a Francesco listed in 1884, but there was a Francesca. This could be a clerical error. The repeated names may reflect births of related family members such as cousins or the death of a child born earlier and a subsequent child given the same name.

The only Rocco Dolce listed in these Indici Decennali was born in 1894, not 1888.

I have additional information on Dolce family members in Accettura that I can send you. If you are interested, send me a private message with your email address.
