Civil records for Forli/Cesena

Postby jkingb » 27 Feb 2014, 19:36

Does anybody know whether civil records for this region exist? Nothing appears in the LDS catalog, but I am not sure what exactly that means (whether LDS simply does not have the films, or whether civil records don't exist at all for Cesena).. I am looking for some records from the 1860's, a good period in terms of LDS films.. Thanks in advance for any advice!

Suanj-

Thank you for the links. They may be helpful in the future! Too bad there is nothing for Cesena itself.. I suppose those records don't exist.

This is very interesting and I thank you again! I would not have known how to find that website. Do you happen to know where I would send a written request for a record from this collection? I tried figuring this out via the link, but I can't seem to.. Also, would you know whether the situation might be similar for records from Sogliano (same period)?

There is some confusion over someone in my tree - not clear whether he was born in Cesena or Sogliano (1856/7). I always assumed Cesena, but somebody found a military record for me with the same name (birthplace listed as Sogliano). I am trying to determine whether this is the same person, or two different people who share the same name and birth year. If I can get the marriage record, or even a birth record stating Cesena I will be able to solve the mystery.

the records are no on line... you can ask ( in italian language) a photocopy of your ancestor birth act (the archivist no make the genealogic research, but by a request of photocopy, he will search; the photocopy must be payed + postage), providing full name, birth year and possible birth place (Sogliano or Cesena); for to determine the right person you must know almost the name of his father or his mother..

Thank you again. I appreciate all of your advice. I don't know the names of the parents. I only know the name of the wife and kids. I tried sending a written request already to both comunes -Cesena and Forli, but for some reason they directed me to the archives in Bologna. Bologna had a military record with the correct name and birth year, but birth place (Sogliano) was different than expected (Cesena). So, that is the long story.. It sounds like I had the wrong archives. Does anybody know (because I don't want to keep bothering suanj) which archives would hold birth and marriage records for Cesena and Sogliano?

jkingb if you can say more abt your ancestors, maybe I can have a better idea.. I assume that this your topic is abt your ancestor
http://www.italiangenealogy.com/forum/l ... 19#p200119
the Italy, before of union, consisted in small states having own story .. so Forlì-Cesena area ... for they adviced you of to write in Bologna archive... now if you can explain better maybe I can give you a better advice ...
