Hello, I am attempting to learn more about my great-grandmother's history in Italy. She immigrated to the USA in 1889 when she was 12 years old. Her name at that time was Maria D'Alto, and her mother was Congetta Colombo. Her father was Antonio D'Alto, but I believe he passed away before Maria immigrated to the USA. I believe they used to live in Teggiano, Salero Province, Italy.
I would like to see how far back I can trace their heritage, but I do not know how to search such old Italian records. Where should I start? Any help is appreciated.
Your best bet is the to rent and view the Family History Library films of Registri dello stato civile di Teggiano (Salerno), 1866-1910 with the film of Nati 1866-1883 Family History Library International Film #2016214 for her birth record with some of her siblings possibly. You can get the parents info (ages) then you can get try for their marriage record with their parents info
