Adoption records

Postby amelia » 15 Apr 2014, 12:41

I would like to know whether it is possible to find the real parents of my father.
He was adopted in 1928, a few months after he was born. Perhaps in Palermo.
My father did want to find his parents but when he went to the courts at the age of 18, he was too afraid and declined to know who they were at that time.
Many years ago he asked me to find out. I went to the records dept in Palermo but they would not tell me.
Is it possible to find the real names of his parents and what is the best way?
I know the surname left by his birth mother.
He was adopted in Palermo but has a medallion that appears to read RIETI. Does this mean he was initially in Rieti, the small town?

You would have to get his birth act what is his name? It would have his mothers name on it if your info is correct or if he was a foundling it would be very tough.The towns of Rieti and Palermo are about 1000 kilometers away

Thank you for your reply.
The surname given was "Pucci" . The certificate is difficult to read but it appears that it was in !939 that he went to court where he was officially given the surname he has now.
Do you think it would it be possible to get a copy of the original court documents. If so how would i go about it?

The little medallion had the inscription - Cappella della Maddalena , Fonte colombo - Rieti.
I am very curious because of the long distance, how she came about having it??
He also was given a medallion with Palermo and a number . I am assuming it was his number given at the orphanage.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you again for responding.
