Find my father's birthplace

Postby 05231949ALD » 15 Apr 2014, 21:41

My father was born in the province of Teramo, possibly in Pescara or Ripa but definitely in Abruzzo in 1898. He came to USA around 1920. How can I find information about his birthplace in Italy?

His name was Adamo DiGiuseppe. He was born in November, 1898 either on the 14th or the 11th. I believe he came to the US in 1920 or around then. At the time he was born, he was from Teramo province although that province was probably changed in geography when the new province of Pescara was created. He used to talk about Pescara and Ripa and I think he used to send packages back to family to an address in Ripa de Civitella del Tronto. Any help you can provide would be appreciated. Thanks so much; let me know if you need more info.

Hi, Ripe is a hamlet of Civitella del tronto.. but by ship's manifest seeming that he was born in Teramo.. maybe a error.. however the better way is to search in Civitella del Tronto civil records microfilms by LSD
Registri dello stato civile di Civitella del Tronto (Teramo), 1809-1910
https://familysearch.org/search/catalog ... %20Library
and if you will find the birth act ( so you can know the right birth date and parent's names) you can request the birth certificate in Civitella del Tronto writing to:

Ufficio di Stato Civile
Corso Mazzini, 34
64010 Civitella Del Tronto (TE)
Italy
best regards,
