Gasparri, Guerrini

Postby alysania » 07 Sep 2014, 20:54

I've hit a bit of a wall on these folks. I have the following people so far:
Silvio Gasparri - b. 5 Feb 1890 in Montebuono, Grosseto, Toscana
Angelina Gasparri (married a Guerrini) - b. abt 1884 in Montebuono, Grosseto, Toscana

Letters written from Angelina in the 1940s to her niece in Pennsylvania, USA show that she lived in Sorano in Grosseto. It would be neat to link up to any family still living in the region as well.

I'm looking for where I might find the archives to find Silvio and Angelina's birth information in an effort to keep tracing the family line. The archives for Tuscany on Family Search only go up to the 1870s, so I'm not sure if I'm just not finding an online resource or if this is a write-a-letter sort of thing. Any help would be appreciated!

Montebuono is a frazione (suburb)of the comune of Sorano province of Grosseto so the town of Sorano is where the civil records are held.

Thank you so much! I wanted to make sure I wasn't missing something.. I had no problem finding records online for another town in the same area, so it felt like maybe I just wasn't finding where they were located.

I really appreciate this!! Thanks again.

Good luck with Sorano. I have tried off and on for several years and even had a very notable university professor to intercede for me. The office told him they are too busy with the living to worry about the dead. I have not received one thing from them, and I sent letters in Italian with Italian postage. Nothing. Perhaps find someone in the area to walk in for you.

The town doesn't reply because they did not keep civil records prior to 1870. You will need a parish record search to complete your family tree.

Thanks for the responses. Looks like I'm up the creek unless I can manage to go there myself.

For a parish search, where do I start with that? Still pretty new to this stuff.

Also, somewhat related, we have an old photo of Silvio Gasparri (the gent on the far right, seated) in this photo
https://www.flickr.com/photos/alysania/15748178277
But we don't know what the photo was for. In pencil on the back, it looks like it says, "Cl. Camillo" - it was probably taken around 1910-1913 or so in Italy. Silvio Gasparri was in the military from 1910-1913 and we have his discharge certificate, but I'd imagine if this was a military thing, they'd be in uniform. Any ideas?
