Obtain excellent source book Italian Genealogical records by Traffoird R. Cole which is an easy read and fully illustrated at your local library or purchase from bookstore. To obtain birth, marriage and death records send e-mail with form letter in Italian(English translation) from http://www.circolocalabrese.org and select genealogy for form letters. Send e-mail to anagrafe@comune.troia.fg.it Documents are normally free of charge. Wait 4-8 weeks and include a self addressed envelope and nothing else. Peter

Unfortunately, as many of us know, the answers you seek are not in Trafford Cole's book. They are among the many microfilmed records for the town. You will need to rent microfilm from a local family history center to get the pre 1866 records, as those years are not currently available online. We don't know when they will be online, although at some point in the future they will appear on the following website, so keep checking it:

http://www.antenati.san.beniculturali.it/

Or you may just get lucky and find someone who has already researched your names in the town who will see your post here and be able to fill in the blanks for you. While requesting records from a town sometimes meets with success, the purpose of the town employees is not to do research for the myriad of people researching their family histories. Many towns, as a result, never reply to emails or letters, as many researchers have already discovered on this forum. If you can narrow an event down within a five year period, you may get lucky, but if not, I wouldn't expect to get a reply.
