Relatives in Pergola, Italy

Postby dmueller74 » 31 Oct 2014, 01:05

Hi,
I've been trying since 1995 to find my relatives in Pergola, Italy. I know that the last name was Branchini and that they went to Catholic Church of Francesco; however, try as I may results elude me. My Great, Grandmother's maiden name was Velelma Branchini her father's name was Nazzareno Branchini and her mother's name was Anna Antinori Branchini. Her siblings were: Albert, Binigno, Victor and Annette. Does anyone know how I might get a hold of their records?

There are two places of origin with the PERGOLA name. One is a "frazione" or absorbed surburb of another town called marisco nuovo in the province of Potenza (Basilicata region) and the other and the other is a town in its own right in the Province of Pesaro-Urbino (marche region). Can you help us identify the town of origin for your family? In the interim seek out the book Italian Genealogical records by Trafford R. Cole which is an easy read and will help you know what you will need to become aware of your family tree as it were. There is no charge for requesting documents which you may wish and we will furnish you with obtaining the form letters in Italian (www.circolocalabrese.org (selecting genealogy) by just knowing complete names and date or year of birth or approximate year give or take 5 years or so. There is a family certificate which might be available in the place of origin that contains the names of the parents and all their children in addition to birth, marriage or death records. Peter

He's looking for people IN Pergola, not WITH the name Pergola.
TIP: When asking for records from Italy, do NOT ask for an "estratto." ALWAYS ask for a "copia integrale." A photocopy of the original Act will contain more information

Two places of origin has everything to do with places of birth and nothing to do with names! Peter

Do you have any dates? Without them I cannot offer any advice at all.

Pesaro e Urbino is a difficult province to search in although the Comunes are usually very helpful. I have had a lot of luck with them going above and beyond to help me.
