How do I apply for historic death certificate?

Postby donnalea » 21 Dec 2014, 15:39

Hi there - I'm new to Italian genealogy. I'm wanting to search for a death certificate of my son's great-grandfather. He died about 1935 in Pavia. We have his surname but that it all. Is there an equivalent to BDM for Italy?
Thanks very much for any advice,
Donna,

Welcome to IG website
Can you give a name and date of birth perhaps his death info is a sidenote on his birth record

His surname was Cassinelli, he was probably born around 1900 (give or take 10 years) in Italy. I know he died in Pavia (drowned in the Ticino River) in the mid 1930's. Thank you for your interest and reply - much appreciated.

Pavia is both a town and province (Like a county with many towns in it)
I looked in the birth indexes of the town of Pavia 1896-1904 only saw a Luigi Cassinelli born 1903
Do you have his parents name or names of his brothers and sisters?

Hi Marty, Thanks for that. I am in Australia - how do I search the local records? Do you have a link?
Thanks so much again.
