Sorrentino - Ventotene

Postby kmorrissey » 13 Apr 2015, 23:16

I would like to further research my Italian lineage, I don’t speak Italian.

So far I have the following information, my G G grandparents were Giuseppe Sorrentino b:1854 and Florence D’Anna b:1862 from Ventotene. They had at least three children born in Ventotene, my G grandmother Carolina b:1870, Grazia b:1878 Carmela b:1884 and possibly Francesco & Brigida.

Would there be any records available online? I am going to Rome in June and will also stay in Ventotene for 3 nights, would I be able to research this there in the Town Hall and would anyone there to assist with translation?

Any suggestions would be very welcome.

Grazie Marty,


I am more confident of Carolina's b:1870 than her parents as Carolina's youngest child was b:1892. I will start my search as you suggest with an email request for Carolina, Grazia and Carmela's births. Do you know how may years either side of the event that they normally search?

I spotted this site with details of the Ventotene city records:-
http://www.maas.ccr.it/ProgettoRinasco/ ... otene.html
Do you know if all these records are held in the Town Hall and be available to search? Would there be an index?

@ Marty,

Do you have any idea how long it might take Maddalena Petrocco in the the Anagrafe office to respond to my email ?

I sent my a letter requesting Carolina's birth record as per your draft on 14th April but there has been no reply, should I have sent a real paper letter by snail mail ?

I was hoping to kick-off my research via internet before my visit to Ventonene in the beginning of June to increase my chances of obtaining the maximum amount of relevant records. Is the Anagrafe office in the Town Hall in Ventotene and do they hold the records there ?

@ Marty,

I sent the second email as you suggested but still no reply. I don't know if it will help me or do more harm but I wrote (using GOOGLE translate) to the Mayor of Ventotene last night to ask for his help.

I mentioned this site to you previously with details of the Ventotene city records:-
http://www.maas.ccr.it/ProgettoRinasco/ ... tml#N10037
If you look at the bottom of - Introduzione tecnica - "Afterwards I reordered by placing documentation on metal shelving well separated and sorted by series, which is located in via Roma." I don't see a via Roma on the Ventotene map, do you think these records might be somewhere else.

Marty, thanks for all your help - KIERAN
