Finding parents of Catherine Spina

Postby larryhouse » 20 Apr 2015, 22:35

My grandmother was named Catherine Spina and was born in 1847 in St. Stefano del Sol, Avellino, Italy. She died in 1924 in Italy. She married Angelo Romano who was born 4/10/1857 and died 2/28/1907. They had a daughter Maria Madalaine Romano born 1/15/1882 who emigrated to the USA and arrived in Portchester, New York in 1904.
Any information to verify these things or names of the parents of both Catherine or Angelo would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Hello and welcome, :D

Try this. Send an email to the Provincia di Avellino,
info@provincia.avellino.it

Use this form letter, http://www.circolocalabrese.org/genealo ... ecords.asp and ask them for the birth act for Angelo Romano.

Just do one request at a time. If you are successful, you will learn names of the parents of Angelo. This will allow you to send more requests and hopefully find the information you are looking for.

Hope this helps,
Paul

Personally, I think it would be better to contact the town directly and not the province to try to get the info you need on your ancestors.

http://www.comune.santostefanodelsole.av.it/contact.php

The email address I found on the town's website is for official govt business only and will not work for you.

There are also microfilmed records for the town (not currently online) available for rental and use at a local family history center. Type in the name of the town as Santo Stefano del Sole

One correction to this. Catherine is really my great grandmother. Sorry
