Mayor of Castelcivita, Salerno, Campania

Anyone have any info on Giovambattista Soldani who was appointed Mayor of Castelcivita in 1863. I believe he may be my great great grandfather. Would appreciate anything.

Thank you,
soldi

Hello Soldi,

Have you found other records......birth, marriage, death, parents, sibs? Did he come to America? To? What are you searching for?

My family with the same name comes from this comune . Have you written the comune? Or the Archives in Salerno? Do you have a document regarding the appointment of Mayor?

I do not have any other records for Giovambattista. He did not come to America. I do have a document appointing him Mayor back in 1863. That document was given to me by my cousin Alfonso Soldani, who lives in Salerno. I am hoping that Giovambattista is my great great grandfather. My records only go back to my great grandfather named Alfonso (not the Alfonso in Salerno).

Elmosgirl, what is your surname and where do you live?

Yes "Pippo", Those documents are related to my family. I already have them. Thank you very much for providing them. Amleto Soldani is the brother of my grandfather, Ercole. They both came to America. Ercole to Boston and Amleto to New York. Amleto eventually settled in Somerville, Massachusetts.

Thanks again,
soldi

That was just to be sure it was your family :-)
So, these are their records from enrollment lists (with some transcription error):

Nome: Ercole
Classe: 1887
Comune di nascita: Castelcivita
Full text: Saldani Ercole di Alfonso e Gaudiosi Giulia nato il 17/8/1887 a Castelcivita di professione manca

Nome: Amleto
Classe: 1888
Comune di nascita: Castelcivita
Full text: Soldani Amleto di Alfonso e Giardini Giulia nato il 03/09/1888 a Castelcivita di professione

You might write to the Commune of Castelcivita to request their "estratto integrale dell'atto di nascita". In it, you should find the age of their father Alfonso at birth (or even, if you are lucky, who Alfonso's father was), and so, his approximate birth year.
With that info, you could go further back requesting Alfonso's birth record to the Archivio di Stato di Salerno (National Archives).

Thank you "Pippo",

Great information. I am visiting Italy this month and hope to take a day trip to Castelcivita. Perhaps I can find some more information regarding Alfonso's parents.
