Searching for Great Grandparents siblings

Postby barbfair » 09 Jun 2015, 20:23

I am searching for my great grandfather Giuseppi Corso siblings. I am guessing he was born around 1864. I don't know where in Italy he was born. I found his name in an old document when he lived in Casalbore. He married Anna Patrevita of Rovato. I think he was born somewhere else but migrated to Casalbore. My grandfather, Urbano Corso, came to America with a cousin, Emilio Corso, and both of them were from Casalbore. I located the children of Emilio here in the U.S. but they do not know who Emilio's parents are. Therefore, I believe my great grandfather Giuseppi had at least one brother who would be Emilio's parents. I am assuming there are more siblings. How can I find this information out? Who would I contact? I would appreciate any help. Thank you.

His marriage record should tell you where he was born.

Welcome to IG website Since there are no online records of Casalbore I would try the Family History Library films of Registri dello stato civile di Casalbore (Avellino), 1809-1910 that you can rent copy and view Nati(birth records) 1866-1870, 1872-1910 Pubblicazioni(marriage banns) 1866-1910 film#1801070
I would get Urbano and Emilio birth acts to get parent info (ages maiden names)then look for the parents marriage

In searching Italian civil records you have birth(nati) death(morte) marriage (matrimoni) by year most go from 1866-1910 some towns have other years. Indexes are found at the beginning or end of the year you are searching by index number and surname.There are also multi year indexes which combine 5 or 10 years of indexes
Babies are born then presented to the civil official of the town usually within a few days of birth for entry in the birth registry. If there is a problem and they cant register the birth act until much later they are entered in the Parte 2 for that year usually in the rear of the records and that record is usually handwritten. Sometimes there are sidenotes with marriage or death information or if the act has a mistake in it a correction to those mistakes
Marriage records include birth town, ages, occupations, parents names, if they are deceased
Death records have age parents if they were married and to whom and usually town of birth
Civil records are signed by the civil official and 2 witnesses not usually family members
The indexes for the churches in Italy of baptism and marriage and death are arranged by first name first (later years last name first) by year and date of the act and page and record number. Just find your person in the index and go back to the records to find the act you

* Giuseppe Corso
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

Barb,
As was suggested by Marty if you use the death records you can go back another generation or two.
In fact in my tree of the side of my family from Casalbore I have a Maria Corso Bn. 1750
Died 1810.
