Looking for the correct parish

Postby cj457pm » 11 Sep 2015, 21:25

I started my genealogical search by contacting the commune of San Bartolomeo in Galdo. They were helpful in finding some information, but were restricted to birth records from 1875 forward and marriage records from 1900 forward. They recommended contacting the State Archives of Benevento for more help prior to those dates. Benevento was somewhat helpful, but didn't seem to have the records that match up with the great-great grandparents that I'm trying to find or didn't want to search without more specific dates.

1. Antonio Maria Catullo - found out his birth date (1865) and parents' names, so I think I'm on my way.
2. Maria Michela Saturnino - this is his wife. On the birth certificate for their son (in 1893), it lists everyone's ages except for hers. Benevento wasn't willing to search without a birth year, but I have no idea how to find any further information.

3. Pasquale Iannelli - found out his birth date (1878) and parents' names, so I think I'm on my way here too.
4. Maria Assunta Pacifico - this is his wife. Again, her age is not listed on their daughter's birth certificate ( in 1894), so I have no idea.
Both of these people were deceased by the time their daughter was married in 1915.

Benevento suggested trying to contact the parish where my ancestors were married. What can I do to figure out which parish to contact? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!!

At any rate it is worth a try!

Ask Benevento to search for the marriages in the 3 year prior to the birth's of their children. If not found repeat the request for the next 3 year period.
