Italian military records search

Postby bmparent » 07 Apr 2016, 02:42

I'm sure this question has been asked here before, but how might I go about searching for an ancestor that fought, as an Italian citizen, in WW1 or WW2. I know I have one ancestor that was in each war. Ancestry.com hasn't turned up any results, I don't know if that's expected or not.

I have some links that may help:

http://www.difesa.it/Il_Ministro/Caduti ... odOro.aspx – Enter a name to find if that person or persons with that last name was killed in a war while serving in the Italian military.

Military Records - You'll have to narrow your research to a specific region http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Regions_of_Italy, then find out if the local "Archivio di Stato" had started a digital project for local soldiers.

Italian prisoners of war buried in foreign cemeteries - http://www.gualdograndeguerra.com/index ... -allestero
