Strategy for Reggio Calabria Deaths

Postby sigatti » 19 Apr 2016, 19:56

Hello--
I haven't visited this helpful site for a while. I like the new look!

Last night, I had a major breakthrough, thanks to Antenati's Reggio di Calabria records. For years, I had been searching for information about the death date and location of my husband's great-grandfather, Antonio Gatti. Happy to say, I learned that he had died in Reggio Calabria in 1914. Fortunately, the year's death acts had been indexed.

Now I am searching for death information about his wife Francescantonia Gambaro. Antonio's death record indicated that he was a widower in 1914. She was alive at the 1904 wedding of their son William. But, between 1904 and 1912 (the last year I was able to find a helpful index), the earthquake had occurred. The number of death records is huge, of course. But, I am having a hard time combing through the records to find an index.

Does anyone know of indices to these records--or can anyone suggest a method for combing through copious records without sitting at my computer until August?

Many thanks,
Susan Gatti

Unfortunately, sometimes you just have to go page by page if there is no index.
We do it all the time :shock:

I'll take a look and see if I can locate it.
Can you post the links to the death of Antonio and the marriage of son William?
