Giuseppe Benincasa Mangone Calabria

Postby patbenincasa » 04 May 2016, 01:58

I am looking for birth certificate for my grandfather Giuseppe Benincasa. he was from a little village in Calabria, outside Cosenza called "Mangone." How do i go about locating his birth certificate? I believe that the church in Mangone had a fire which destroyed records.
Thank you

Thanks, Marty!
I hope this is the correct Giuseppe Benincasa...

I tried logging onto the Cosenza Archives, but it was down when I tried.
Glad you were able to retrieve the record. :-)
