Alanno Paternal Lines Genealogy Question

Postby peonygirl » 24 Jun 2016, 18:19

I am looking for the death act of Silvestro Squarserio, b 1813, in Alanno. There is a whole thread to this in the thread on translations, Alanno Paternal Lines. My quest is to find Silvestro, and his daughter Maria Cristina, b 1851, also in Alanno. I have searched through the marriage act for Maria and found that Silvestro and his wife, Anna Rosaria Odoardi were both deceased at that time, 1879. That leaves a small window of time 1851 – 1879. I’ve searched the 1861 – 1922 Morte for Alanno. I found one death act that almost matches but not quite. The dates are off, and the parental names are not quite right.

The regional map has them in Abruzzo, with a scattering in Piedmont - http://www.gens.info/italia/it/turismo- ... io&x=0&y=0

Can the name be spelled differently? Does it have meaning that can make the spelling change?
What comes next? Is there an online accessibility to church records? Perhaps there is an avenue I have not pursued…..? I am open to suggestions.

Many thanks - Peonygirl

SOmetimes you have to accept that there just isn't a death record. Earthquakes, wars etc, took a toll on life and often bodies were nt found or identified. You need to see if that might have happened in your town.
You also need to see who made the declaration on the act you found. Was it the funeral people (becchino) or a relative? The funeral people may provide information about the parents based on hearsay. Also consider that the marriage record may have recorded 'fu' when the person was still alive. Church records for this area are not available on line.

Italysearcher - thanks for replying. I guess I don't want to give in and accept that the record may not be out there, but you are correct. It may not be available for many reasons. I will switch to other branches of the family ...

Just to set things straight here, I've had another look at the marriage act mentioned here and it is misleading the way it is worded. It reads as though Anna Rosaria had also died, but she hadn't, only Silvestro was deceased. Maria Odoardi was still alive in 1879. She didn't die until 1893:

Hi. Thanks, Marty. After looking thoroughly through Alanno, I realized that Silvestro was born in Turrivalignani. So I have dug into that town, working backwards, 1879 – 1851. There were a few Squarserios, but not Silvestro.

While in Turrivalignani, I did find Raffaele Iezzi there, who died in 1873. He was 4 months old, son of Rocco Iezzi and Maria Nicola d’Angelo. And I noticed that Emidio D'Angelo, another ancestor, was an official. But no Silvestro.

AngelaGrace, yes, I had Anna Rosaria Odoardi death date as 1893. Silvestro's parents, Domenico and Nicola are complete. HIs wife's family is complete. Only he and his daughter, Maria Cristina Squarserio remain to be completed by the death date to "close" that family unit. I'm sure I will find it eventually or just be happy to have his name and birth date and move forward - :) Peonygirl
