Military Records from Terra Di Lavoro

Postby James Graham » 04 Nov 2016, 14:29

I'd like to obtain my grandfather's military records.
He was born in Esperia in what was Terra Di Lavoro.

Which archive shall I send my request to?
Caserta?

Esperia lost all its civil and parish records in WW2.
Military records for thsoe born after 1878 can be requested from the Archivo di Stato in Frosinone.

Thanks for the replies.

I tried Frosinone but they have nothing pertaining to him.
So I figured since it was Caserta at the time I might try there.
This was for WW1

Are you sure he didn't leave Italy before WW1. If Frosinone doesn't have anything he was probably born before 1877 or didn't serve for some reason.

He left Italy in 1930 and was born in 1900.
We have a half dozen photos while is was in the military and he told us about it.

The Archives searched from 1880 to 1920 (birth year), according to their reply, but no matches.

WW1 would have been over before he was eligble to serve. Do you have his birth record?

Is it a reconstructed one created after WW2?

The date at the top should be after the war. It would be a short version probably signed by the person themselves.

I have the estratto dai registri degli atti di nascita so no date.
And if it were reconstructed, could a family member have done it?
My grandfather was in the USA by the time of WW2.

I'm not sure when Monticelli was incorporated into Esperia.
Now, I believe that it is called Delegazione Monticelli.
Was this office in Monticelli destroyed in the war?
