certificate di stato di famiglia

Postby Jamiepalma2 » 08 Nov 2016, 23:27

Hi, I read an article that if your family left Italy after 1880 that you may be able to receive a certificate di stato di famiglia. I was wondering what this would be and how do you go about obtaining one?

Also, can people in Italy see my family tree on ancestry.com?

Thanks,

Jamie

I received the Stato di Famiglia for my grandfather by writing to the Ufficio Anagrafe in his Commune. They were great and emailed it to me very quickly. I used this website, and just modified the request as needed:

Also, it included my gf, ggf, ggm, and my grandfather's siblings and their spouses and children's birth and, when necessary, death dates. Tons of info.

Thank you for that information :D

Was it expensive? Also, did it give any details about when they left country?

They did not charge me for the emailed copies. I should also say that I also reached out to the commune that my other gf came from, but received no reply, so I think it varies between municipalities. There was no info there on when he left Italy.

Some towns have the type of record keeping that makes preparing a Stato di Famiglia very easy. Others do not, and given the amount of work involved they simply ignore the request.

If you need information about immigration, there are some anagrafical records that might give you this but you can only get them by going to the town. It wouldn't show up on a Stato di famiglia.
