looking for ancestors of De Braco Luigi (Lecce), and Giuri

Postby cecilia13 » 06 Apr 2006, 09:50

Hello ! I am looking for ancestors of De Braco Luigi and Giuri Annunciata, my grand-parents, probably from Lecce (which is my father's place of birth). I was born in New Caledonia (Pacific Ocean) and I live in Tahiti, French Polynesia now. I am trying to know more about my family history, can anyone help ? thanks

Hi, also you can write to De Braco living in Lecce province
and to ask if they have some relationship with your ancestor... if you can give us some other detail is better... you find the ship's manifest of your ancestors? they came by Australia or New Zealand? you know the birthyears? regards, suanj

Dear Suanj
Thank you for advice, I will do so
I have no further details yet and I am new to the internet so it is a little bit difficult but I think it is possible. My father went to New Caledonia, near Australia, I don't know the year. Ciao

Dear jcsm400
Thank you for the information about Lecce. You gave me so many links I don't know which one to take. :P
May be I should try to find my father's birth records first to see if there is his father and mother's birth date written on it ?
I don't know, or do I have to look at all the lists because I don't know the birth date ? (my father birthdate is January, 5, 1929). Where should I start my search ? Warm thanks (I hope this is correct, english is not my mothertogue!) :P

Hi Cecilia,
Since you father wasn't born until 1929, the LDS films wil not help you til you learn his parents' names. You will have to write the comune for his birth act. Request an extract not a birth certificate. Extract will provide more information. Write the letter in Italian and provide a self addressed return envelope, a copy of your photo ID & an international reply coupon (obtain from your loccal post office). Suanj provided the address above.

Here is a link to a form letter.
http://www.circolocalabrese.org/resourc ... /index.asp

Or you can composed your own an post it here for translation by a native Italian.

What lanuage do you speak? You did great with English.!

Hope this helps.

Jcsm400,

In looking over your reply about obtaining information from Italy you make mention of sending a photo ID??

Is this just to prove your identity or prove your related to the person you are requesting the search for??

My question is I guess, married woman will not have the same surname and if you are looking for maternal family will not have also.

Sorry if this sounds stupid, but I want to send for information and this wasn't mentioned anywhere else but by you.

Thanks for you help!

Ally

Ally,

It's been mentioned in many replies, by many people. I got the information at this forum.
If I'm not mistaken, it's an Italian law that more & more civil employees are following. I don't think it matters about paternal or maternal requests, it shows them that you are who you say you are!
Maybe one of our Italians can answer you better. If no other posting here, try new post "PHOTO ID"

Ally, it has only recentlly been mentioned by our Italian posters, I am not sure if this is a new law, you would have to ask that of them.
In the past it was not neccesary to send photo id.
