yes he is my great grandfather(pietro) he was born in Italy and came to america in 1914. he passed away in 1970. I know he had 2 brothers paul Ciaffoni and Louis Chaffon( he changed his spelling when he came to america) and two sisters Pedina and Lucy Ciaffoni. I am interested in finding out about my great great grandparents from Italy. All I know about them is what i wrote before. My grand father never met them and does not know much about them.

The Lds has microfilmed your town of origin, you are very fortunate to have this resource.
Suanj provided you with the microfilm and where to write directly for certificates...........
request must be made in Italian, if you need to, you can use one of the form letters at the following link.

Your very welcome.......civil records only go back so far, then you would need to consult parish records. Suanj could give more detailed info on this than I.......if you need any clarification then post, and one of the helpful persons on this forum will reply.

Another member has written an excellent outline for using microfilm
as written below.

Hi Everyone,

I want to explain the proper way of obtaining microfilm from a Family History Center (aka – Latter Day Saints)

1. You go to www.familysearch.org/E...t_fhlc.asp and click on place search and type in the town you are looking for. Click the word search.

2. A list of the results will show up. (Remember there can be more than one town especial with a Saint’s name – ex: Santa Caterina dello Ionio and Santa Caterina Albanese).

3. Click on the link. A new page will appear where it will state (Name of Town) and Civil Registration.

4. Click on that link and a new page will appear which states “Registri dello stato civile, 1809-1910â€Â

wow! I found this post with a google search. Paul Ciaffoni is my great-grandfather! My mother and grandmother (paul's daughter) are on a similar mission to reconnect with our roots.
