Surname Lanzi from Norcia, Perugia Italy

Postby ginac » 29 Dec 2006, 21:39

Does anyone have info on a Cesare Lanzi who married Philomena Mariotti in Norcia? Their son Eugene is my grandfather and I am very interested in Eugene's siblings and ancestors. If you have info for me please post or send an email.
Thanks,
Gina

It is very close. I have Eugene's birth to be 1898 which would be a few years off but mistakes are found everywhere. Eugene came over again in 1922 on the Guiseppe Verdi. I was told recently that his father died and Filomena moved the family back to Italy so it could be.
Thanks for looking it up.

Unfortunately, I didn't find any FHL films for the town of Norcia, so you will have to write to the city hall for birth, marriage & death acts. Here is the contact information.

Ufficio di Stato Civile
Via Fiume, 1
06046 Norcia (PG)
ITALY
Phone Number: (+39) 0743-824911;
Fax: (+39) 0743-824934

Official website for Norcia:

http://www.comune.norcia.pg.it/index.asp

Requests should be in Italian & include a self addressed return envelope, a copy of your photo ID and an international reply coupon (1 per every 2-3 records requested). The IRC can be obtained at your post office & they pay for the return postage.

Here is a form letter that will translate your request into Italian.

http://www.circolocalabrese.org/resourc ... civile.asp

Here is an Italian-English genealogical word list, that will help with translating the records.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for all the help! I do know Eugene had a sister named Armida. You found connections to Virginia! No wonder I can't find census records. I will write the Norcia city hall for more info.
You all have helped tremendously. Thank you very much.
