Need help wi grandfather

Postby crossl » 08 Jan 2007, 03:50

Hello everyone, need some direction where to find my grandfather birth record. He was an abonded child who was raised in Casacalenda, prov. Campobasso, Molise. His name was Filiberto Giovanni Campestri, birth Dec.20, 1884. I have heard that he was actually born in Larino, prov. Campobasso, Molise and that his real father had surname Romano. The surname Campestri is a made up name given to him by the town and not the name of the family that raised him.
Would his birth be recorded in Casacalenda or Larino? Help would be appreciated.

Regards, Frank

I would contact the province archive for the birth act.

Thank you all, so even though he was raised by a family in Casacalenda he would have been registered in Larino? Even being an illigimate child?
