Cassiadoro from Belmonte Calabro, Italy

Postby MaryP » 24 Feb 2007, 19:02

My grandfather is Roberto Cassiadoro. A name given to him because he was an orphan. He was raised by the De Luca Family in Belmonte Calabro. His birthdate is October 1894. Should I try to find the biological parents of Roberto? Would there be any records that would show a birth mother or father? Would there be any records of how much the De Luca family was paid to take him into their family? Any suggestions would be helpful.

sure the De Luca family had the little payment for the child expenses... very little payment, but normally this people raising the orphans or foundlings( if your ancestor was orphan he must to have the father surname..) they was very poor people....I believe that is very difficult to find the biological parents, but you can descover something by LDS microfilm, searching the birthact of your ancestor.... this is the microfilm abt the births from 1866 until 1895:

Nati 1866-1895 FHL INTL Film 1961218 Items 2 - 3
only by original document in this microfilm you can descover some very little trace, otherwise it is impossible.. regards, suanj

Thank you for your replies. I did request the LDS microfilm but it hasn't come in yet. I have some cousins that live close to Belmonte, so I will ask them to go and search for some records. They will have better luck since they speak Italian and they are from that area. Thanks again.

Thank you SusanJ. Maybe I'll wait for the LDS and look myself. I'm new at genealogy but I'm having fun researching and then asking my mother about things that I find. In my original post I said that my grandfather was an orphan but I should of said that he was illegitimate. This is the story that the family knows. My grandfather, Roberto's mother was young and working for a Don (Mafia type) as housekeeper. She became pregnant by this man, she was unmarried and he probably was married. She had the baby and gave it up. My mother said that the De Luca Family never adopted Roberto. They just raised him but he kept this name that the government gave him. So Cassiadoro is not the father's name. It's the name that the government gave him. Does Italy keep any records about him?
Thanks for helping.
