Are you looking for US or Italian records? Can we have a year of birth for Cosmo/Cosimo? A spouses name (maiden if known) and any children's names? Do you know where he resided in the US?

Looking for Italian records or info. As far as I know he never visited the US. I got his name from my great grandfather's (Anthony Enrico, actually Antonio Errico) death certificate. Antonio's mother was listed as Nunziatta Mastadeia. Do not know Cosmo's year of birth, Antonio was born in 1872.

Hi Jcavallo,

Here is some information that may help you with your search.

If you are looking to conduct your research yourself, then the Family History Center does have microfilm for the town of Laurino. The films cost about $5.75 a roll (depending on your location). On the films you can find copies of the birth, marriage, and death records of your ancestors.

Here is the link for the film numbers, however, the films are limited from 1865-1929.

Here is the link to find the nearest Family History Center.

http://www.familysearch.org/Eng/Library ... et_fhc.asp


Since the films are limited, you would then have to write directly to the town of Laurino. Here is the address for the town.

Ufficio Stato Civile
Comune di Laurino
Piazza A. Magliani
84057 Laurino SA
ITALY

Here is a link that will help you translate your letter into Italian for when you request records from Italy, they must be in Italian.

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


Also, when writing to Italy, please include a copy of your photo ID such as a driver's license, and two International Reply Coupons (IRC's).


Here is the official web site for the town.

http://www.comune.laurino.sa.it/

Here is a link for Pagine Bianche which is a telephone directory. You can see if there are still people in the town with your surname.

I hope some of this helps.

Hi Trish, I am currently waiting for a microfilm from Family Search. I did check the pagine bianche, but there were no Erricos listed in Laurino. I have found several Sofias (Antonio's wife was Grazia Sofia). I am planning a trip there for the summer of 2008. Thanks for the info. John
