Guiseppi Velardo was born in 1886 in Casino, Italy, Maryann Capaldi was born in1890 in Bristol, England but her parents were from the Casino area. I was hoping to find records in Italy of his birth.

Before tracing family in Italy, it is strongly recommended that you do research & obtain records of your immigrant ancestor in the country he/she settled in, in this case England. By obtaining English records, you will hopefully learn parents names for GiuseppeVelardo & Maryann Capaldi, which is necessary to make sure you will be tracing the correct families once you start researching in Casino......Due to the Italian naming tradition, there could be more than one Giuseppe Valardo born in 1886 Casino & the same is true for Maryann Capaldi.

Once you have obtained their parents' names (including maiden surname for their mothers), you can request their birth acts & parents' marriage acts from the city hall in Castelsilano (new name for Casino since 1950) Until 1992, the town was in the province of Catanzaro, but is now in the province of Crotone. Here is the address & other contact information.

Ufficio di Stato Civile
Via V. Emanuele
88834 Castelsilano (KR)
ITALY
Phone Number: (+39) 0984-994025; Fax: (+39) 0984-994407
Email: info@comune.castelsilano.kr.it

Requests should be in Italian & include a self addressed return envelope, a copy of your photo ID & 1 or 2 international reply coupons. The IRC can be obtained at your main post office & cover the cost of the return postage.

Here is an interactive form letter to help with your request.

_______________________

After obtaining the birth acts & marriage acts, you can continue tracing the families by ordering/renting the FHL films for this town's civil records.
Here is the list of available films.>

If you have any questions on anything, please just ask.

Hope this helps.

Tojomi

The advice given in preparing your search prior to searching any records in Italy is good.

However please note that your ancestors Capaldi will have definitely come from the Cassino area Frosinone not from Casino which is a totally different place.

Please note the spellings
