Galli, Bruzzone surnames in Varazze near Genoa

Postby gallifam » 01 May 2007, 01:24

I am just starting the search for my husband's family in Italy, and I have hit a roadblock on his maternal side. His great-grandparents were Gerolamo Galli (son of Luigi Galli and Maria Craviotto) and Maria Bruzzone from Varazze, Italy near Genoa. I have a copy of Gerolamo's birth certificate and several postcards addressed to Maria when she was still in Italy and he was in California. My question is this - where do I look for the civil records? On the LDS site there is no listing for Varazze. And yet his birth certificate clearly states that it was created in Varazze (this was a certified copy that he had made just before departing the first time for America in 1906). Anyone know where I look on the LDS Family History Library site? And if anyone out there is researching Galli or Bruzzone from this area, pls let me know. I have a wealth of information about them in the US, but wanted to see if I could go back another generation in Italy.

Thanks very much.

Welcome to ItalianGenealogy.....not all towns of origin have been microfilmed, in which case you would need to send for a request of records.

Click on family history library, then family history library catalog, you have several options listed here to search from, most commonly used is place search.

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

In the meantime, here is detailed info on the town itself, including the city hall, fax number and telephone....

an interactive form letter to request birth, death and marriage......

Thanks to both of you for your quick replies and good advice. The letter generator looks to be very helpful since I know NO Italian. I will give it a try!

Riccardo - are you out there? I already received my first reply from Varazze! (I am sure it is because you wished me good luck...) I received the marriage certificate that I requested. I can't tell how much money to send to pay for this. Here is what the cover letter says:

"OGGETTO: Richiesta documenti di GALLI-BRUZZONE

Allegati N. ...1..

Si trasmette in allegato l'estratto di matrimonio su mod. internazionale dei nominati in oggetto."

Can you help me translate?

Next, I want to request the birth certificate for Maria Bruzzone (the bride) and I also want to request a marriage certificate for the groom's parents. Should I do these as separate requests, one at a time? I don't want to seem rude or annoy the nice people working at the records office there. I also want to convey my thanks for their quick response to my first request.

What is your advice? Thanks for your help.

Sue
