Research in Filettino, Frosinone

Postby JIMMYSAL » 30 Aug 2007, 04:39

I am trying to locate information on the small
town of Filettino, Frosinone. My Great-Grandfather
was born there in 1889. I was hoping films were
available from LDS, but nothing is showing up.
Does anyone know if Filettino was part of another
province or region at that time? Maybe even a frazione
of a nearby comune. I have'nt been able to find much
of anything about Filettino. I definitely hit a road block
and praying someone has some knowledge about Filettino.

:D Thank You :D

Most of the civil records of Lazio...of which Frosinone is a Province...are not on microfilm. That is why you cannot find the comune at the FHL site.

As Suanj pointed out, Filettino definately is a comune.

1809 to 1865 civil records are filmed for most of the area that was in the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies prior to Unification. Other parts have been filmed, but in areas like Lazio...the region you are dealing with...most comunes not been placed on microfilm available through the Family History Library. The listing of available films is sporadic at best for towns within that region.

Afraid you will just have to contact the comune directly.

Hi JimmySal, Long time no see!!

http://www.comuni-italiani.it/060/034/

Per the website above, the comune is very small with only about 550 residents so the Stato Civile office probably doesn't get a lot of requests for documents which might work in your favor. On the official website which Laura posted previously under the UFFICI tab, you will find a link to email the Anagrafe/Stato Civile Official Teresa Pietrobono directly. The page also includes address particulars if you decide to write for information. Here's a link to an interactive letter you can use to request documents. Let us know if you need a hand.

Best,
Biff

Hi: My sister and I were in Filettino with our husbands in October, 2007. We were there earlier in August 2007 for the same purpose to visit the comune office and get info on our maternal grandfather, Pasquale Borelli, son of Ippolito Borelli and Anna Bombardieri. Again we failed to get into the comune office for reasons I won't go into. Pasquale or Patsy, my namesake, left Filettino as a boy of 18 to come to America where he settled in Potter County, Pa to work on the legendary logging railroad,the Buffalo and Susquehanna.
However, we were told earlier that records before 1900 were destroyed in a fire. (Patsy was born in 1892 and came to U.S. in 1910.) We visited the cemetery in Filettino this time and discovered one Bombardieri but no Borelli. While in Fiuggi, the spa town, near Filettino I managed to acquire a 2000-2001 phone book for the province of Frosinone with a number of Borelli listings in nearby towns. I intend to contact them. A writer with several books to my credit, I've s written one book on family, "Growing Up Italian in God's Country," I am now attempting to record our travails on the ancestral trail--many of which are humorous.

I will be happy to check aforementioned phone book if anyone has a name they want to search for.

Filettino was part of the Papal States and did not keep civil records until after 1870. If the civil records prior to 1900 were destroyed in a fire then the church is your only option for genealogical research.
