I am looking for info about my Gmothers family DiCicco from StElia. I visited 2 years ago with no success.
She lived and died in England.

Hi Lockmaster and welcome to the forum. I recognize you from the Laurentini posts. Glad to see you're starting a search.

LDS has films for St. Elia - Civil records 1809 through 1899 for births, deaths, marriages etc. Here is the link...............
http://www.familysearch.org/eng/Library ... o+civile++

Find your nearest Family History Center (FHC), I'm providing the link......
http://www.familysearch.org/eng/Library ... et_fhc.asp

Write down the film numbers you'd like to view and go to your FHC to order for viewing. Takes about 4 weeks to receive.

If you have any questions don't hesitate to ask. Again, glad to see your post.

Regards,
Elizabeth

Sant'Elia records were destroyed during WW2. It is true that the LDS microfilmed records but they are complete only from 1809 to 1865. Records fro 1866 forward were destroyed and only reconstructed records exist. This means that if your ancestor was not in Italy after WW2 you will need to go to the church for information. In Sant'Elia most of the church records did survive.

So the years of 1809 through 1899 for civil records of birth, death , marriage etc. that LDS lists that they have films for is incorrect?

Not exactly, they are incomplete for the years 1866 to 1899. They have microfilmed whatever records were on file with the State Archives but for these years they were only reconstructed records. This means that the people living in Sant'Elia after WW2 went to the town and re registered themselves with whatever documents they had on hand. They had to sign that the information they were giving was correct. If it had to be verified they would have checked with the church records. People who were dead or who had emigrated did not register themselves for obvious reasons.
In Italy, when you are born you do not receive a copy of the document to use for the future. When you need to prove your birthdate, for school or marriage etc, you go to City Hall and they give you an 'extract' that contains just the information you need. It might not state your parents names for instance or their ages. This extract is valid for 6 months only.

I have been doing research on SantElia Fiumerapido (there are two Sant'Elia's in the Frosinone area) in my research I have come across quite a few DiCicco's
I also have a number of films on extended loan from the LDS If you could give some more information e.g. Christian names and dates etc I may be able to give you some help.

Thanks to everyone for contributing.
I have been waitng a few days before responding because I have been concentrating on my new relative found through this site (Laurentini family). We are meeting within the next 14 days and I am very excited about what will happen.
I will contact Emmy to give her names and approximate dates of my family from StElia and hope for similar results.
Brilliant site.......congrats to organisers.

Hi Lockmaster
I found the following in my records at home but they are not the dates you are looking for, I'll check the other dates out when I can. but these ones could perhaps be related to some of your ancestors.
BIRTHS:

Index number 44 Giuseppe DiCicco born 16th March 1853
Father- Angelantonio
Mother - Caterina Soave

Index number 109 Giuseppe DiCicco born 9th September 1853
Father - Benedetto
Mother - Carolina Bastianelli

Index number 18 Benedetta Di Cicco born 16th February 1850
Father - Francesco
Mother- Angela Soave

Death
Index number 180 Antonia DiCicco
died 12th December 1861 age 46 years.

If Dicicco was your Gmother's maiden name then your G Grandfather's surname would be DiCicco too Do you have any clue to what your
G Grandmother's maiden name was?
(Just a note - Woman in Italy kept their maiden name after they were married and its their maiden name thats used on most certificates referring to them.)Will keep in touch

Thanks Elizabeth
(I'm beginning to feel I could manage to drive now but I cant until I smile sweetly at the Doctor and get him to say OK :lol: )but once I'm able to drive again I'll be able to check the other films at the FHC. and hopefully get some more information on the DiCicco's
