Tesio's from Pollenzo, Italy

Postby Vivian » 19 Mar 2008, 03:25

Success after several years, lots of great help from members of this board (Trish, Valarie/VJ, Nuccia, Suanj and others), and orders for many different types of documents (from New York City). I've finally found the name of my great great grandmother (Giovanna Tesio) and just received a copy of her death certificate. I couldn't be happier, and to my surprise it shows her parents names and all three were born in Pollenzo, Italy. I've been researching for years hoping for just one document indicating a town, rather than just Italy. Can someone tell me if there is microfilm for Pollenzo, Italy? If not does anyone know where I could write for birth and possibly marriage records? Again, thanks in advance for your help. Vivian :D

The correct comune would be Pollenza

Pollenza, province: Macerata - region: Marche

LDS films for Civil records 1866-1929

Find a Family History Center (FHC) near you and go in to order the films you'd like to view. Cost is approximately $5.50 USD per film and takes about 4 weeks to receive.

For records prior to 1866 you can use this form letter that will generate the correct mailing address after you fill in all the blanks.

Hope this helps.
