Dear Mr. Laratta

My name is James Klos and I am a descendant of Giuseppe Guarascio. My Great Grandfather was born in San Giovanni in Fiore, Calabria on May 23, 1904. His parents are Tommaso Guarascio and Anna Maria Secreti. They also had a son named Salvatore Guarascio that was born in 1901. My Ancestors came to America in 1913. The attached document is my Great Grandfathers birth certificate from San Giovanni in Fiore. I found your postal address on the http://www.emigrati.it/ website online. I am gladly and willing to pay for all of the research that you can help me out with. The following is some of the documents that I am trying to get a hold of…….

Giuseppe Guarascio’s baptismal record

Tommaso Guarascio’s birth record. He was born 10 April 1873.

Anna Maria Secreti’s birth record. I believe she was born in 1880.

The stato di famiglia originario certificate for my Guarascio family.

Marriage record for Tommaso Guarascio and Anna Maria Secreti. Marriage date is not known.

This information is needed for a family tree I am trying to put together for my family. I am currently going through the process of obtaining Italian Dual Citizenship. Sometime in the near future I am planning a trip to visit San Giovanni in Fiore. I have sent off about ten letters to various households that held the last name Guarascio in San Giovanni in Fiore hoping to find some family that remained in Italy that are related to my Great Grandfather.

I know I am asking a lot but I am willing to pay for the research. If you have access to the internet, you may contact me at jjk_16_21@hotmail.com or via postal mail. Please let me know the cost for what you can research. Thank you for your time and God Bless!

Sincerely,
James Klos

Hi,

Can't translate the letter, but I'm sure someone will, but do you know that you can get these records from the LDS Church (Mormons) films of the civil registries (birth, marriage & death acts) of San Giovanni in Fiore?

Here are the available films.

1810-1910

Yea but the thing is. He is willing to also retrace your family backwards and find other family members that are linked. He is only doing it for Italians that lived in San Giovanni in Fiore and emmigrated to other countries. I actually just ordered a copy of the births microfilms yesterday.

http://www.emigrati.it/Inglese/Research.asp on this link you will see that there is a link for people who are researching for geneology information on their families that left San Giovanni in fiore.

Well, I just wanted to tell you about the films......you can also find & connect other family members through these films & by doing the research yourself, you know that you're getting the correct information.......but it is up to you.

Good luck in your research.

Gent.mo Sig. Laratta
mi chiamo James Klos e sono un discendente di Giuseppe Guarascio. Il mio bisnonno nacque a San Giovanni in Fiore, Calabria, il 23 Maggio 1904. I suoi genitori erano Tommaso Guarascio e Anna Maria Secreti. Ebbero anche un figlio di nome Salvatore Guarascio che nacque nel 1901. I miei antenati vennero in America nel 1913. Il documento allegato e' il certificato di nascita del mio bisnonno di San Giovanni in Fiore. Ho trovato Il suo indirizzo sul sito www.immigrati.it/
Sarei disposto a pagare le ricerche che possano aiutarmi.
Sto cercando di avere i seguenti documenti:

certificato di battesimo di Giuseppe Guarascio
atto di nascita di Tommaso Guarascio, nato il 10 aprile 1873
atto di nascita di Anna Maria Secreti, credo sia nata nel 1880
stato di famiglia originale Fam. Guarascio
certificato di matrimonio Tommaso Guarascio - Anna Maria Secreti, non conosco la data.

Le informazioni richieste servono per ricostruire il mio albero genealogico.
Sto cercando di ottenere anche la doppia cittadinanza e sto pianificando una mia visita a San Giovanni in Fiore.
Ho spedito circa 10 lettere a vari cittadini di San Giovanni in Fiore che hanno il mio stesso cognome sperando che qualche famiglia che rimase allora in Italia sia correlata al mio bisnonno.
So di chiedere molto ma ho intenzione di pagare per questa ricerca.
Puo' contattarmi all'indirizzo e-mail jjk_16_21@hotmail.com se Lei ha accesso ad internet o tramite indirizzo postale.
La prego di farmi sapere il costo delle ricerche.
Grazie in anticipo.

Cordiali saluti
James Klos
