Welcome to ItalianGenealogy....
In order to provide help, we need a bit more detail. :wink:
Have you located all US records? Have you identified the exact town
of origin? If you are looking to trace ancestry in Italy, all births, marriages and deaths will be in the town of origin.
Can you provide the full name of ancestors in question, date or year of birth, known spouses, children and year of immigration.

I am in Canada and I do have US and Canadian records. It's the Italian ones I'm having difficulty with. I have been to the cemetery in Donnici Cosenza Calabria where my family is from - both Bozzo & Citrigno and as you know, the move the headstones after 50 years, so I have very little information beyond my great grandparents. I do have relatives in Italy that have tried to get records, but have had no luck, I'm not sure how persistent they were or if they were looking in the right places.
I have heard from others on the internet that the name Bozzo originates in Camogli, but I have nothing to link my family to this town. Our family lore is that two Bozzo brothers from the north settled, one in Donnici, the other in San Ippolito.
The Citrigno's there is very little trace of them, which is why I started looking outside of Italy, I assume if they have been in Italy for some time, there would be more of them - perhaps an incorrect assumption, I don't know.
What I know is this;
Bruno Citrigno dob - 5-19-1849
married to
Marianna Bozzo dob - 1855
all died in Donnici

Felipe Bozzo dob - 1845
married to (1874)
Marianna citrigno dob - unknown
all died in Donnici

As you can see I have both names on both sides of the family to make it a little trickier!

Have you consulted microfilmed records, assuming the town of interest has been filmed?

Usually, once civil records have been exhausted, the next step would be parish records.

The town has been filmed:

Microfilm

You may be able to locate marriage or death records, which should list further details to work with.

Outline written by member Trish:

The proper way of obtaining microfilm from a Family History Center
1. You go to www.familysearch.org

2. Click on the tab on the top right called Library

3. Click on the words Family History Library Catalog

4. Click on the words Place Search and type in the town you are looking for. Then click the word search.

5. A list of the results will show up. (an example: Philadelphia, Pennsylvania)

6. Click on the link you are looking for such a Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Vital Records. A new page will appear where it will show all the films for Vital Records

7. Click on the link you want such as Death Registries.

8. Click on View Film Notes and a list of the microfilm numbers will appear.

9. Click at the bottom of the page, For a printable copy, click hereand you will get a form to print out with all the film numbers.

10. Click print.



Ordering Microfilm

1. Now the FHC does not have all the microfilm in their possession.

2. You have to order the microfilm which takes 3-4 weeks for it to arrive.

3. It costs about $5.75 a roll for 30 days of viewing time.

4. If you need to renew the microfilm, it cost about $5.50 for another 60 days.

5. If you need to renew it after the 60 days, it will cost another $5.50 and the films can be kept on an indefinite bases.

6. Microfilm must be viewed at the FHC.

7. Copies are $0.35 a page.
