Birth and Marriage records

Postby ccam » 13 Jul 2009, 12:05

I'm trying to obtain my great grandparents' marriage and birth certificates for citizenship. The naturalization papers indicate they were born in San Lorenzo Palermo. Do I write to the Palermo Comune for the records or somewhere else?

The location is a peripheral part of Palermo that is San Lorenzo Colli,located on the road to Palermo proper Via Giuseppe Mazzini I believe.

In any event, the address to send your request for documents is to the Ufficio di Stato Civile, Viale Lazio #119, stanza 11, 90100, Palermo, Sicily, Italy

Send form letter in Italian for documents fromthe following:
www.angelfire.com/ok3/pearlsofwisdom/it ... tters.html

The service is free of charge so just send a self addressed return envelope if you wish. =Peter=

Hi,
depending on date of birth and marriage
is better send a mail directly to :

Ufficio di stato Civile
Piazza Giulio Cesare, 52
90127 Palermo (PA)
Italy


because there the civil records starts from 1820 to today.
Research of certificate will be "manual" and is the only one in palermo where this research is possible. Other office dislocated in Palermo are subsidiary and they done a request to above office for ancient records. Other office works with actuall records.
I hope it help.

Vincenzo

Other family related : Jacobucci or Jacopucci (from Central Italy).

I am searching for Bonacci Family from San Mango D'Aquino, Italy. My father Mario F. Bonacci was born there and his mother was Angela Puteri and father Victorio Bonacci. I would like to find out who their parents were? Where can I go to find them and other family members? Also how can I search for names in Cemetaries in San Mango?

Thanks,
Mary Bonacci-Sanchez

Go towww.nonsolocap.it/calabria/46-San Mango-d-aquino for the web page of the town and send form letters in Italian to the Ufficio di Stato Civile using the address of the MUNICIPIO. To the right is the www tourist info for website (translatable into english by google..I have that capacity).

For form letters toi obtain documents go to the following:
www.angelfire.com/ok3/pearlsofwisdom/it ... tters.html

To find current relatives try telephone directory for town by going to www.paginebianche.it and put in Bonacci in fiurst line and town name in second line and click CERCA for 3 potential relatives currently living there. www.angelfire.com/ok3/pearlsofwisdom/sa ... etter.html for letter tio potential relatives. =Peter=

I received my great grandparents' marriage certificate from Italy. However, my request was stamped that they had no record of a birth certificate for my great grandfather. He was born in San Lorenzo Palermo. Is there another location or comune that I can request records? Also, if I wanted to located his baptismal certificate, do I need the name of the Church or is there a main Church where records are kept?

San Lorenzo Colli is located on the Palermo City outskirts and falls under that jurisdiction of Palermo for civil records. There are 126 churches in palermo and you may wish to see if there are any churches associated with San Lorenzo or San Lorenzo Colli by going to www.parrocchie.it and putting in palermo on the right side. =Peter=

Dear CCAM Marcello certainly came to your rescue and made the whole process faster for you. Marcello is an expert for this area of Italy. Just a word of caution about parish priests in Italy. The parish priest has complete control over his church and it used to be advised by the Mormon church 5-7 years ago that a donation of $15.00 would be appropriate to offer as a donation to cover the costs of doing a search for the records you are seeking. Since that time the dollar has declined and I suspect that a donation of $25.00 may be its rough equivalent to offer as a donation.

For your further information should it needs be that you may wish to communicate with the Palermo archdiocese for whatever reason the e-mail address for their historic archives department is archivistorico@diocesipa.it =Peter=
