Cemetaries of Novara?

Postby nimue28no » 21 Sep 2010, 12:49

I am trying to find the location of a grave belonging to Stephan Bibrowski. He died in 1930 and was buried on a cemetary in Novara.

Can anyone help me with names of cemetaries in this region? Also if anyone know if there are some kind of registers to search im. I am afraid I can not speak Italian, so every thing I have tried have so far failed...

I would be very greatful for any help, tip or suggestion on how to find the information I am after.

Sincerely,
Ann Nimue

Ann,

This thread http://italiangenealogy.tardio.com/Foru ... bones.html along with a few others discusses the cemetary situation in Italy. A couple of important points:

a) The Italian word for cemetery is Cimitero

b) Cemeteries (Cimiteri) are owned and operated by the comune. Hence, in this case, see http://www.comune.novara.it/servizi/cim ... mitero.php (a rough English translation of the same page: http://translate.google.com/translate?u ... so-8859-15 )

c) Italy has limited space for burials; remains are typically removed from graves after some number of years and placed in a comunal ossuary, then the original gravesite is prepared for re-use.

Thank you so much! I can not believe how fast it went from me asking to someone replying here - much appreciated.

I have written the office and asked, so crossing my fingers that I will hear from them.
