Contacting Churches in Italy

Postby Gviola » 14 Oct 2011, 16:24

I've made several attempts to contact some Parrishes in Castelfranco Veneto about my family history. I've sent emails as well as regular mail, but I never get a response. Is there something else I should be doing or trying. Is it typical for these churches not to respond to genealogical requests.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Gary

It often happens that churches have an e-mail address, but priests don't read it.
have you tried with traditional mailing?

Yes I have. It's been over a month and still no reply. It hasn't been that long so maybe in the next few weeks a response will come.

È falso che i parrocci non leggono le domande perché ci sono parrocci che rispondono (anche via e-mail).
Qual' è la parrocchia ?
S. MARIA DELLA PIEVE ?

Provi a scrivere al vescovo.


It is false that priests do not read requests because there are priests who answer.
Which it is the parish?
S. MARIA DELLA PIEVE ?

Try to write to the bishop.

Yes, the parish I tried was S. MARIA DELLA PIEVE. Some new information has come to light so now I'm also going to try PARROCCHIA DI S.MARIA ASSUNTA E S.LIBERALE. It is possible my family were members of the latter parish.

Veramente non ho detto che i parroci non leggono MAI le domande; ho solo detto che SPESSO mi è capitato che scrivendo ad un indirizzo e-mail trovato sul sito di una Parrocchia, non ho ricevuto risposta. Immagino che questo succeda perchè magari fanno realizzare il sito, ma poi non lo seguono in prima persona.

Allora questa volta siamo d'accordo...


I parroci è come i Comuni alcuni rispondono e altri non rispondono via e-mail. Faccio una precisione per la domanda di Gary anche se non ha avuto una risposta ciò non significa che la parrocchia Santa Maria della Pieve non ha i documenti che Gary cerca.

Sorry, but I don't speak or write Italian so I'm not sure what the above statements are saying. What are these websites and what may I find there?

I sent my requests in both Italian and English. Luckily, I have a friend who was able to translate the letters for me.

Yes. I've gone as far back as possible in the state archives. They have now suggested I search the church archives for information prior to unification.

The links Sibino posted are:

a page of the site of the State Archives, with an inventory of what is kept at the bishop's see of Treviso. At a first glance, they don't seem to have acts of baptisms before XIX century;

the site of the diocese of Treviso;
if you are looking for a particular parish, it brings you to

http://www.webdiocesi.chiesacattolica.i ... gina=11331

where you can find addresses and phone numbers.
