Italian search for ancestors from Italy

Postby Blue6310 » 09 Nov 2011, 18:14

I am new to this site, so I'll put all the names and places I am trying to connect with.
The Gaetano Polidori family in Castro dei Volsci, Italy
The Anna Migliori family in Castro dei Volsci, Italy
The Michele DiLuca family in Castelpizzuto, Italy
The Elizabetta Sigismondi family in Carimanico, Italy
The Angelo Cerrone family from Carimanico, Italy

These are all my great grandparents and were born around the 1850's.

If you are a member of any of these families, please respond and we'll see if we are related. I live in Texas in the USA. Or if you have any suggestions as to how I can go about finding information about their parents and siblings, please help!

Thank you!
C Olson

You should be able to search the films for Caramanico (note spelling) and Castelpizzuto however for 1850 in Castro dei Volsci you will need a parish record search as this town was part of the Papal states and did not begin civil records until 1870. Still, a search of the films between 1870 and 1898 MAY produce a death record.
