??? Prata

Postby cargor » 10 Feb 2012, 21:44

I am asking for opinions or ideas. I found a death record on my g-g-g-grandfather in Civitaretenga. His name was Ferdinando Pollastri [Pollastro] and he died in 1858. It stated that he was born in Prata, where his parents lived. It justed stated the village of Prata...nothing else. Can I ASSUME that it is Prata D'Ansidonia since it is fairly close by or is there other possibilities? Thank you.

Civitaretenga is a hamlet of the Comune of Navelli in L'Aguila Province, Abruzzo Region

Here are the possibilities for Prata... :-)

# Prata, comune of Cautano - province: Benevento - region: Campania
# Prata, comune of Lesegno - province: Cuneo - region: Piedmont
# Prata, comune of Massa Marittima - province: Grosseto - region: Tuscany
# Prata, comune of Suvereto - province: Livorno - region: Tuscany
# Prata, comune of Vogogna - province: Verbano-Cusio-Ossola - region: Piedmont
# Prata Camportaccio, comune of Prata Camportaccio - province: Sondrio - region: Lombardy
# Prata d'Ansidonia, comune of Prata d'Ansidonia - province: L'Aquila - region: Abruzzo
# Prata di Pordenone, comune of Prata di Pordenone - province: Pordenone - region: Friuli-Venezia Giulia
# Prata di Principato Ultra, comune of Prata di Principato Ultra - province: Avellino - region: Campania

# Prata Peschiolo, comune of Lucoli - province: L'Aquila - region: Abruzzo

It may well be Prata d'Ansidonia - which is about 13 kilometers away from Civitaretenga...

Tessa,thank you for the list of different Prata's. I can't believe there are so many!!! I have my work cut out for me. I did start going through some of the Familysearch records for Prata D'Ansidonia but unfortunately,many years are missing. Francesco's death record [1858] is a little hard to read but I believe he was 85 years old when he died...so he was probably born circa 1773 in Prata. Thank you again.

If I send for my g-g-g-grandfather's birth record from 1770-1780 in Prata D'Ansidonia, would the best place to start the search be in the town office or the Archives [Naples or elsewhere?] Thanks.

Hi,
you will not find civil records dating so far in the past.
You only should look for Church records (and be so luck to get priest's help).
The only historical parish I could find in Prata d'Ansidonia is San Nicola. I will take a look for the address.

PippoM and Adelfio,
Thank you both for your replies. I will check the church and see what happens. Thank you again and I'll let you know if I hear anything soon.
