Where is Elena, Italy located?

Postby mistertellyman » 10 Jul 2012, 06:22

When my father came to the United States as a teenager in 1912, on the ship's manifest, the town in Italy where he was from appears to be written as "Elena". I am wondering if this is the same town that is now called "Gaeta" and if so, how can I obtain his birth certificate and my paternal grandparents marriage certificate?

Any help would be most appreciated.

Elena was an autonomous Commune from 1897 to 1927, when it became again a part of Gaeta.
Address of the Commune of Gaeta:

Piazza XIX Maggio n.10 - 04024 , Gaeta (LT)statocivile@comune.gaeta.lt
Mr. Prats Cosmo Telefono:0771-469239

Grazie, Giuseppe!
I sent a letter last year to Ufficiao Anagrafe in Gaeta and heard nothing back. A few months ago, I sent another letter to Ufficio dello Stato Civile in Gaeta and still have not heard back.

Is there a way to make certain someone reads my letter and responds to me? Or is it better to plan a future trip and go to the Commune in person?

Yes, I had the letter translated into Italian, but heard nothing back. Are you suggesting I send an email to statocivile@comune.gaita.it as well?

I sent an email to statocivile@comune.gaeta.it, but it came back as undeliverable. Did I copy it wrong or is there another email address?

My wife and I went to Rome last year and spent a week in Trastevere and a week on the Amalfi Coast (Praiano). Needless to say, we absolutely fell in love with Italia!! Can't wait to go back again.

G,
I will definitely let you know when we are returning to Italy again. When we were there, I was told there were a lot of "Lauro's" in the Sorrento area, but we did not have the time to search for them.

Several days ago I sent a message to the corrected email address you gave me, but have not heard back from them. Still waiting.

Hopefully I can locate my father's birth certificate and his parent's marriage certificate in order to proceed with Italian citizenship.
