Seeking Info on Struglia in Atina

Postby mendinfences » 26 Mar 2013, 04:13

Ciao, Mi Amici.

I am trying to find history on ANGELO STRUGLIA. I do NOT know his wife's name. The Ship Manifest says it was Paolo Colomba but there is a DD or DO typed in and I do not know what that means. It does say spouse.*

My great-grandfather, Angelo, came over with his daughter, MARIA LORETA STRUGLIA in 1921. Those records say he was 51 (though on another location, it says he was 59). Arrrghhh. She was 18 y/o.

There were two boys who came over before them: PASQUALE, came over in 1923 at age 18 as did his brother Michael (listed as Michele) indicating the same age (which they weren't). They had a brother named Romeo (listed as Rocco on their manifests). I find no record of him coming over before them, though he clearly did. (Well, I suppose they could have made him up but I do have a great-uncle, Romeo, who lived in the location notated.)

Later, another sister came over, listed as Guiseppa. Says her father's name is Angelo and her mother's name is COLUMBIA DI POBLA. (*First listed as Paolo Colomba???)

There was another sister who became a nun. Don't know her name.

I am trying to find ANY records of these relatives in Atina but, especially, my great-grandmother. I have NOTHING on her and certainly nothing conclusive. I am making an assumption that she died since she did not come with them and the rest of the family did but ... who knows. :?

THANK YOU to any of you who have information or who might point me in the direction of other places to look.

Grazie mille.

Hello and welcome to the forum-
There was a Giovanni Di Paolo who came through Ellis Island from Atina in 1920, so perhaps Di Paolo was the correct spelling of her surname. He went to Detroit though, so there is nothing to indicate that he was related to your ancestry. Di Paolo though is a current surname in the town.

Grazie Mille!

I had been thinking of marriage records and such but, you are correct, that it might be easier to go about it with birth records.

I am actually going to be IN Atina in September. Do you think it is easier to get information in person or should I just go ahead with the letter option?

Anche ... grazie!

My advice is to try to gather as much info as you can before arriving in the town. The books with the records are extremely old and may not be well organized. Some towns are reluctant to have them viewed because they fear legal problems. A clerk there may promise to make a copy of a record once found, but may not be able to do so on the spot and may ask you to return another day for the copy. If you are able to return, you may find that the copy was never made. I tell you these things because these happened to a cousin of my husband in their grandparents' ancestral town. Luckily she and I had already researched the towns' records which were on microfilm. This may not be the case in all towns, but you just never know.

You're welcome. Here are two email addresses, in case you want to try these before mailing off a letter to the town.

anagrafe@comune.atina.fr.it

statocivile@comune.atina.fr.it

These are taken from the current website for the town. Here is a mailing address for the Ufficio Anagrafe or Stato Civile which appears on this website, which is different from the one given to you by Marty-

http://www.comune.atina.fr.it/index.php ... id_doc=462

Ufficio Anagrafe/Stato Civile
Piazza Saturno, 1
Atina, Frosinone, 03042
Lazio, Italia

Go to the town office about 10am, (they close to the public at 11am). Giuseppina is very nice but doesn't speak English. The records are upstairs in the boss's office and he doesn't usually make the records available for viewing. Written requests and only if you know the date. They do have a Register of the Population and it is in this book that Giuseppina will look for the family. The priest doesn't permit searches either, although he will look things up if you have dates.
Have a great trip.
