Battipaglia

Postby dmt1955 » 15 Feb 2014, 00:56

I am assisting friends in their search for ancestors, who are from Battipaglia & Eboli, in Salerno province.

Familysearch.org does not have microfilms for either town or are either listed in the Salerno films.

I am wondering if either town was renamed as many others were in the country.

Thanks,
Donna

This is really not going to help you, but I found that Battipaglia became an autonomous town by Royal Decree on March 28, 1928 from parts of the towns of Eboli and Montecorvino Rovella. No microfilm for the latter either, I'm sorry to say.
