Hi there! I've done a bit of research already and have traced my Grandfather's birth (1885), as well as his parents' marriage (1878) to Giovinazzo, a city in the Bari province. The information is all from civil register documents. I will exhaust the source I'm currently using (LDS-borrowed microfilm in San Francisco, CA) when I reach back to ~1809.
Does anyone have ideas about how to locate any birth/death/marriage records prior to 1809? Probably only church info? I plan to travel to the area in 2006, September time frame and would appreciate any advice. Thanks so much!!!
