San Mauro Forte, Matera

Postby JamesBianco » 03 Aug 2005, 00:21

Hello all, I am looking for a researcher to find 2 church marriage records from San Mauro Forte, Matera, Italy

Andrea GINOSA to Francesca di NUZZI
about 1750-1760 San Mauro Forte

and

Alessandro TROILO and Margherita PRIVINGANO.
about 1760-1770 San Mauro Forte

I would of course pay the travel expense, hourly rate, etc. I realize church's can be difficult, but isn't it worth a try at least?

Thanks so much!

Jim

Hi: you can see the San mauro Forte microfilm in mormons center, because are from 1810 to 1929:
Registri dello stato civile, 1810-1929 San Mauro Forte (Matera). Ufficio dello stato civile

http://www.familysearch.org/Eng/Library ... o+civile++

The Caresimo surname most probable is an mistaken version of Carissimo/ Carissimi surname; nobody Caresimo currently in San Mauro Forte, only the Giammetta people:

hoping helpful, regards, suanj

Hi,
As Suanj stated the images can not be seen on-line. What you are seeing is actually an on-line catalogue of the available records. Here is a post written by Trish that explains in detail how to use the microfilm:

Here is a link to find a FHL near you:

Also, you may want to check with a library near you. In the USA, some libraries also can order films for you.

Jim,

I know you posted this a long time ago....but this link may help you. A priest (no less) who has the Trolio surname (yours is spelt Troilo, but I'm assuming it is the same) working at a church in the diocese of Tricarico which is the next village to San Mauro Forte.

Maybe a letter to him??

Good luck.

Michael

Look up 'PARROCCHIA SAN GIOVANNI BATTISTA' in Calciano if the direct link fails.

Thanks a lot for that link! :)

I just wish someone would do something with San Mauro Forte (like work on the church records) It gets so frustrating since I have right here at home the church records for my nona's town in sicily back to 1527! But I guess the priests in Sicily are friendlier.
