Castel Del Monte, L'Aquila

Postby dbotig » 27 Dec 2015, 23:18

My ancestors come from Castel Del Monte in L'Aquila. Does anyone know where I can find information about this commune? I would be interested in any old maps, pictures, facts, etc. When you aren't familiar with the geography, Google is NOT your friend. :)

Also, where can I find out about cemeteries in that area during the 1800's. Obviously they were buried somewhere, but I can't find the names of any old cemeteries.

Thanks!

This is from Wikipedia:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Castel_del_Monte,_Abruzzo

and this is the Commune site:
http://www.comune.casteldelmonte.aq.it/hh/index.php

I'd also try ebay, where you can find postcards such these:

Search "castel del monte" Aquila (though I see a lot of Castel del Monte, Bari come out)

In the Napoleonic Era (early 1800s), one of the reforms made in the areas the French troops conquered (which includes most of Italy) was to require each town to relocate its cemetery to outside the populated area. This was for health reasons.
