Search In Genova

Postby Darig » 02 Apr 2006, 02:40

Dear All,

I post this message a couple days ago in Italian Genealogy and received few answers maybe because i was in the wrong forum:


I will spend 4 days in Genova (April 2 to April 6) looking for the Birth Certificate, Lista di Leva, Act of Baptism of my Great Grand Father (born on 1844 - 1846) and any other documents, his surname is Gandullia and I been looking for this quite a long time and received a lot of help from the people, now is time to go personally to Genova, but this time spend few days there.

I need all the help possible to know where to go (with addresses) and look for this records ex. Archivo Storico Genova + Address.
Of course if you know any other places apart from the Archivio Storico di Genova & the Archivio di Stato di Genova please advice in order to look in those places also … Maybe the Mormons? I need the addresses to go any ideas of places that may have information?

Please help.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Darig.

Birth act can be found only to Ufficio di Stato Civile (from 1806 to nowadays), Archivio di Stato (from 1806 to 1813) and there might be also FHL microfilm (from 1806 to 1813)
Liste di leva (from 1884 to 1920), and military records (from 1874 to 1909)can be found only to Archivio di Stato
I hope it helps, bye Riccardo

You have to many threads going on the same subject. It's hard to figure out what has been posted and what hasn't.

That said, I checked the Morman records for Genova, Genova, Italy and they begin in 1866, so no help.

Follow Riccardo's advise and good luck with your research.

Hi to all,

Its been a long time, i'm happy to tell you all that i found the documents i was looking for, THANKS TO ALL FOR YOUR HELP FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART!!!! WITHOUT YOUR HELP THIS WILL HAVE BEEN AN IMPOSSIBLE DREAM.

I went to all the places and the last day i went to the Palazzo Ducale and asked for .............. the CENSUS !!!!! they have books and books of CENSUS, they are pretty good with lots of detailes and gives you the city of origin of the person who was censed so if you look for a last name (i found my last name and the city of origin) from there it was very simple i went to the town, the comuna and to the old church and bingo found the records !!!

I think the CENSUS are a really good tool!!

Once again Thanks to all for your help in my quest !!!!

Dear Laura,

Actually in the census was a column with place of origin, meaning if the person was censed in Genova but was originally from other city it will say in there, hope this helps.
