Frazione etc

Postby scorpione » 06 Jul 2006, 05:40

I was happily searching the LDS Family History as I have done before and looking for info on Formicola (CE) when I got not only Formicola ,but Liberi di Formicola and Schiavi di Formicola as well. I am confused .What are these 2 all about ? Are they frazione of Formicola ? And, what is a frazione anyway?Are there more subdivisions of towns I need to know? I know my Grandfather came from Formicola and I believe the specific sub-division was Funari. I need help! Thanks .

frazione is an hamlet, belonging to the comune.
So if your father was born in an hamlet , his birth record is saved to the civil record office of the comune where it belongs to.
I hope I was clear bye Riccardo

Grazie,Ricbru,

Io ho ragione ritenere che in Liberi di Formicola , Liberi e un frazione?

Guiseppe
Am I correct to assume that in Liberi di Formicola ,Liberi is a hamlet of Formicola?

Hello
Liberi - comune: Liberi - province: Caserta - region: Campania

Formicola - comune: Formicola - province: Caserta - region: Campania

Liberi has one civil record office, and Formicola has another one, since they are both comunes

Comune
Ufficio di Stato Civile
Corso Umberto
CAP 81040
Liberi (CE) Italy

Comune
Ufficio di Stato Civile
Via Morisani, 1
CAP 81040
Formicola (CE)
Italy

This is the distance between Liberi and Formicola, about 7.5 km- almost 5 miles

Also.

Some towns in Central and Southern Italy have areas called contrada, occasionally you will see them referred to as Contrada ...... for example. In Calabria you will sometimes see actuall areas referred to in records as area or aria ..... with corresponding names.
