Fiume (now Rijeka)

Postby ericad » 03 Feb 2008, 06:20

My grandparents were born in Fiume (now Rijeka in modern day Croatia) and I'm currently trying to track down their birth certificates.

Does anyone have any experience locating documents from regions no longer part of Italy?

Hi ericad and welcome to the forum. What year were your grandparents born?

LDS does have films but it depends on the year of birth.

Regards,

Elizabeth

Dear Ericad You may wish to send an e-mail to rjerin@yahoo.com who is a croation specialist I happen to know and ask him for his assistance. It is a quick question and I am sure he will respond quickly. =Peter=

The films go to 1912 and another set to 1918, I'm sorry. Maybe one of the genealogists on the site can tell you where you need to write to in order to obtain the records. Be patient and I'm sure one of them will answer you soon.

Best luck in your search.

Regards,
Elizabeth
