Need help please!!

Postby smazzoni » 07 Mar 2008, 01:46

Hi,

I'm trying to find my great grandfather town. I have some papers and his passport number but I was unable to get a website to check information about his pasport.

Basically, I found a paper of him that says something like this (is reeeally old so I can't read very well):

... che si relasia a Soldato Mazzoni Giuseppe domicilio nal Comune di ***Mondurana*** -this is the place I couldn't found-, Mandamento di Fermo Distretto militare di Ascoli Piceno ... etc

I did a search using Mondurana, Mandurana, etc etc, but nothing... does somenone of you have any idea about this place?

Thanks

Thanks for you answer Biff,

I thought the same in the beginning, but I've called this comune and they didn't know anything about my great grandpa. I even was once in the Ascoli Piceno (I'm from Argentina), because at firts I thought that he cames from that city, but in the civil registry they gave me a list with dozens of little towns (Monte Urano was between those). Unfortunately, is a single word that shows up in the paper, so all "monte" prefix are not valid :(

Do you know if there's a way of look at some personal information of someone in Italy putting their Passport number?

Thanks!!

Good news, I've found a copy of his passport. I show you a scan (file is attached. I see that it says "nato a:" but I dont understand the place, it looks confusing. Province is clearly Ascoli Piceno. Can you understand it?

I can also say that Biff was right, in his passport, i'm almost sure that it says "residente a: Monte Urano". It's funny because in the other paper I told you it shows clearly "Mandurana". It's bad written and you were right!

I will also try to search for his born date, because isn't clear in the passport copy. Unfortunately I dont have the original ones.

Thanks sooooo much!!
