My cousin is going to Italy in about 2 weeks. She is going to town our ancestors are from. If any of you have advice as to where she should look. I have found where they born and married. She going to try to find Church they went to when they in Italy. Any advice that I can give her.
Thanks for reply. I will have to check telephone book for her. We also wanted the name of the Churches. I have two birth certificates and marriage certificate. The marriage certificate says they married by mayor. Is there a wedding at city hall and then at the Church. They were very religious and I am sure there is Church Wedding.
Any advice how to check more on this information. They were married in March 1889 in Altavilla Silentina . They came to New York in May 1890.
The churches typically hold more information than the government facilities. I'm sure you'll get the bulk of the information you need from the church. I'm glad you've narrowed it down to 3 churches. That will make your search so much easier! Good luck and I hope you have a safe trip abroad!
Since you know the date of the civil marriage request the parish one from the church giving the date of the civil marriage. They were often the same day back then. You would get more genealogical information requesting a photocopy of the civil marriage from the town.
That's great that you have the civil marriage document! That makes things so much easier. I'm sure the churches will have the records of the baptism, etc. I desperately want to go to Italy to trace back my history. I've been saving for awhile now and am almost ready to go. I just need a little more money, and then I'll be able to plan the details like flights and international travel medical insurance.
