How to Search for Marriage and Death Certificates in Italy

Post by flan8tive » 11 May 2010, 04:21


New member here, great memories of Italy when my wife and travelled there. Can't wait to go back. I am also a big fan of Ducati bikes.

I have recently organized a large box of old family documents and I need to track down the second marriage of my grandfather and the death certificate for his wife. She was from the Turin area, he was a Romanian citizen at the time, and they married about 1937-1939. My grandfather was widowed from this marriage...but he was also trapped behind the Iron Curtain after 1944, and died shortly after gaining his freedom to Germany in 1964.

Where would I start to research a marriage from this period? My grandfather had a German name, and I am told his wife's last name was DeLonghi de la Casa (not easy to do a Google search on that) and she was divorced or widowed and had been married to someone with a title. I do not know when she died, or her birth date, but my grandfather was born in 1901 and she was supposedly a bit older than him.

All I have are a few pictures of her. Thanks for any suggestions.
