Naponelli Family-Venice

Post by woodcockvh » 27 Jul 2014, 00:44

I'm searching for my grandfather Eduardo Atillio Naponelli. He was born in Venice in 1862 and I would like to find his birth certificate. And he was deported from the US back to Venice in 1936. Does anyone know where I could find his birth certificate and also if Italy kept records on returning Italian citizens in the 1930s?
Thank you,
V. Woodcock

Hi, I found just the ship's manifest of 1918:

currently in Venezia archive are not the military draft card for men born between 1848 to 1870 so I no found abt your Eduardo..( hoping that the archive update soon) but I found in the database( men born 1871-1875 and 1879-1881 ) just 1 Naponelli maybe related to your Eduardo

Umberto Naponelli brass worker born in Venezia on 23 Feb 1872 son of Giuseppe Naponelli mariner and of Annunziata Lombardo...

the civil records starting around 1871... before of this year just the Church records..
however if the Venezia archive will update the military records... you will find your Eduardo so almost you can know the his birthdate and parent's names...
you also can send your request to Venezia archive ...
best regards,
