church/birth records for Gioacchino Romano abt. 1855 in Alia, Italy?

Post by jenny1945U » 11 Jun 2015, 17:32

I just found a 1907 manifest with Gioacchino Romano's name b. abt. 1855, and it listed Alia as birthplace. He married a Luigia Casale.

How do I find church/baptismal/marriage records from that area? I am very new to this so hope I am following proper guidelines.

Alia is in Sicily; I'm pretty sure your family came from Cervinara per the above.

Since Gioacchino was already in the US before Luigia and children's arrival in 1898, this might be his ship manifest from 1897. Line 883. Click to enlarge.
