1890 Muro Lucano records

Post by spike3333 » 04 May 2016, 18:33

My Great Grandfather and Great Grandmother, Antonio Spinaponte and Luisa Genuario, were married in Muro Lucano in 1890 and then immigrated to the US. Because they had both been married before and their spouses had died, they had to provide birth certicates for themselves and marriage and death records for their 1st spouses. Luisa was from Muro Lucano and I have been able to trace her line using LDS on-line records. Antonio was not and the marriage record I have says his parents names were not known. This record was on LDS and also states that his birth records were submitted but they aren't on-line. I believe they are in the Allegati records of 1890, which aren't on-line. Does anyone have a suggestion about how I could obtain this birth record. Are these records in Muro Lucano or Potenza? Any further assistance would be very appreciated.

Antonio's birth record will not provide details of his natural parents. You might try looking for his first marriage record. It may provide his place of birth but for sure his ship manifest or naturalization papers will give his place of birth.
