20th century newspaper obituaries

Post by bmparent » 10 Oct 2016, 03:34

Hi All,
What's out there for possibilities, regarding searching Italian newspapers for obituaries after the years 1928. (That's when the records run out for the area that I'm researching. (Nocciano, Pescara, Abruzzo).
I'm looking for death info for some relatives who passed away in Italy, and can't find their records in the usual places I look. (Ancestors Portal).
Thanks for any input!
~Brian

Hi Brian, I live quite close to Nocciano...it's a lovely area of Abruzzo, wine country! You can write to the comune direct for any documents that you are looking for. The comune will have the records right up to present day. Obituaries are not published in newspapers here in Italy instead they are pasted on the walls of the towns, about the size of a small poster, for everyone to read. Good luck with your search!

Great site but only has recent deaths and not for all regions. I couldn't find anything for Frosinone. Abruzzo and Toscana were there but I don't think all Funeral services are participating yet.
