Birth Records in Sulmona, L'Aquila

Post by yannucci »

Hello,

I am looking for birth and marriage records for my great grandparents who were allegedly born and married in Sulmona, L'Aquila in Abruzzo, Italy:

Vincenzo Del Signore (born 10 October 1891) and Anna Quattrocchi (born 26 July 1898), married 26 October 1919.

I cannot locate these records in the archives, as records from these dates seem to be missing/have not been indexed. Does anyone know how I would go about obtaining these records?

As a disclaimer: they submitted this information upon their arrival to the United States, so I can't confirm the accuracy of the information. For example, maybe they came from a small town but recorded Sulmona, a more recognizable location. However, I think it's a good place to start!

Thank you in advance for your help!

Kind regards

Thank you, do you know how to do so? Would I write a letter or must I go in person?

I had a friend translate the request into Italian and e-mailed it to statocivileanagrafe@comune.sulmona.aq.it over a year ago, but never received a reply.

There is a post on my website abou why you do not get a response from the Comune you might find helpful.
Sulmona usually responds to requests.

Good morning, this is my first time on the site but I saw your inquiry. Was your great grandfather's name was Luigi?

I am also wondering about this... I emailed statocivileanagrafe@comune.sulmona.aq.it with no response. Have you any luck since your posting?

You don't need apostille on Italian documents for citizenship purposes.
