Seeking birth/marriage records Giuliana, Sicily

Post by meovino »

(Record #48)
Seen here is the marriage between Giuseppe Di Leonardo and Antonina Mazzaforte in Giuliana, Sicily on September 29, 1878. Giuseppe's parents are listed as Carlo and Bartolomea Tortomasi. While I've found the marriage of Antonina's parents, I've had no such luck finding Giuseppe's birth record and more importantly Giuseppe's parents marriage record. I have also searched through Giuliana's church records here and have had no luck either:

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The record you posted is the Publication of Marriage - not the Marriage act.

The marriage would have taken place sometime after the last posting on 10 October.

As to Giuseppe's birth act. That would be found in Chiusa Sclafani. It is noted at the bottom of the pubblicazioni where the official noted the record he received from that Comune for the groom. :-)

It looks like you will need to visit your local Family History Center or affiliated Library to access these digital records.

Got it, thanks!
I’m assuming the birth/marriage records of Giuseppe’s parents would be there as well?

Assume nothing. :D

The birth place of Giuseppe's parents MAY be on his birth act if you are lucky.

Haha, you’re right, thank you!
Would you mind sharing the pubblicazioni document where the official noted the record he received from that Comune for Giuseppe?

You posted that document above in your original post :-)

At the bottom of the pubblicazioni that you posted it reads:

I documenti sono: le copie degli atti di nascita degli sposi, rilasciato dall ufficio le dello Stato Civile di Chiusa Sclafani quella del lo sposo in data del ventisei Settembre corrente...

The birth act of the groom was received from the registration office in Chiusa Sclafani on 26 September.

The civil records are held at the local level... so yes, that is where he was born, and where the record was held.
