Livorno parish records

Post by Ignazio_123 »

Hello there,

Sorry I am new to this page, so I am unsure where to begin. I am trying to find actual birth and marriage records for my Italian side of the family.

Erminia Innocenti (Erminia Degl’ Innocenti) possibly born 25th January 1846 at Livorno, Italy.
(Unsure if Livorno here refers to the city or province)

Looking also for her parents marriage:
Giovanni Innocenti (Giovanni Degl’ Innocenti) and Paola Rebecchi (Paolina Irrebechi)

And also looking if Erminia had an brothers or sisters.

Hope someone is able to help in some way.

Kind regards,
Troy

The link above has a list of parishes in the city of Livorno and in other cities in the province. I think your only option might be to write to these parishes and maybe you'll get lucky. (if you have a facebook acct, you might also see if there is a way to communicate with a parish through that).

There's a sample letter at the website below to help you. Years ago, I wrote to 13 parishes in Benevento for a cousin of mine, and a priest at one of the parishes answered that he had the records. My cousin then wired him a donation, and he sent him copies of the records, along with typed transcriptions of the Italian handwriting, as well as English translations. Just bear in mind though that there is a shortage or priests, and some administer to multiple parishes and may not have the time or personnel to assist you with your research.

I would not initially send a donation.

I checked for births in the month of January from 1844-1848 here: http://dl.antenati.san.beniculturali.it ... di+Livorno

These indices do cover several different parishes but I didn't see the name you are looking for. There were a few degli Innocenti baptisms recorded but not for children born to those parents.

Actually just after posting this I think I found her in the February indices.
http://dl.antenati.san.beniculturali.it ... ewsIndex=0

#308, Erminia Virginia Luisa degli Innocenti born 30 Jan 1846 to parents Geremia degli Innocenti & Paola Rebecchi who belong to the San Ferdinando parish in Livorno. Baptized 5 Feb 1846 in the Cattedrale parish.

Finding her parents' marriage without other info such as their age is going to take a long while. The marriages can be found through that first link if you're feeling ambitious.

Edit 2 - :lol: okay we're getting really lucky tonight.

Married at Santi Pietro e Paolo 31 Mar 1845:
Geremia Innocenti, 29, son of (I think this says N[aturale] of some hospital meaning he is probably a proietto, perhaps someone else can clarify)
Maria Paola Rebecchi, 29, daughter of Angelo Rebecchi & Margherita Catalani
Apricena, Caltanissetta, Grottolella, Mazzarino, Montefredane, Salerno, San Severo, Vasto

The envious is like the cuckoo. Try to appropriate the merits of others. He never starts a difficult search, having no skills, but puts his egg in other's nest.
