Re: French DNA in Italy

Yes, of course in the 1800's surnames had already become "stable".
I mean that an ancestor of Chiara (in past centuries) must have been "Marsilio".

Re: Does US Naturalization of Ancestor Disqualify Us?

My father was born in the U.S. before his Sicilian-born father was naturalized as a U.S. citizen. Does that mean I'm eligible for Italian citizenship but I would have to pass an Italian language test? If yes, is it written or oral? Yes, you are eligible. You will have to prove this of course with s...

Re: Death Record For Older Matteo Lo Blundo

I think they are here:

I see the key symbol on all of them, but I tried some, and weren't locked.

Re: Esposito family from Mangone, Cozenza

Civil registrations for Mangone are online at FamilySearch:

https://www.familysearch.org/search/cat ... %20Library

but only viewable at Family History Centers of the Mormon Church.
In Italy, they are now closed because of pandemy.

Re: Death Record For Older Matteo Lo Blundo

I've never seen this kind of records.
However, my guess is:
"fu m(orto) Mattheo Lo Blu(n)do s(enza) c(confessione) ? dedit ? elemosina"
"Matteo Lo Blundo passed away without confession; alms were given"
As to the numbers at the end of line, I wouldn't know.

Re: Girolamo Corrado birth Nocera Inferiore

Also, consider the records from Nocera Corpo. It is commonly said that San Matteo is the current Nocera Inferiore, and Corpo is the current Nocera Superiore. Nevertheless, I found my ancestors' records in both, though they were still living in the same street. I'd say to disregard Materdomini, Pucci...

Re: French DNA in Italy

My DNA came in at 2% French (I'm 1/2 Italian). There is a surname of "Marsili" in my tree which I believe translates to "from Marseilles". My Italian side comes from SE Lazio, SE of Rome... I think it is more likely that one of you ancestors had "Marsilio" as his first...

Re: Matteo Lo Blundo - 1570 Monreale Baptism - DAMAGED

What I read (or I think to read :-) ) is "matteo - Jan(nell)a blundu" If you compare the record with the one above, it seems that there's something more between "f. di" and "matteo"; I think it's "q(uon)dam". That would explain the fact that the child was name...

I read "Junii" but can't see the day of month.
Can't see mother's surname, either.

Can you post a readable record as near to this as you can, so that we can see how it is structured?

Re: Marriage Act Amerigo Bruni and Adele sarri

Hi, Campiglia Marittima is now in the province of Livorno, and never was in the province of Siena. Instead, Campiglia also exists as a hamlet of Colle Val D'Elsa, in the province of Siena (I think that's the village in FamilySearch). Campiglia Marittima doesn't seem to be present in FamilySearch.
