Re: How do you tell a potential relative why you are looking

Livio lives in Italy and knows the people and culture the best. I would ALWAYS trust his opinion. He has never given me anything but great advice. John, I have written many letters to Italy in the past year. I have been very successful with that. I have found that my Italian cousins are very savvy, ...

Re: How Names were "Inventato" (Invented)?

Hey Jen, just my two cents worth..... My great grandfather was given his name by the town secretary when the midwife brought him to be registered. It says right on his birth record that the secretary gave him his name off the top of his head. And the name he gave him does not mean anything or is not...

Dual Citizenship

The only thing that stands between me and my Italian Citizenship is that illusive piece of paper that says my ancestor never naturalized. I have several things, but none that are right. Can anyone who has been through this process tell me exactly what I need? What works, what doesn't, where you got ...

Military records

I wrote to the province of L'Aquila in Abruzzo for my great grandfather's military records. They gave me a negative response but suggested I write to the comune of Gioia dei Marsi where he came from. What would the difference be? If the province doesn't have the record, why would a small town?
