Re: Need Ideas of where to look

Anything before 1866 will have to come from parish records I believe.

Archvio di stato often has a list that is searchable but to get copies you have to request them.

Re: Luigi Zambelli born 09 Nov 1861, Napoli

If you are looking to hire a genealogist in Veneto try Gaspare Paoletti. gasppaol@gmail.com He speaks English. If you think Luigi was born in Naples (city) you have to know the 'quartiere' or search each one. They are indexed on the antenati site. You have to follow the trail. If Luigi 'gave' him hi...

Re: Looking for ancester, surname Curtis

You MUST know the town of birth to find records in Italy and in your case you may even need to know which church. Italian records in the south begin around 1809, in the centre around 1870 and someone else needs to tell you for the north. For sure it was in 1866 in most places but many towns passed f...

Re: My latest blog post

Ann I'm surprised to see that you copied and pasted information which I previously researched and shared in another thread on this forum and posted it verbatim on your blog. What you failed to see was that, further down in the same thread, I had corrected the first statement, as passports were NOT ...

Re: Francesco Barile - Real Casa Dell'annunziata

First request his civil marriage record from San Giuseppe di Ottiano which should tell you his age. Once you know that, you can request his file from Santa Annunziata.

For these years you will need to write to the town office of Rocca d'arce for copies of the records.

Re: Missing records? What to do?

I think the record reads 'found dead in the cave.......' He was a sailor and probably known to the two who declared the death, since they knew he was born in Trapani but not the name of his wife. Maybe they had been drinking together?
The age was probably a guess so look in other years than 1833.

Re: Post-1865 Records for Abruzzo, L' Aquila Prov., Sulmona District

Unfortunately the records on this site do not go beyond 1865 so will not be helful.
You will have to contact the town office. As far as I know there are no on line records after 1865

Re: Info on Porto/Empedocle/Girgenti?

If your ancestor was educated (able to read and write) then he may have been an 'anarchist'. Many fled Italy in the early 1900's. His ship manifest of naturalization record should give you his original surname from his passport (see my latest blog post) but he may have purposely changed it after lan...

Re: Birth/Adoption Records for Albino Resili

If he was born in Roccasecca then you will have to write to them for a copy of his original birth registration. From there he was most likely sent to the Brefotrofio of Rome (the birth record will tell you that) and from there fostered to the family in Ciampino. Once you know this you can ask for a ...
