Re: Help determining if 2 people were brothers

Since Italian women retain their birth surname after marriage it is unlikly they didn't know their mother's true surname. Monte San Giovanni Campano was part of Rome and not all of the second copies of documents survived so were not digitized by Family Search but the town has them. Abballe is a surn...

Re: archivicomunali.lazio.beniculturali.it website?

There are no records or links on this site. It is simply an inventory of the records held in the town offices. Family Search has digitized records held at the State Archives and Tribunals (not all) and in a very few cases also at the local town offices. Monte San Giovanni is not one of them so you a...

Re: Does contadino imply illiterate unable to read & write

Re: trying to confirm ggggparents

Inheriting a piece of land or house would be a good reason to move. Land records are available but not digitized you would have to do this personally probably in Santa Maria Capua Vetere for the years you need.

Re: Access Mendicino records from home?

Unless you are a member of the Mormon Church you will probably have to wait until the records are uploaded to the antenati website. There is a post on my website that explains how to determine when that will be.
