Re: How to find correct comune of birth in Rome?

Since a baptism typically takes place the same day as the birth registration it seems unlikely he was baptized in Frosinone after being born in Rome unless it was a noble family. Both Rome and Frosinone were part of the Papal States so they only have records after 1870. Rome records are on line. Fro...

Re: Pasquarelli and Visca in Priverno (Piperno)

Back to 1871 you can write to the Comune for records before that you will need to access parish records in person.
I have researched there and their records are in pretty good shape.

Re: What happened to: Maria Frangiacomo, son Pasquale Gaetano from Nicastro (Lamezia), Catanzaro?

If she went back and lived there until 1936 (a census year) she should be registered in the town records as a resident.

Re: Hit a giant brick wall

Re: Nardone from Caira or Cassino

All civil records after 1865 from the Cassino area (including Caira) were destroyed in WW2. This includes parish records which were stored for safe-keeping in the abbey of Montecassino.
