Re: Conetta/Gentile

That's right, the town has the missing books but they are in storage and most don't have indexes. If you don't have a date they won't do research. For example, there are no civil records prior to 1809 so you won't find the birth records you are looking for. They probably married around 1825 and Sett...

Re: Assistance with search (LaRosa & Baglione)

Most Sicilian records have been digitized. Have you checked www.antenati.it? or www.familysearch.org?

Re: Conetta/Gentile

Settefrati is unfortunately difficult to trace your family tree as all the parish records prior to 1900 were destroyed in a fire. The town has the books missing from the Family search microfilms but won't search them. There is only one church and cemetery. You might wan to read about planning a visi...

Re: Recently Discovered Italian Ancestry!

A lot of Italians from the south went to Germany to work. I can imagine that a woman who got pregnant might not want to take her baby home and would have it adopted. You will need to work through the adoption agencies for this one I think.

Re: 10 Year Index doesn't match to Record

Always remember the creating of a 10 year index (without a computer) involves, taking each single year index which may or may not be in alphabetical order, and merging it with 9 other years. The margin for error is great. If you know the year of death, forget the 10 year index in this case and go st...

Re: Desperate help. Where is UBA?

It looks like UBA to me. Added on arrival so has nothing to do with place of birth. Without the first half its hard to say. Were they children under 16 travelling alone? Write to Comune di Montegallo for the birth record if that is where he was born.

Re: Seriani's from Castagna Provincia di Catanzaro - Help please to fill in some blanks

You need to write to the towns and request their records of birth. There are form letters on line.
You might also try www.familysearch.org to see if they have any records, or www.antenati.it

Re: George Valenti of Carpinone

You definitely need to communicate in Italian. There are lots of examples of form letters on line.
Write to the town and ask for copies of their birth records.
