Re: Trying to trace my great-grandfather

In the first post above, click on Rosemary1000's username. On Rosemary's profile page, look to the right and you will see info on her posts which total only 5. Click on Search User's Posts to see the threads Rosemary was part of.

Should not be too difficult to locate the thread with the photo.

Re: Vitalchek

I have used them also. Reasonably good service; many state websites actually direct you to VitalChek.

Re: How do you guys find italian immigration records?

I use ancestry.com for most of my research. It is not free, but for one-stop shopping it is hard to beat.

Re: Passport for CIAMPI, Nunziante

Everything I have ever read says that this is impossible.

Re: Passport for CIAMPI, Nunziante

I am going out on a limb here to suggest that you might be able to obtain arrest/court records from the Archivio di Stato di Avellino ( http://www.asavellino.beniculturali.it/index.php/en/ ), however you will need someone with far better Italian than mine to compose an appropriate letter... :) You m...
