Re: Dr. Robert Bosso

Hello again Suanj, and welcome to the Board Eric! After thinking abit about the Hermann death notice, I checked my Missouri resources and found that Dr. Bosso's obituary was also printed in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch newspaper. I couldn't access the St. Louis Public Library site today(where obits a...

Re: Dr. Robert Bosso

Hi Tessa and Suanj, The newspaper from Hermann caught my eye, since my husband's family settled in this small town in the 1850s. I know the town very, very well! I was surprised to see it pop up on Italian Genealogy since it is a German town through and through! Even to this day :-) Then I became cu...

Re: Earthquake - ItalGen ?

Here from the United States, what we can do is send money, any amount, to the Italian Red Cross at this link: https://www.ammado.com/fundraiser/italy-eq/donate to help with food, medicines, tents, dogs, whatever is needed. I also made a contribution using PayPal directly through a genealogy society:...

Re: Military records, Lista de leva

Thank you for your thoughts, adellagreca. If, as you write, male children when born in a particular comune were entered in records for military planning purposes, then as I pointed out in my post, brothers of the child-in-question should be in the records. They are not, or not all the known brothers...

Re: Help from someone in Italy

Hello Anizio and Ann, When (and if) I have a reply from my previously-hired researcher in Italy, I will let you know what I learn, Anizio. Ann, if you will reread my reply carefully, I believe you might clear your misunderstanding of what I wrote. I do not suggest "asking an ex-pat" to travel to Arc...

Military records, Lista de leva

Let's hope someone reading this can unscramble what is a most curious military record in the Salerno Archives. My great-uncle comes up in the lista de leva records on-line at http://www.archiviodistatosalerno.beniculturali.it/index.php?it/256/ricerca-nelle-liste-di-leva Years ago, I received both hi...

Re: Help from someone in Italy

Hello Anizio, I've been hoping (and asking) to find a qualified, reliable researcher to help with records in Naples I cannot access myself. Thus far, I haven't had replies. However, I did hire an ex-pat in the Potenza province to do the same for me and it was a godsend. You've made me think I'll ask...

Re: Born somewhere in Potenza

Hello Ms Blue, Since you know the State (Potenza) where your 2nd great-grandfather was born, and you believe his birthyear to be around 1860, plus you have his parents' names, I wonder if it would be helpful to request/search for his military registration record in the Archives in the State of Poten...

Re: Naming illegitimate children late 1800's

Hello Ms. Mary, We have an illegitimate birth in our tree, late 1800s in Italy, where a lot of digging in records finally linked the child to the bloodline mother/ancestor. The illegitimate child was given a strange 'name' that wasn't one in the family (and as we later learned was not the name of ou...

Re: birth records in early 1800s

Thanks,Ann,
Wonderful answer that "fits" with my reading and thoughts.
But so good to have additional confirmation from another researcher.

birth records in early 1800s

To Board members: Some of the birth records I have are quite specific in noting the relationship of the parents, where the scribe has recorded: sua legittimo moglie for the child's mother. Other records merely note : moglie for the woman. Some of my found records only name the woman, without any oth...

Re: Italian will

Thank you, Ann. Am I understanding your reply correctly that a notary could be in what I wd call 'private practice,'therefore his name would have to be known? That unlike here in the States, the Will wd not be filed in a Court as a record? Might a notary be part of the comune bureaucracy? Learning s...

Italian will

Hello Board Members, Nice to be back after a much-needed break! Is it possible to obtain a copy of a Will executed following the 1938 death of an Italian citizen in Italy? This is not an inquiry in order to establish succession or inheritance or claim to property. My Aunt would love to be able to re...
