Re: My Italian Father

Without understanding barely one word of Italian, I can feel along with you on your beautiful song.Very well done. So do you have your birth certificate even though you were adopted? Do you know your half brothers or sisters? Do you have any name at all for your father? or not even a first name.I wi...

Re: Italian death certificates regarding cause of death

I appreciate your response Ann. As I have only had about 6 certificates from Italy at this stage. My interest is really an academic or comparative interest, more than anything I have so far found on my Italian certificates. I have a lot of Australian certificates from my mothers side of the family, ...

Re: Help from Scotland for telephone number please

I can conclude my request on my post here with very good news. Patrizia worked on this for me, and confirmed that my cousin in Scotland seemed to be still living in the same area, and then came up with the correct international and local required digits to be added to my cousins phone number,to get ...

Italian death certificates regarding cause of death

I understand that Italian death certificates say 1860s-1920s do not give a cause of death. But say if a death was by suicide, homicide, or accidental are they ever stated as such on an Italian death certificate from that era? Also what happens with a stillborn child.Is it registered as a birth only ...

Re: Slow computer downloading from this site.

Edmondo, I showed your suggestions to my much smarter son with computers than I am. He used the Chrome one as you mentioned, and it is so fast on this site now I barely have time to think! I just wonder with Suanj`s slow problem as well if she has the same problem I have had over the last week or so...

Re: Help from Scotland for telephone number please

Pippo, I have tried the name in now a few times on the link you sent, but it always comes up negative. It is more than likely that my cousin is not on the landline phone system now and maybe on mobile only. I would have thought though that her sons names would have shown up, as I think they are stil...

I am in Australia and I have been unable to contact my Italian cousin living in Scotland.I have a phone number that worked a couple of years back and prior to that, but have had no success with it since then.I am just hopeful that someone in Scotland may have a recent telephone directory next to the...

Re: Photographs

Angie, I am just so happy to hear that good news. Do you think you may also get a photo with your grandmothers certificates as well! Lets hope so. As I stated earlier, my fathers Australian Nat papers had no photo with it, and to make matters worse I think he must have had to hand in his Italian pas...

Re: 1910 Passport Information

I cannot read Italian but found it interesting from the replies that state "sent back due to her poor condition and sick" It bought to mind when my father was booked and due to leave Genoa with his sister in 1927. he was given a final medical by immigration and found to have a hernia. He w...

Re: Photographs

Is the photo under the glass now damaged? I presume you do not live near the gravesite, but I would try and get someone to photograph that picture for you, if of course it is not badly damaged.If the photo was taken by a studio photographer it could have their studio name on the back, and many studi...

Re: Question about when a child died on board...

I agree with Tessa on that.It just looks like the date of death, the 23th etc. The other child that perished on the trip looks like "drowned" and the date, but I am open to correction on that. Falling overboard or what? Makes one shudder reading it. John

Re: help with ship name and town name

Re: Marriage certificate/ birth records

Just a google search tells me of a Saint Pelagia, who can be known as Margarito,Saint Marina or Saint Margaret.The usual date of celebration is 8 October, but it mentions that it can also be 5 May or 23 July , but the 8 October seems to be the main accepted day. Now to go from Pelagia to Margaret,wh...

Re: Marriage certificate/ birth records

John again! I cannot help being interested in what is going on in that census of your family.(I am waiting on a bunch of Italian certificates, and then I will start in earnest on my fathers side of the family, but until then I have a bit of time). I do think now that those kids on the census are all...

Re: Marriage certificate/ birth records

Sorry,in my previous post I did misread that Pauline may have been known as Maggie, but as you said, it was Margie that Pauline may have been known as. I would have thought that Maggie was a better chance to have been known as Margie, than a Pauline to be known as Margie. Hopefully it will work itse...
