Re: Proper formatting of location names (pre-unification of Italy)

Grazie Pippo!

Any idea how locations once part of the Papal States may be formatted? Only one town that I research, Pontecorvo, was part of the Papal States, and is was an exclave in the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies, so I am especially confused how to properly and accurately format the name.

Proper formatting of location names (pre-unification of Italy)

Hello, I am wondering how to correctly format location names of comuni during pre-unification periods such as the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies/Kingdom of Naples. For instance, the town of Prata Sannita would be formatted today as Prata Sannita, Caserta (province), Campania (region), Italy. Would the ...

Re: Vairano Patenora - Guglielmo Babelli (orphan)

I have looked through the birth records of Vairano Patenora and neighboring towns from 1900-1910 and was unable to find any birth records for Guglielmo Babelli. I even tried searching for Guglielmo Esposito on the off chance that he was given the last name Babelli upon adoption. The last name Babell...

Poland - Lawrence Dejon/Deion and Marianna Stanoszek

Hello, I am seeking information on Lawrence Deion/Dejon (1863) and his wife Maria/Marianna Stanoszek (1866). They may have come from either Sanniki or Czyzew in Masovian Voivodeship. In 1903, Lawrence immigrated to the United States with two of his children, Victoria (1888) and Henry (1889), and set...

Re: Latin records of Sortino

I was able to find a vast majority of ancestors on the Muzzicato and Rio lines on my own in the past few weeks, bringing me to the 1550s. I've had a major difficulty in trying to understand the last name of one of the ancestors I've found. It is the marriage record of Pasquale Virdiano in 1602. I am...

Latin marriage records of Canicattini Bagni

Hello. I was recently sent images of several church marriage records from Canicattini Bagni. The records are in Latin, and some are rather sloppily written. Due to my minimal understanding of Latin, here's all that I was able to understand: Record 1 (http://imgh.us/15252703_10208367067677876_4760452...

Ciriaco Manzolillo in the Catasto Onciario

I recently received photocopies of my ancestor Ciriaco Manzolillo's family in the Catasto Onciario of Panni. I was wondering if anyone could help me understand what is being said on the second page, since I'm new to looking at the Catasto Onciario. http://imgh.us/pagina_97.jpg http://imgh.us/pagina_...

Re: Catasto Onciario

I was able to acquire a transcript of the Catasto Onciario of Itri. I'm currently trying to piece together what fits with my family. I came across a strangely worded section for a household that may have been an ancestor of mine: Il bovaro Biagio Mancino di 31 anni abita in casa propria a Centanova ...

Re: Online indexes for civil/parish records

I'm specifically looking for online indexes such as the one I provided the link for, with a focus on the 1700s. I know it is highly unlikely that there exist such indexes online for the cities I listed, but I just wanted some input.

Online indexes for civil/parish records

Hello all, Recently, I came across an index of birth and baptism records from San Potito Sannitico spanning the years 1700-1900, which was compiled by two genealogists (http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~gensoup/sanpotito/index.html). As it is very fortunate and useful that such a res...

Recording previous names of cities/provinces

Hello all, I recently realized that for quite some time, I have still been using the modern names of cities and provinces in my family tree for some locations whose names have changed over time. This has been a bit problematic, as I am currently working in the 1700s, but most of my data is recorded ...
