It's changed to Maria, but sometimes Anna. Is this common in official records? Je...

Re: BIRTH 1865

I have found many birth records on www.antenati.sanbenicultural.it

Re: VOLLARO - looking for help

I'm working my way through transcribing 18th century marriage records of a few ancestors. There is a word that I can't seem to understand. It appears on most of the records. After writing that no impediment to the marriage was disclosed, the Archbishop writes, "Ego Infrastus Archip...." I'...

Re: Latin Marriage Record

I have just photographed the document and tried to attach it in a post again, but it did not work. I have sent an e-mail to Italian Genealogy Contact asking why I am not permitted to send attachments with a post.

Working with Laura was enriching and productive. I found her to be professional and hard working. She provided me with information I hadn't been able to find in years of research. She also updated me on her research every step of the way. All in all my experience with Laura has been more than I expe...
