Re: Calise and DiMaio families from Ischia

I should add that since I have ancestors born in most of the comunes on the island, I have noticed that when searching the indices for last names like D'Ambra, Di Lustro, Di Maio etc, make sure to look under the "A"s for Ambra, the "L"s for Lustro, and the "M"s for Maio. Said another way, don't be d...

Re: Proietto or Figlio Naturale

Dear suanj & carubia, After reading the very interesting back and forth here on this topic, I am now tempted to add yet another wrinkle....i.e. the case in post-unification Italy, especially in the exclaves of Pontecorvo and Benevento as well as other comuni in the former papal states, a child might...

Re: Silvaggi, Tiberio in Ceccano

Oh my, I'm sorry for the impossibly late reply. All research I've done has shown than in order to serve in the US military at that time (conscripted or voluntary service), a person immediately was made a US citizen, and forfeited any other citizenship. This would hereby break the line of Italian ci...

Re: It has gotten ridiculous

Angel25....it IS ridiculous! I have been helping a friend who is in the same situation as you, and Boston seems impossible. My Dad had his citizenship recognized in Boston in 2012, when Corrao was still the guy making appointments by phone, and back then you could get an appointment in 3-4 months. D...

Re: GF in lista di leva

Thanks very much Marty. I am just looking to see if he is listed there. Do you know if they respond to a request via email, or do I need to send a letter? Any experience with that?

GF in lista di leva

My maternal GF was born in Rome in 1893. Where could I find his entry in the lista di leva? Any short cuts to know about? Thanks.

Re: Italian - French Citizen Born in Algeria

I would write an email to the founder of this site: http://www.procida-family.com/US/index.htm Although most of the members now live in France, their ancestors are Italians who settled in Algeria and Tunisia, before moving to France after the independence of France's north African colonys. This is a...

Re: San Donato, Caserta vs. Val di Comino

This link should explain it for you. http://www.elesh.it/storiacomuni/storia_comune.asp?istat=060062 The comune has been transeferred between different provices over time, as well as having its name slightly changed. For your purposes, the comue was a part of Caserta province from 1882. The comune w...

Re: 1948 case birth certificate vs. baptismal record

You would need to ask someone at the Missouri department
of vital records. Seems worth a try.
