Re: Celenza Valfortore / San Marco la Cotolo : Foggia

"it's like their holding our ancestors hostage for a price." :lol: I've only run into a few family connections from C V, so I haven't spent the time to index the records. I was at a FHC to view all the records for that area that are NOT available online and asked them If I could just download the en...

Re: Casalvecchio di Puglia

I haven't had time to review film #001178118 to see if those marriage publications can fill any of the gaps in film #001178117 marriages. This is what I've got to put in my 'book' so far: 1814-15 MARRIAGES No Records-No Indexes 1816 MARRIAGES No Index. Records 1 thru 12 are missing #13 Pietro Antoni...
