Re: Can my uncle and cousin use my documents?

Thank you all for replying. Jenna, So, does that mean after *I* apply, I can make photocopies of my documents, and my siblings in NC and D.C. can apply using those, even though they're not legal? Why couldn't my uncle apply that way, too? I'd still have to submit all the documents for his family (si...

Can my uncle and cousin use my documents?

Okay, so I'm currently in the process of collecting all the documents I need for dual citizenship - I *hope* to apply by late 2012-early/mid 2013. Now, I have an uncle and a cousin who are interested in getting it, too - they actually bring it up almost everytime I talk to them. *But*, they live in ...

Re: Translating letter to cemetery

@Marty, Thank you so much for the translation! This helps a lot. @Ann, I didn't know that - that stinks! I know Raffaele died *after* the late 70's - is it possible he's still buried there? I have Angela's birth record. It's on Ancestry.com. I can't find Raffaele's because the *only* year that's mis...

Translating letter to cemetery

I've been trying to find out exactly when my great grandfather's youngest brother (Raffaele Maietta) died. I know his birth (or baptism, at least) date and that he was definitely alive in the late 70's (I had an aunt who went to see him in around 1977). He was born 1897, so he most likely died some ...

Re: Very confusing! 2 different birth records for same perso

Yes, I agree with Livio - this is a very likely two different children, one of which died. I actually found three aunts named "Angela" to one set of parents. The first two died in their first year. The father's mother's name was Angela, so obviously he was going to keep naming them that ti...

Re: Help translating this

Well, I called. Unfortunately, I called late - I was NOT connected to an answering machine, but a clerk. When I called, I THOUGHT it was 7 AM their time, but it was actually 8 AM (I moved to Texas from VA, recently, and I always forget I'm in a new time zone). Well, I decided to just READ my message...

Re: Help translating this

Have you tried with ordinary mail? When they receive your letter, they have to protocol it, so, there's an evidence of reception. This way, they have to answer your request (or at least, they should). Yes, I've tried ordinary mail - no reply. Maybe my letters were lost in the mail, or they just did...

Help translating this

Okay, so over the last two years, I've tried everything to get my great grandfather's birth cert - I've mailed the Comune, I've faxed them, I've emailed them - everything. So, today I decided to try the direct way. I called and asked if there was anyone there who spoke English, to which I was met wi...

Rose Fiorelli: 1919 - 2011

Find A Grave Memorial This is my great grandaunt. Although I didn't know her very well, it makes me sad that she died. She was the last of my great grandmother's siblings, and we were all very close to her , in my family. I got the feeling Rosie liked it when we visited - she never married or had k...

Hmm, that would make sense; there's a road in Marcianise called "Via Federico Quercia". I wasn't sure if the name began with a Z, or a Q, or an L.

Do you have any idea why his father would be recorded as Boccagna, while he was a Rossano?

Help with this document

I recently found the death record for my great X5 grandfather, Francesco Rossano. On it, his father is listed as Davide Boccagna . Does anyone know why that would be - why his father would have a different surname from him? Also, I was wondering if anyone could figure out what his mother's name was;...

Re: A couple questions about Italian healthcare

Okay, he's relieved his current issue. This involved him and his friends taking the tooth out themselves and stitching the gum back up :shock:

He's still going to need a long term solution, but he doesn't seem to want anyone's help or input.

Thank you all for your replies!
