Re: Need help translation Marriage Record Palermo

Hi,

You will need to upload your document to a image sharing site such as Photobucket or imageshack so someone can view it. Documents attached to posts do not come through.

Re: Advice on searching micofilm records

AND...I would strongly suggest you follow Peter's recommendation of the Lynn Nelson book. That really helps you get a handle on just what you're looking at.

Re: Advice on searching micofilm records

Hi Frank, I've found that some (not all) comunes have an index list at the end of each year of birth records (nati). I've found that looking to the index list first speeds things up a bit. You find the number of the birth record there and it makes it quicker to go back and find that record. I didn't...

Re: Help needed with translation (Italian Birth Certificate)

Hi Livio,

"Michele Facione figlio di fu Fortunato di anni trentadue"

Should the father's age be 32, not 33? Just wanted to mention this in case the poster wants to go further back to find father's birth record.

Re: Annotation on a birth record from Como

Looks like a correction to what was written - "was born a baby of female sex" and should be "was born a baby of male sex." Seems someone wrote the wrong sex for the baby born on 11 February 1934.

Someone will be sure to check this again and offer a full translation.

Re: Document from Racamulto, Sicily

Typo - the administrator's last name is Bartolotta, and of course, "to his wofe" should read "to his wife".

Sorry

How do you open a .ged file?

I have downloaded a .ged file but find that I can't open it. Is there freeware out there that I can download to help me open the file?
Any suggestions would be appreciated. :)

Re: Family History Library

You can use the link that Peter has provided to search the catalog from home. Under "search records" you can choose to search by place, name, etc. Write down the film numbers so that when you go to your FHC you just have to type them in.

And the book Peter suggested...INVALUABLE!!!!

Re: Family History Library

At the FHC in my area you must order the microfilms online, but this must be done at the FHC. The link for ordering is only available at the center on their computer. They notify you when the films come in, usually 3-4 weeks.

Re: Location within Cosenza

There is a Castrovillari (dould it have been written "C.villari"?) about 35 km north of Malvito.

Don't know if that will help...
