As a nation state, Italy has emerged only in 1871. Until then the country was politically divided into a large number of independant cities, provinces and islands. The currently available evidences point out to a dominant Etruscan, Greek and Roman cultural influence on today's Italians.

I was told that an Italian ancester married an English soldier during WWII. I only have the bride's name, age, and small town where she was born. I also have the name of the groom but no other information. The family had moved to Rome by WWII. I have no idea where the couple were married, but will go with the assumption, for now, that they were married in the bride's church, in Rome. Is there a way to find this information? Most of the information I've ever researched has been for the 1800's. I understand that they moved to Manchester, Lancashire, England, but I'd like to see if I can find their marriage first. Any thoughts on where to begin? Thanks, Donnar11
