1925 - Italy, Frosinone, Sant'Elia Fiumerapido

+1 vote

I just discovered The Portale Antenati in Kitty's Library.

A search by name returned nothing interesting; so I thought I would try browsing the original records.

I'm helping a friend with ancestors from Sant'Elia Fiumerapido. Wikipedia says this town is in Frosinone; but this page has no link for Frosinone.

After some additional searching; I found something under "Archivio di Stato di Caserta":

  • Sant'Elia (oggi Sant'Elia Fiumerapido)(provincia di Frosinone)  › 1809-1861
  • Sant'Elia Fiumerapido(provincia di Frosinone)  › 1863-1865

Is there a page to watch for future updates with more recent scans?

Ciao a tutti (hello to all),  Frosinone is both a city and an area.  The province is situated below Rome and is a very large and ranges from the coast to the foothills of the Apinnine.  It is one of the most beautiful area and is called by some as the heart of Italy.  The phrase Provinicia di Frosinone translates to "province of Frosinone", if you saw the word Citta' that would indicate the city.  

My relatives live in the area of the Appennini foothills.

You mentioned the records of the site www.antenati.san.beniculturali.it   This site translatable to English contains records that were digitized as part of project that the Italian government sponsored.  Records available are good in some areas, you just have to try you luck.  You are able to download source BMD (birth/marriage/death) images free of cost.

The antenati-website is a bit complicated. You first have to know the capital town of the provincia, in your case this would be Caserta. Then the time period you are looking for (Stato civile napoleonico, Stato civile della restaurazione, Stato civile italiano), then the town, birth / marriage / death records and then the year.

The records are digitised by the microfilms of the mormons. So it depends, what they have microfilmed many years ago, and it also depends on when this exact town started to record the civil registry office. Some towns started in 1809 (this is the earliest year I found), some started much later. Also not all towns go up to the same year, but mostly they are around 1900.

As much as I know, the project didn't finish yet, so if you don't find the town or the year you are looking for, just try again in some months or even years.
The publication program is from 2018 tought. I tried Verona and it looks complete.

Hope this helps.
