I'm looking for information on Bartomeo-3. I have an Ancestry account and plan to drag over the information I can get from the US records soon enough, but I don't have any access (to the best of my knowledge) to anything from Italy.

 

My father said his brother said that their father (my grandfather) was part of the Italian military, too. He was born somewhere called "Montesano" and supposedly he lived in southern Italy before he came to the US, first with his first wife Maria Picone, then with his second wife (Maria) Antonia/Antonetta Pugliese.

Thank you for the new resource with some from-Italy information!
my pleasure!

you could now order his birth certificate, but to be sure you should look for any info (on death / marriage certificate) about his parents.

There is a free site, familysearch.org , that you could access from Italy. Just go to their site and get a password.

While vacationing in Italy a few years ago I saw sites in several cities including Florence and Rome.
Familysearch.org might have info and records  from Italy for you as well. I have found hundreds of people from Alia, Sicilia this way. Try searching with the name of your town and the country Italy. Auguri!
