Region of Trentino-South Tyrol

Trentino-Alto Adige/Südtirol (Italian: Trentino-Alto Adige, pronounced [trenˈtiːno ˈalto ˈaːdidʒe]; German: Trentino-Südtirol; Ladin: Trentin-Südtirol) is an autonomous region in Northern Italy. Since the 1970s, most legislative and administrative powers have been transferred to the two self-governing provinces which make up the region: Trentino and South Tyrol.

The region was part of Austria-Hungary and its predecessors, the Austrian Empire and the Holy Roman Empire from the 8th century until its annexation by Italy in 1919. Together with the Austrian state of Tyrol it is represented by the Euroregion Tyrol-South Tyrol-Trentino. With a past of poverty, the region is today among the wealthiest and most developed in both Italy and the whole European Union.

In English, the region is also known as Trentino-South Tyrol or by its Italian name Trentino-Alto Adige.[1]

My name is Germán Bacca, and I'm building from scratch a genealogical tree of Rumo zone, that is the zone where part of my ancestors come from. This tree is based basically in these family names: Bacca, Fanti, Bonan, Wegher, Fighil and Pichler. But, of course, there a lot of other family names from this zone such as Martinelli, Vender, etc. Currently I have around 5600 people on my tree.

And I really need help to get registers of Fighil and Pichler family names, from the town of Proves (Bolzano).

Thank you.
