I would like to trace back my family tree. My father (Guiseppe Oliveri) and mother (Caterina Oliveri nee Mangiola) migrated to Australia in the 1950's. My father's father was named Natale and my father's mother was Gaetana.

I believe my great grand father's name was Guiseppe after whom my father was named. I am led to understand that the family lived in the Provincia of Reggio Calabria and in the Commune di San Lorenzo.

My grandfather , Natale immigrated to the US in the late 1890's but he and his brother, Vincenzo returned to Italy and my granfather, Natale served in the Italian Army during WW1.

I expect that I would need to access the local civil or church registries to further trace back the Oliveri genealogy beyond my great grandfather, Guiseppe.

Apart from physically attending the relevant registries, is there any other way to find family records.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Welcome to "Gente" ... and Happy New Year!


You may know of this site already, but if not then it is well worth a bit of time browsing and seeing what it does have to offer.

The contents of most National Archives are usually really vast. But each subject is generally covered very well. Learning to navigate them though, is another matter. I often want to use the UK Archives and they are a real pain in the neck to find exactly what I want - even though I KNOW it is there...

>Australian National Archives<

Have a look around at what they have to offer - if you still neeed some help, ideas, or whatever - just yell.... there are plenty of members here who will help you out when/if you get stuck (and even when you don't)!

If you wish to trace your family back further, your best choice is to find a LDS Family History Center and begin ordering microfilms of the civil records of your town. These birth, marriage and death records will allow you to trace your family back well into the 1700's. These records (of course) are written in Italian, but once you know where to find the information you seek and have a few resources at your fingertips, they are usually quite easy to understand and read.
The films the LDS have available for your town are HERE
The center locations where you can order and view these microfilms can be found HERE
Begin with who you know. Find your grandfather's birth act first. On the birth act his parent's names and ages will be listed. From there you can find his siblings birth records and his parent's marriage records which will list their parent's names. Many of us here have done this so if you need help or have questions feel free to ask.
Here is a translation of a basic birth act so you can get an idea of what information can be obtained on them and where to find it.

Let us know if we can help.
