I would like to know if there are any of my family still living in Sant'Arsenio. In the Provence of Salerno. I know it is a common name and may be difficult to find my family. However I want to try anyway. My Father's name is Francesco Costa, born on 23rd of Nov. 1884. His Father was Giuseppi Costa and his Mother was M. Ippolito. My Mother's name was M. Guaimano and her Mother's name was A. Barone. They all came from Sant'Arsenio. My Father had a brother Romaldo, and George and a sister named Giusepine. My Father came to America in 1899. I know there are other Costa's that live in Sant'Arsenio that we are not related to.
Sincerely,
John Costa

There are 24 Costas still living in Sant' Arsenio. I looked them up in the Italian White Pages and this is what I came up with..

www.paginebianche.it/e...senio&ind=

Perhaps you could see if anyone still lives near where your parents were born and try to contact them to see if they are related? Sometimes, you contact one person and you might get lucky or they may know who you are related to.

Thank you for your reply, how would you suggest I find our relatives? Would there be birth or Church records I could search? Sant'Arsenio has only 2700 or so people and you found 24, with the name Costa, that may difficult to find. Do you know the if there is an e-mail for the Church or town records, that I could write to?
Sincerely, John Costa

HI John,

The LDS has microfilmed the civil records for the town but they only go to 1910. You can order them from your local Family History Center or Library. These are the film numbers and descriptions:

Nati 1866-1910 (Gli anni sono fuori ordine.) Indici decennali (nati) 1886-1895 FHL INTL Film
2016176 Item 3
Pubblicazioni 1866-1910 (fuori ordine) Matrimoni 1866-1910 (fuori ordine) Indici decennali (matrimoni) 1866-1875 1886-1895 Morti 1866-1890 (fuori ordine) Indice decennale 1866-1875 FHL INTL Film
2016177
Morti 1891-1910 Indice decennale (morti) 1886-1895 FHL INTL Film
2016178 Item 1

You could use them since the years are all grouped together (lucky) to find all your ancestors. After that it may get tricky. Due to privacy laws I'm not sure how much information the Commune will give you.

Another suggestion is to try and locate relatives through www.facebook.com While facebook used to be primarily a social network, I found it's been great for making contact with relatives.

To search for relatives without annoying half the town proceed like this. Take the brothers and sisters who remained in Italy and either find their birth record in the microfilms or request from the Comune. If you are lucky there will be a notation of their marriage on the birth record. Note: Sometimes these notations are only found on the copy the Comune has and not on the microfilms.
Then request the Stato di Famiglia for these couples. You should be sure to state your relationship in your letter to the Comune. This should take you to someone born in living memory. THEN write your letter to the appropriate surnames asking if they are the children/Grandchildren of the couples found.

I have found a Costa in Sant'Arsenio, however we were not related. At least that is what they told me. There must be someone I am related to that still lives in that town. I would like to visit where my parents lived. Perhaps even the house they lived in.

Sometimes the ones that are left are descended through the female line and no longer baer the family name. Many times the sons emigrated leaving only sisters behind.
I deal with this sort of thing regularly and it is not always easy to get a straight answer especially if they are not really interested. I recently asked my father in law if he knew of a Di Ruscio or Mammone family who I was sure lived in our neighborhood. They would have been about his age. He said knew no one. A year later after I had located the family AND the house where they lived which was at the bottom of our driveway and next door to some good friends of his I rephrased the question. This time I asked, who lived in the house 'down there'. He immediately gave me the Di Ruscio surname I had asked about a year previously.
I have been lucky in finding some houses still standing, others are unrecognizable from the original and others no longer exist or cannot be identified as the house numbering has changed.
I hope you get lucky.
