#1: Alpini Regiment Author: Aussie462, Posted: Sun Jul 05, 2009 7:40 pm ---- My grandfather was in the 6th regiment of the Alpini in WW1 and died in the war.
My father was in the 9th regiment of the Alpini in 1935.
They came from Rotzo Provance of Vicenza
Where would I be able to find these military records.

Some of the LDS microfilms also have lista di levas. My friend is researching some towns in that province so I will check with her tomorrow night when I see her. What are your surnames from there? Maybe she knows of them.

Borgo Casale, 91
If you want documents sent by post you have to send stamps for the answer.
Give them as many details as you have: father's and mother's name, Date of birth and place. The surname Spagnolo is quite common.

#7: Re: Alpini Regiment Author: Aussie462, Posted: Thu Jul 09, 2009 7:07 pm ---- Thank you for the address.
I think it may take them a few weeks to reply.
#8: Re: Alpini Regiment Author: Cathy, Posted: Thu Jul 09, 2009 10:38 pm ---- Thanks Ada! I checked with my friend and the LDS did not film Vicenza Province lista di levas. There are other records available through them though.
I have some great images of a few Alpini regiment post cards from WWI if you are interested. Let me know here or by PM and I can email them to you.

It's easier for me as I'm in Italy and can read Italian. It's a pity they don't provide an English version for the Archives' sites. They might be afraid to receive thousands of requests I suppose.
Thank you Nuccia for saying I'm a star. I will tell my family. I guess they might find it useful in case of an electricity blackout ....... . No, I'm kidding, they think I'm a Superstar
