      Ironically, I used the familysearch.org site for the first time after years of just letting things lie and found my grnadparents marriage cert online.  There I found family names I never knew of like Gionette and DiSauro or Disauro.  Amazing.  Both names are from the Terracina and Itri towns.

      I live down in FLorida.  I searched the  familysearch.org site and nothing came up.  I will definitely look into it further, but at first try, nothing showed up.
        How do I research the files in CT?

      Thanks for your help,
      Mary Anne Huck

      I think we all recognize those last names  :-)
      You should seriously go to the local LDS center (mormon church).   If you know your great great grandparents, the LDS will probably have their birth records on microfilm (probably before 1865) and you can go backwards to 1809 from there.  You can also check their website familysearch.org, but you will get more info thru the microfilms.  You could call the Itri town hall if you speak good Italian.  They have the records there too, going back to about 1809.  They also have the records after the 1860s.  The LDS only has from about 1809 to about 1865.  It would be easier I think to just order microfilm from the Mormon church and go through it yourself.  The Itri records are way down in the basement in that town hall and stacked every which way all dusty and some falling apart.  If I had the money I'd take a trip back there again just to clean and organize everything down there for them.

      My father was born in Itri, in 1913. I have many family members from this are and would love to know more about their history and how to go about finding it.
      FATHER: John Picano
      GRANDFATHER: Michael Archangelo Picano

      GRANDMOTHER: Rosina Arzano
      MATERNAL GREAT GRANDMOTHER: Teresina Forgiorgio

      Anyone out there recognize these names? Do I contact the town hall in Itri to find out more information? Is there an address or email address for that information or possible records online?

      Any information would be of help,

      Mary Anne Picano Huck
