This just in – Bill just found several birth records which have helped filled in some details about his great-grandfather’s family.
The records [Italia, Modena, Stato Civile (Archivio di Stato), 1806-1942] are the birth registrations of Bill’s grandfather and his grandfather’s brother and sister. Apart from the birth dates he was able to determine his great-grandmother’s maiden name, as well as the middle names of her children.
Note: The births are registered in the Modena Archives, but we believe that the actual births took place in Bologna.
