Church archives in Trieste province may instead contain even older information, but they are far less accessible from abroad (and almost impossible by email).
Then,parishes send information not easily.

If you have the opportunity to visit Trieste and Trieste province, you could plan to investigate churches’ archives by yourself, but from abroad is very difficult to obtain any result unless you find a reliable local help.


In any case, never give up! Probably the distance from your country and Italy, some difficulties in understanding and in translation, could complicate your search but this should not discourage you.

The important thing is to have in mind a plan of actions to carry on with simple goals (eg. search for a single date of birth, family members, the date of a marriage, etc.)

    My father came to Canada from Trieste in the fifties. He was born in 1935 His name was Ceasre Santini. He passed away very young and I know very little about his family. I know he had a couple of brothers one name was Livio but I’m not sure what the others names are.
    i would really like to know more about my Dad’s family.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    The tips on this page will be very useful to me when I visit Trieste to find out the roots of my family tree. My paternal grandmother was Iolanda Giorgini, she leftTrieste after WW2 having married an English sailor, later divorcing and remarrying my grandfather. All I have to go on is her birth date, UK death and marriage certificates, also I know that her brother, Pino Giorgini, emigrated to Australia and her sister emigrated to the US around the same time and that my great grandmothers name was also Iolanda. How likely is it do you think that I will be able to trace that side of the family?

    Thanks,
    Rich

    My great grandfather was born in 1890 in Tarcetta. His name was Angelo Banchig, he came to the USA in 1913. He settled near saltsburg, Pa. He married Mary Paludgnach in 1920 and had 4 children. Mary and her parents came from Tarcetta also. Mary and her mother Louiga Battistig immigrated to USA in 1910 when Mary was 6. Her father Giovanni came earlier. They did leave their oldest daughter with family since she had some kind of disfigurement and wasn’t allowed to come. Any new info would be appreciated.

    I am trying to find information about my g-g-grandmother, who was born in 1865 in Trieste, which was part of Austria at the time. Her name was Santina Ann Rachik (or Rachic or Rachich or Rachick). She married John Brown in Alexandria, Scotland and afterward emigrated to Canada. I am going to be in Trieste in the fall and would like to find out as much information as I can before I go.

    Is it possible to locate my father’s side of the family? His name was Nicolo Petronio born to the parents of Pietro Petronio and Renata Vernier in Trieste, Italy on 22 August 1907. Any help would be appreciated. There is a Dr. Nicolo Petronio and Renata Petronio in the Trieste phone book, which I am hoping are my relatives. Any help would be appreciated.

    Thank you,
    Renata Petronio Nuzzi
