Church archives in Frosinone 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 Anagni and Frosinone province, you could plan to investigate churches’ archives by yourself (or with us!), but from abroad is very difficult to obtain any result unless you find a reliable local help.

Another important source of information is the “Archivio di Stato” (National archive) in Bari.


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.

It’s important to plan your activities to carry on with simple goals (eg. search for a single date of birth, the name of an ancestor, the date of a marriage, etc.)

    I am researching my father’s ancestry. Here is what I know: Name-Ernesto Cecilia, Father – Giacomo Cecilia, Born – 7/28/1923, Birth registered – 8/1/1923, Mother – Nazzarena Santonico (not 100% certain of spelling of last name), Town – Anagni Province of Frosinone. Giacomo immigrated to the US in 1925. Ernesto immigrated to the US in 1931/1932. Mother (Nazzarena) died between 1925 and 1931 we believe.

    Ciao! I’m researching my family history and was stuck after my great grandparents who emigrated from Italy in 1924. Their daughter, my great aunt, said my great grandfather was Ignazio Cerasoli and was born 11/11/1898 in Anagni. His father was Luigi Cerasoli. Luigi came to the US in 1955 at age 86. Ignazio had a brother, Reginaldo. My great grandmother was Italia Cerasoli, maiden name Cecilia. She was born either in Anagni or Rome on 1/2/1898. Italia had a sister, Regina. At one point she lived in Sicily. I do not know my great grandfather’s mother’s name or my great grandmother’s parents names. If you can help to find out any more about my ancestors or possibly to find living relatives I’d greatly appreciate it. Grazie!
