Then,parishes send information not easily.

If you have the opportunity to visit Carpinone and Isernia 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.

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

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 looking for Francicus Tamasi who left Carpinone, Italy in 1882 for the U.S. His wife was Florence Cagnia. She left with her three children, Daniel, Nicholas and Asunta in 1890 to meet him in the U.S. The three children were born in Carpinone in the late 1870s and early 1880s.
    Any information about them would be much appreciated. Thank you.

    Since I haven’t been able to locate records for Vincenzo Campanile in Carpino maybe I should be looking in Carpinone (little Carpino). Carpinone is located along the Carpino river near Isernia.

    I have found a ship record for Vincenzo and his mother’s town is listed as Longano,It which is just a few miles from Carpinone.

    Born April, 1896.

    Where should I start looking. This is a very small comune.

    Hello, I am looking for relatives in Carpinone. I believe that my great grandfather came from Carpinone, although some records say that he was from Carponone, Campobasso. Information given to me says that his name was Angelo Martini born October 15, 1862 at Carponone, Campobasso, Italy. His marriage certificate says that he married in New York City on August 19, 1886 to my great grandmother, Maria DiGrazia of Potenza, Italy.

    Please help me to locate information about him, his parents, and also brothers and sisters. Is there a church where there are baptism records for him and his family? Are there city government records for them?

    Thank you so much for helping me. I greatly appreciate your help.
