Certificato di Stato di Famiglia

Family Status Certificate

The Office “Anagrafe” (Office of the Census) for each family keeps a record called in Italian “Certificato di Stato di Famiglia” (we could translate in English as “Certificate of Family Status”).
This certificate shows the composition of the family unit.
Typical info included in this kind of document are:
– names and dates and places of birth, etc. for each family members who were still present at the time the document was prepared.

This is a sample of a “Certificato di Stato di Famiglia” issued in Italy 

Information usually available on Certificato di Stato di Famiglia
– Full name of the head of the household
– Full names of all members living in the same household
– For each member in the family:
– The relationship of each member to the family

Required Documents to request the Certificato di Stato di Famiglia

Fees requested by Office Anagrafe (*)

A legal letter = € 16,00 for stamps + € 5.16 for each individual recorded in the Stato de Famiglia in the required date.

Eg: MARIO ROSSI’s declaration of family status.
If the members of family are: Mario Rossi, his wife, 2 sons and a daughter:

The total cost will be 16,00 + (5,16 x 5) = euros 41,80.

  1. My great grandfather was born in Castalvetrano (Favoroso) and my GGM (his wife) was from Campobello di Mazara (Cartafalsa). Interestingly enough I was just made aware of the Piazza Favoroso in Sicily. I am interested in finding any relatives that may still be there. Would this be a place to start?

  2. I would like to receive one of these documents for two families from Liedolo, San Zenone degli Ezzelini Treviso Italy
    How do I proceed?

  3. I would like to get my grandfathers birth record along with a list of his siblings. I know his mother and fathers name. I have tried searching online but have not been able to find anything about my grandfather or his mother and father. How can you help me? I would appreciate your prompt reply.
