|Riccardo, would I order both the foglio matricolare and the lista di leva?|
And, of course, it would be the Salerno Province.
Oh! thank you for letting me know what those are.
I was quite surprised today to find a packet from Italy with some new information about my family. (I sent an email to them back in April and didn't hear anything, so this was quite a nice treat).
Anyway, they included a document called the "esito di leva" for my Great Grandfather. I think this is the same thing as the lista di leva, no?
I could read all of the information about his physical attributes and family, but there is a section next to the physical attributes that I could not understand.
With this information would there be any way to tell if my ancestor served or has a foglio matricolare? Who would I need to contact?
Just fyi, this document came from the Archivo di Stato - Ministero per i Beni e le Attivita Culturali in Ragusa.
Thanks in advance for any help!
|Just so everyone is up to date, the Archivio di Stato in Frosinone destroyed their Lista di Leva for lack of space!! They only have foglio matricolare from 1888 (Not sure of exact year but late 1880's) That is the year they enlisted not the birth year.|
Many comune's in the Province still have their copy of the Lista di Leva even as far back as 1809-(Sora)
|This is just unbelieveble, I hope it happened in the past, no during the last times, because it is a crime to destroy records that have history value, please let us know the details |
