Scalise Origins

To answer the question of our Scalise / Borelli Italian origins, I have researched through original records for the following information. I knew that the family was from the small town of Sersale, in the providence of Catanzaro, in the Region of Calabria in the arch of the foot of Italy. So I went to the Family History Library site and found the microfilms of the original records. If you know your exact town in Italy, you can see if they have microfilmed records by going to http://www.familysearch.org/Search/searchcatalog.asp and doing a Place Search. Take any film numbers to your local Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints Family History Library and they can help you rent them. Of course if you are anywhere near Salt Lake City, UT you can just use the main library and view the films there.

The records from Italy do not self-translate as they travel across the ocean. They are in Italian, and the handwriting is poor, but they do hold a wealth of information. A marriage record in Italy is more like a portfolio of family information and might have the death records of the parents of the happy couple if they have died.

If this is your family, great! Please contact me! If you use any information on this site, MAKE SURE THE SOURCES ARE NOTED along with the facts! The Sources are listed in the EndNotes at the bottom of the page. I feel very strongly that my hard work should have origins too, so that the next researcher will know exactly where the information came from, and will not have to duplicate the search unless they want to.
