Thanks to Lou Loccisano from the Calabria DNA Project for making available and Carmen Papallo from the Famiglie di Martone,Italy Genealogy Project for extracting the Martone, Reggio Calabria 1745 Catasto.
The Catasto Onciario were records of taxes paid by the commoners of a comune to the City and list all items in their possession at they time. This is what the taxes were based on and were taken in the mid 1700?s. They also list any servants living on the property at the time.
As seen on both websites, Louis and Carmen each have deep roots in Martone and both have shared so much of their research with us. More civil records and additional information can also be found on Calabria Exchange.
We are currently in the process of extracting the 1745 Catasto Onciario for the Comune of Gioiosa. At the present time it is almost 50% complete. Images and extractions should be completely uploaded sometime in August.
Stay tuned for further updates on this and many other exciting new projects.
We are pleased to announce a genealogy data sharing partnership has been formed been Calabria Exchange and Il Circolo Calabrese .
As part of that relationship, ICC will be hosting genealogical data that has been extracted from various towns around Calabria while using ICCs database engine to make everything searchable online. What this means to you is that you will soon have access to more genealogy data on both websites using faster and easier methods of searching.
Currently C|E hosts over 160, 000 extractions and images to various records for towns in the province of Reggio Calabria while ICC is largest Calabrese membership organization in the world devoted to the study and preservation of the genealogy, history, culture and language of the Calabria region of Italy.
websites and databases are getting face lifts so if you are looking through the sites and they look a bit
messy then this is the reason. I was hoping the transition would go a bit more quickly but this is what happens when you have too many things on the go.
You will also find the addition of many new records on the sites as people have been emailing things from all over recently. I have been putting up some special family pages as well for several people from various parts of Calabria, Sicily and Frosinone.
If you have any information or records to share then please contact me through the feedback form and let me know.
