The second one is in Italian but it has some beautiful pictures and I'm sure the others here would help translate a few words here and there if you are interested in a particular article. The may not be able to translate it word for word but at least give you the "Readers Digest" Version.

Hope this helps. Very Happy

Thank you for those two site the pictures are beautiful. I did spell Laviano wrong its with an o not an a.

Is there any site where I can look at Italian Obits. I was told the story by my father that his grandfather Dominic Massimei was robbed and then killed. He owned a farm in Artena and was coming back from Rome after delivering his produce, thats when the incident occured, I estimate the dated sometime between 1896 and 1904. Any help would be appreciated.

From my understanding, there isn't anything online with regards to Italian obits but maybe one of our Italian members can help you.

I made a research but didn't find it. I also think that there isn't anything online about it.
