While reviewing some of my family's records I realized how old my 3x great grandfather was when he had children. The Archives pulled records of 2 children born after 1806 that they could find. When I realized he was 38 and his wife was 37 when my 2x great grandfather was born (1811) I thought geez! he may have had another wife or there were more children born prior to 1806. Wel, the church burned down with all the records so couldn't use that source so I started collecting other family's records to see if they show him as the father.

I think everything is worth a try I found other members of my dad's family, by accident when I was researching a film for another comune and when I noticed the surname of a bride had the same surname as my dad's family.
Only recently researching the processti for marriages (SP?) Liz from another forum discovered one of my GGGrandfather's brothers had been married twice.
I also found another family member from a death certificate it said the two sons had signed the record and it gave their names.
So go on have a go!
