Hi Sandra,
Just got a reply from the Diocese Records of Como, not good news I'm afraid.
All records prior to 1929 are held by the Church in question.  At the moment there are 338, but up until the mid 1800's there were 494.
Born in Como could mean the Town of Como or in the Province of Como.  Latter meaning there are more churches. 
The surname Travi can be found throughout the Province of Como.
They suggested I contact the "Archivo Storico Diocesano of Milan" as they may have some records.  I telephoned them and they have no records.
They also say the only way to find any records is to contact every Church. Obviously not knowing the actual town at least, that is going to be a very long drawn out process and take sometime.  It could end up unfruitful.

What would like me to do?

Hi Steve:

Thank you for the kind offer.  My ancestors were Irish and English; I just started researching for a friend - I don't know where to begin when it comes to Italian records.

I do not yet have full details, but I hope to try to eventually find a marriage in Italy (I know - it's a big place)  :-[ for a Simone Gimelli and Mary/Maria Durarte/Duarte c1901.  My research is early, but there is a possibility that Simone was born in Genoa, possibly "Loano, Genoa".  Simone was born in 1878 and Mary/Maria was born c1878.  We don't yet know where in Italy Mary/Maria was born.

Would you be able to find their marriage without knowing the exact date, or without knowing any location?  Thank you for reading my post.  Any feedback would be very much appreciated; thank you.  Lisa

PS  Simone was also known as Samuel when he lived in the states.
     Update:  According to the California Death Index, Maria Durante was born in 1878.
     We are now wondering if his name might actually be Gimelli Simone.

Hi Steve, thankyou so much but l think that is asking just to much to search that lot, at least we can assume he came from Como as it was only a guess putting the other factors together, we think Francesco may have left under a cloud as apart from him saying he came from there nothing was ever said or not passed down which was very unusual from an Italian, we have never been able to find my grandfather or his brothers birth in London as they were born before marriage of Francesco and Sarah ( even as it was 30 years after birthregistration came into force) and even Sarah was a puzzle but we finally found her not born in London as stated and her name was Matilda Sarah it had taken us 5 years to find her so l think Francesco is a brick wall l will have to sit behind. I do hope to come to Italy next year and go to Como just to see where he came from.
Thank you once again for all your hard work.

Hi Steve62,

I am trying to help a friend trace her ancestor, Luigi Guiseppe BERRETTI, who was born in Italy (possibly Pesaro) in 1856 to Gysonon and Letitia (nee GALONE?) Berretti.

He was the eldest child of six. His siblings were; Giuseppe, Cesare, Assumpta, Isola and Teresina.

Luigi emigrated to New Zealand about the 1870ís, married in 1888 and had several children.

Any help you can give would be appreciated as the family knows nothing about Luigi's life or family in Italy.

TO ALL WAITING A REPLY FROM ME.

I am still waiting for replies after sending reminders and apologise.  I have not forgotten.  Now is Italian holidays, so more waiting!!
Some news which might help in the future.
There is a Petition and  Consultation for Italy to have a "Freedom of Information Act".  This should enhance the current law.  Hopefully it will make it easier to obtain records.  Time span? Have to wait and see.
