Obtaining birth certificate of Antonetta Castagna born 1922 Brooklyn
« on: Saturday 09 December 17 10:53 GMT (UK) »
I am trying to obtain the birth certificate of the above person.  Does anyone know how I could do this, please?  I am mainly trying to find out who her parents were.  Attached is the index to her birth but, as you can see, the certificate number is blotchy so can't read it.

Thank you Sandra for that information.  Unfortunately, I live in the UK and am not a direct descendant of the person, she is distantly related and I believe you have to prove how you are related.  Also do not possess a credit card to pay (nor does any other member of family or friends).

Just wondered whether there is any other way to view an index of the birth that shows the parents.  I believe the parents are Angelina Castagno (nee Pacitti, a cousin of my Great Aunt) and unknown Castago).

There are no birth certificates on line for that time frame - have you found the family on census  ???

Can't find anything. 

I don't think Angelina Pacitti, who I think is Antonetta's mother, was married to Mr Castagna when she had Antonetta so can't trace a marriage.

What do you know about Angelina Pacitti ? When was she born ?  Have you found her on census ?

Angelina Pacitti (born 1896 in Italy), married to Antonio Panetta in 1926 in Philadelphia, trying to pass off Antonetta Castagna as their daughter.  However, in Antonetta's husband's obituary it states Antonetta's maiden name as Castagna not Panetta, that's when I traced her birth in Brooklyn.

Think you should have given this info in the original post - spent ages looking for a Pacitti - Castagna marriage - what a waste of time   ::)
