Restoration Fund for Picinisco

The Parish Census of San Lorenzo Martire in Picinisco was taken in 1853 and updated with births, marriages etc until the late 1890’s. It is an invaluable resource for tracing your family in Picinisco. Entire family groups complete with paretns names and birthdates can be found in one place.
Today, I was at the church and the book is falling apart. It is in desparate need of rebinding. The parish does not have the 300 euro it would take to restore this valuable resource.
Since I am there regularly I would like to make an offer to all who are researching their Picinisco heritage.
For each donation of 50 euro I will look up (the book is not in any kind of order) your family and send you a copy of the census.
Donations should be made via PAYPAL in Euro as a GIFT (via Family & Friends) to italysearch @ gmail.com (no spaces). Please mark it DONATION TO PICINSICO.
Your family information can be sent to the same email address and I will do the ‘look up’ and email you your family census.

      I now live in Picinisco permanently, and said census has still not been restored nearly 2 years after my previous comment. I could give more facts about this subject, but will refrain. Readers can make their own minds up about whether to make any more contributions.

        Hi Susie,
        If you are frustrated imagine how I feel. The money is safe and I expect to hand it over later this summer. The former priest would do nothing towrds this project but luckily the archivist from Frosinone lives in Picinisco and with her help and that of the new priest, Don Edmer, the project is finally moving ahead. I expect to receive the estimate (400 Euro) very soon.
        If you are now living in Picinisco, why not contact me and we’ll meet for coffee next time I am in Picinisco? I would love to meet you.
