Thanks go to Eugenio Berenger for compiling these lists of persons from Pescosolido who applied for a passport in 1903 in the Province of Frosinone. A partial list of persons from Sora is also shown. Others towns in the Province are listed in the register but we are publishing just these extractions. Since the passport register also includes persons from Cassino and the surrounding towns who lost their civil records during WW2 this may provide another opportunity to obtain an ‘alternative’ record that can be used for citizenship purposes. NOTE: The decision of whether to permit these alternative records as proof of birth of an ancestor is the decision of the Italian Consulate.
Names and birth dates are included, together with occupation in the register. Eugene Berenger has researched Ellis Island records and added destinations and even the ship they traveled on, including the sailing (arrival) date. We cannot guarantee the information added by Eugene but it may help you identify your ancestor.
Although passport files including their relevant documents can be found for a small number of years in Naples, I have not found this type of file elsewhere. This ‘nulla osta’ from the Mayor of Isola del Liri to support a passport application to seek work outside the country is interesting. A ‘nulla osta’ was simply a declaration that a person was free to travel and basically was not wanted for any crimes or military service. This one is valid for 3 years and declares Vincenzo Cellupica to be married with two children and on permanent leave from the military service. It gives a detailed physical description together with his birth date and parents’ names.

Great post 😁
I have an Italian passport for my Great grand father Domenico Valente issued in Belfast N Ireland in 1930, I’m trying find out if the passport in genuine.
It states the date of birth July 1851 and place of birth San Pietro Infine but when I check the records on Antenati I can’t find his name
May I suggest you send a copy of the passport to San Pietro Infine and request a copy of the birth record. It doesn’t look like they have it, and it may even be the incorrect town BUT they may give you some suggestions. You might also write to the Consulate of Northern Ireland and ask them if they have a copy of the birth record in their files. Thank you for asking.
