VIVONE AND CHARAVELLE FAMILY-ROVITO COSENZA

Postby wandah » 06 Jan 2009, 18:50

Hello everyone! I am researching my family tree and need lots of help!
My family ancestors were from Rovito Cosenza---Raffelina Charavelle, and Joseph Vivone. They emigrated to Canada I believe in 1904.
Their sons Alfredo Vivone and Franco Vivone emigrated on the ship Pesaro May 27.1920 . The ship went to Ellis Island? New York City and from there to Canada, where they settled in Port Arthur Ontario.

I want so much to know more about them!~ Joseph Vivone was a shoemaker.
Can anyone assist me in finding out any details? I hope I have spelled my grandmother's last name correctly.
Also, as a curious note, why did so many emigrate during that time? Was it the economy, war, any comments anyone?
I want to visit Italy this summer and for sure Rovito! But it would be so great to know more! Thank you to all for your help and I am trying to learn Italian :)

Dear Wandah if you wist to experience the pleasre of researching your own family genealogy free of charge then go to www.angelfire.com/ok3/pearlsofwisdom/fr ... earch.html

Of course we are here to answer any andall questions that may crop up in tfghe pursuit of your research objectives so its a win win situation for you,

1920 was just about one year and and a few months after the ww1 armistice on November 11, 1918. War broke out in 1914 in europe and transatlantic voyages between europe and the USA were disrupted. It was a time when immigration to the USA was being viewed negatively and families who were separated for the 6 years of wartime resumed their plans of immigrating to the USA, family reunions could take place and visits to and from europe resumed with vigor. =Peter=

The Stato records for the province of Cosenza are being put online free at this official site

http://88.59.143.158/ascs_web/index.fac ... 3FE8.node1

You have to register and it's free. Just put in the surname and search the province. New records are being added on a regular basis. You may also want to contact forum member Cathynap. She is the one that provided me this link and she is doing extensive research in Cosenza province.

Have a great day.
