www.pier21.ca/html for ship entries into Canada at that time. Go to family history library of mormon church near your home and look up civil records for your family thru microfilm records. Read book Discovering Your Italian Ancestors by Lynn Nelson. Peter

Hi Luigina ( I suppose this is your name , because Gina is the contracted form of Luigina = Louise )

Well , you can search at www.comuni.it and www.parrocchie.it.
Certainly you can know with your relatives at least some informations like the city ( comune ) where your ancestors come from. I am brasilian of 4rd generation, but I know well where mine come from.
Do you live in Toronto ? I was there in september for the 2nd time, surely it is a very beautiful city.
Hoping of having done you some help
Merry Christmas

Dear Luigi paolo from Brazil. This is a serious forum for people who know what they are talking about and not intended to be a social website to chat amiably about casual comments in tracing her family town of origin in Italy. I feel quite sure that if she knew she would say so and your advice for her to speak to her relatives despite what I told her to do professionally makes you look foolish. Peter
