I'm looking for my great grandparents' birth and marriage certificates and am not sure what commune to write to. On my grandfather's birth certificate (from the US) his parents both wrote that they were from Trivina, Italy. Does anyone know where this is or how to find out? Oddly Google maps doesn't show it and I can't find much else online.
Thanks so much for the reply! I also thought it might be that, but there are also places called: Trivino Province of Como, Italy Trevina, Firenze Trevina, Toscano (the latter two aren't on google maps but seem to be in some Italian civil records).
I don't have the manifest, but I do have his arrival date and know he didn't come through Ellis Island. I found his arrival date on his naturalization form, but am not sure how to track down the port of entry with this info. Any ideas? Thanks again, it is so helpful!
Lovely, thanks. I know his name to be Nicholas Casurella. Although I have seen it listed on various forms like this:
Nicholas Casurella (death certificate) Nicholas Casurello (on his US census form from 1940) Nicola Casuriello (on his naturalization form) Nicola Carosiello (I am pretty sure this is him on a passenger list on a ship from Naples to the US).
Hi, I believe that he was born in Trivigno, Potenza province... Nicola Maria CAROSIELLO born in Trivigno on 14 apr 1882 #44, son of Rocco Carosiello 26 old, farmer, and of Raffaela Prete(?)24 old, farmer. Nicola married in Trivigno at Anna Rosa Carosiello ( maiden name as husband surname) on 2 Jun 1906

This brought tears to my eyes. I've been searching for this information for years, and you found it so quickly! It is incredible how the surname changed over the years. Anna (my great-grandmother) died young, and my great-grandfather Nicholas remarried. My grandfather (also Rocco) left very young after his dad remarried and we knew nothing about any of them, so this is really gold to us. I have no words to express my gratitude!
Now, I suppose, I must just write to the given towns in Trivigno and request their certificates?
Truly so helpful, thank you so very much. Warmly, Christina

it could be your ancestor? suanj
Hi just a correction: the 2 jun 1906 is the date of transcription marriage note on the birth act side; but Nicola and Anna Rosa married on 8 Feb 1906..
here the marriage act: #3 the surname is wrote Carusiello ...
Anna Rosa Carosiello was born in Trivigno on 28 May 1884 #41, daughter of Michele Carosiello 43 old, farmer, and of Angela Teresa Pastore, 40 old, farmer
for the certificates you can write in Trivigno:
