Searching for Girimontes

Postby langelo » 22 Jul 2008, 23:39

As I have had no luck for the past 6 months finding the birthplace of my grandfather, Ignazio Girimonte , I am asking for help locating comunes where Girimontes may have lived in Calabria.

I have scoured most of Cosenza and will eliminate that province, but would love to have suggestions re: which comunes in Crotone, Reggio Calabria and Catanzaro I should write to.

Thanks so much,
Lois

I'm glad to help!

and just to complete your "family history" here are some Stoneham city directories from Ancestry.com about your ancestors:

the first I found is for the 1913 year... there are referring to previous years but Girimonte's name do not appear...

1913:

Where you able to find Ignazio's child birth certificates in Italy?

Hi Laura,

Thanks for the Stoneham info, didn't have that! I have all the birth certificates for my grandmother and my uncles from San Giovanni in Fiore, but cannot find Ignazio--which I need desperately for the dual citizenship. I do have Ignazio's naturalization papers, but no place of birth stated.
