I m still searching?

Postby tenby » 22 Oct 2008, 09:24

Still looking for my elusive ggrandfather, I found this marriage on family search and wondered if its him. Could someone please have a look on any census around that time, would it give his occupation. If it is him he was a bigamist as he never divorced my ggrandmother here in Wales UK.

I have the UK census with my ggrandmother and grandmother on but no Carlo.

Lynne,

The Charles here was born abt 21 Jan 1880. He came from France port to the US in 1897 and lived in Michigan for eight years before applying for a passport for his wife, Amalia (1878) and US born child Rose (1901). He lived in Michigan and became a US citizen in 1902.

If this sounds like it could be your Charles, let me know and I will post the info.

the paying english website www.findmypast.com has listings for migrations up and down years including 1879 for Bessolo and other surnames "B". They might consider a one time try for a minimal amount. =Peter=
