Giovanni Rossi, Montenerodomo

Postby familyfromtheboot » 06 Feb 2010, 02:43

My great grandfather was Giovanni Rossi. He was born in 1890 in Montenerodomo, Italy to Teresa Anna Francesca Fedele Pasquarelli and Fedele Rossi. I have his military discharge papers from 1919 (Italy). I noticed many rubber stamp marks on it. One of the stamps is a circle and I can see the words "immigrazione" and "Napoli". There is another word but I cannot make it out. There is also a stamp that says "R. Consolate Generale D'Italia, Paguto Differenza Indennita', Traver???? E Indennita' Viaggie, New York APR 3 1920".

Does anyone know if men were allowed to use their military papers as their passports when traveling or immigrating?

Also, I have very little info on his mother Teresa Pasquarelli.

Thanks,
Erin

Welcome :-)

There are many here at the forum who can assist you. Can you post a copy of the document? It will help to answer some of your questions.

Since your questions refer primarily to the stamps, do you think you could post larger images of these parts of the document? This is very small and difficult to read.

I hope I have enlarged the stamps enough. They are hard to read to begin with.

The first one seems to refer to some allowances for travel through New York...

But I will defer to Livio or Lucap or suanj to verify that.

The second is difficult.
