Family from Montenerodomo

Postby familyfromtheboot » 06 Feb 2010, 04:04

Both of my mother's parents were from Montenerodomo. Both sides also have all of the same surnames too! I am researching the Rossi's, D'Antonio's, and Carozza's from Montenerodomo. My great grandmother was Rosaria Carozza. She was born in 1891 to Ludovico Carozza and Gelsomina Rossi. Rosaria had a brother (Antonio Carozza) that I am looking for more info about. He was electrocuted while working in the coal mines in Washington County, PA somewhere between 1915 and 1917. Maybe the Vesta #5 mine??

Thank you for searching for info for me. I do not think this is my direct relative. My great grandmother was the first born in 1891. I think Antonio Carozza was born abt. 1895. This is probably a relative though. Montenerodomo is a very old and very small town of about 1000 people. I appreciate your efforts.

I do not have either manifest. I do know that Rosaria Carozza Rossi came to the U.S on November 5, 1926 on the Conte Biancomano with her 3 daughters.

Looks like June 8, 1926 to me:

I found it on ancestry.com now. Sine I had the wrong date, I could not find the ship. Thanks so much. This site has been so helpful.

You're welcome.

Giovanni's manifest is going to be very difficult to find as many of the microfilms for his voyage (SS Pannonia arrived Ellis Island April 5, 1920) are badly focused and only partially transcribed.

PS: Once again, we see that what we think we know for certain often turns out to be incorrect. Rosa arrived June 8, 1926 not Rosaria November 5, 1926, for example.

Johnny is right,

People's memories are not as accurate as they think. It is always better to do a little wider search, you find all kinds of goodies. :wink:
