surname Barberis

Postby digger2cp » 25 Apr 2010, 14:20

I am looking for my husbands Italian/French ancestors by the names of Count de Francisco Barberis (b. 1apr1868 Caselle Torinese, Italy) who married Domenica Katarina Riva (b. 16oct1876 Italy) in 1895 Italy. I know they had a son, Dominic b. 15nov1896 Casina Madonna, Italy & by 1904 they were living here in Fulton County, Illinois. I think they immigrated around 1901 to this area. Family members told me his parents were Francesco Barberis & Rosanna, and Domenica Katarina Riva's parents were Antonio & Domenica (Bianco) Riva & Antonio later married Mary Blasant. I really don't know how to search for Italian ancestors. I have a hand written account that tells about the Barberis clan & how Francisco (Frank) joined the French Foreign Legion for 5 years to gain a passport. I have other Italian tidbits that claim he was a descendent of Frederico Barberis who joined Garibaldi's Redshirts.
Thanks in advance for any guidance,
Cathy

Go to ww.google.com and put in title BARBERIS SURNAME-GENEALOGY-CASELLE TORINESE-ITALY for any research already conducted or being conducted on this surname in that townh of origin.

The Barberis surname is listed in the Italian surname dictionary as the variant of the base surnamer BARBIERI =Peter=

Having the correct birth date for son Domenico Barberis and for Francesco you can contact your nearest Family History Center:
http://www.familysearch.org/eng/library ... et_fhc.asp

and ask to rent some microfilms of the civil registration of the town of Caselle, especially these:

Nati 1890-1910 (births 1890-1910)-- Pubblicazioni 1866-1884 (marriage banns)
FHL INTL Film 2095556 Items 1 - 2

and

Nati 1866-1890 (births 1866-1890)
FHL INTL Film 2095555 Item 2

You can check the microfilm by yourself and find the original birth act for Domenico and for Francesco which list their parents names and places of birth and other details such as address where the babies were born , occupation of their parents, names of witnesses etc....

Here is the link to find the town microfilmed by the Mormons:
