Forte Colorigh- Udine, Italy

Postby hippie4jc84 » 23 May 2010, 02:15

I haven't yet expanded my research past what I can find on the computer, but I'm just trying to see what more I can learn...
The farthest I can go back is to my GGG-grandparents Giovanni (i think) and Teresa Forte. Teresa's tombstone in Joelton, TN says she lived 1830-1917.

I've found a few census pages saying that their son Pietro and his wife Isolina came from (Buia, Udine, ) Italy in 1879 (Nat. in 1884) and settled in TN.

and (I hope this isn't too much all at once) but here's what I have (along with some siblings the more recent it gets):

Giovanni Forte -1890 / Teresa 1830-1917 >
Pietro Forte 1858-1938 / Isolina Colorigh 1860-1940 >
Victor Forte 1891-1977 / Theresa Siebert 1890-1984 >
Anthony Forte 1911-2001 / Lorene Welch 1917-1986 (my grandparents)

So I am curious about the Fortes and the Colorighs as well. The second name sounds Irish to me, but I'm thinking they all came from the same town in Italy.
Thanks for any input/advice!!

Angela,

there is a very helpful site (just in the case you don't know) for your research:

http://www.friulinprin.beniculturali.it/ita/WebAsud/

and also the Familysearchlab site has helpful databases for Tennessee:

for example:

The farthest I can go back is to my GGG-grandparents Giovanni (i think) and Teresa Forte. Teresa's tombstone in Joelton, TN says she lived 1830-1917.


check the Tennessee Deaths and Burials, 1874-1955
Teresa Forte's maiden name was Teresa Barachino...

Thank you so much! I've already learned so much from just one of the sites you mentioned! I'm looking forward to getting into the site for Friuli, but I'll have to do some language translating, that might take me a little longer.. Thanks again!
