To my eyes, father's name is Antonio Braida living in Canischio, San Colombano Belmonte. Going to Angels Camp to join sister Giovannina Bernardino and brother Pietro.

Hi Biff :D

I believe Carolina had two brothers and one sister to join in the U.S. (Bernardino, Pietro and Giovannina)

1903 arrival manifest for Bernardino:

http://www.ellisisland.org/EIFile/popup ... &line=0015

Bernardino Braida, age 26, single form San Colombano to Stockton CA to join his brother Pietro...

Considering that Giovanna Braida arrived in the U.S. on 1899 I was wondering if the Angie Perini on 1900 census (same age, same year of arrival of Giovanna Braida, living in the same house with her brother? Peter Braida) was Giovanna Braida...

In fact I found the 1910 census for the same household:

1910 United States Federal Census
about Antone Perino
Name: Antone Perino
Age in 1910: 40
Estimated birth year: abt 1870
Birthplace: Italy
Relation to Head of House: Head
Father's Birth Place: Italy
Mother's Birth Place: Italy
Spouse's name: Giovanna
Home in 1910: Angels, Calaveras, California
Marital Status: Married
Race: White
Gender: Male
Year of Immigration: 1886
Neighbors: View others on page
Household Members: Name Age
Antone Perino 40 head, born in Italy, married (second marriage) since 10 years :!: , miner in a gold mine
Giovanna Perino 26 wife, born in IT, married since 10 years (first marriage), mother of no children, immigration year 1899
Victor Perino 12 son, born in CA

Do you believe possible that Giovanna Perino's maiden name was Giovanna Braida...??

:lol:

I have the confirmation that the wife of Antonio Perino was Giovanna Braida :!: possible Carolina's sister....

from the site:
http://www.angelfire.com/ca6/cemeterykid2/marrsurb.htm

Braida, Giovanna Marriage date: 10/29/1900 Perino, Antonio Book E Page 625

and the other Braida (I strongly believe she was another sister, maybe Apollonia?)

Braida, Paulina Marriage date: 12/29/1917 22 Italy Mengehelli, Bartolo Book H Page 82
