CELESTINA BESSO SILVA

Postby kelbrinegar » 12 Oct 2010, 20:12

I am new to this site and would love any help available. My Husbands Grandmother is Celestina Besso Silva. She was born on 7th of April 1887 in Baldessaro Italy. She died 7 of sept 1964 in Rocks Springs wyoming USA.
I am looking for my husbands Great Grandparents: Giovanni Besso and his wife Albino Grosso. I believe they were in the same area as their daughter was born, in Baldessaro.
Does anyone have any information regarding my grand parents. I would appreciate your help.

Hello and welcome! :-)

Do you have this manifest for Celestina?

Arriving NY 1908, leaving father Giovanni Besso in Baldissaro.
Going to "bridgroom" Giacomo Silva in Rocks Springs, WY.

Maybe an arranged marriage?

Hi.
Just a note about the hometown.
Unfortunately, in the jurisdiction of the province of Turin, there are two villages with the same name ("Baldissero"), not far from each other!
One is closer to Turin, in fact its complete name is "Baldissero Torinese".
The other is 20 miles N-W of Turin, in the Canavese area (where I live), and its full name is "Baldissero Canavese".
Obviously, if you're searching for your ancestors records, the first thing to do is definitely defining which village is the right one.
According to my experience, both Besso and Silva are not uncommon surnames in this area, though I personally never met them linked in a double family name. Anyway, I would absolutely bet it's Baldissero Canavese and I would direct there my inquiries if I were in your shoe s.
Hope this helps.
Ciao,
Maurizio
