Rosalie (Piazza) Ricotta

Postby piazza16428 » 26 Oct 2010, 19:28

Hopefully someone out there can help.

I am trying to find information on my grandfathers (Salvatore (Sam) Piazza sister Rosalie Piazza.

This is the information that I have.
She most likely was born in Vallelunga Pratameno, Caltansetta, Sicily, Italy
and her parents were Cristoforo and Concetta (Ciappa) Piazza. I believe she was married to a man by the last name Ricotta and based on some new information that I just received may have owned a hotel in Italy. I do know that she never immigrated to the United States like the rest of her family and I am trying to find out the following information

Her date of birth and death
Her husbands full name
Her children's names

If any one out there can provide this information I would greatly appreciate any data that you can share.

Thank you in advance

Dear Sam, to make this research you need to have approx year of birth, at least, in order to check maybe 5 years early and 5 years later

I am not sure of her birth date due to the fact that I have just learned that she did not immigrate to the United States because she was married and she was well established in Sicily when her mother and brothers and sitsters immigrated. I do know that her brother Manfredo was born in 1877. Between 1877 and 1901 there were seven children born their birth years are as follows

Manfredo 1877
Francesco 1889
Giuseppe 1896
Savatore (Sam) 1899
Giuseppa 1900
and
Maria 1901

Given the dates that I have I believe that she may have been born between Manfredo 1877 and Francesco 1889 since there is such a gap in the years that I have already confirmed and since she was old enough to be married when her mother left the country in 1913. On the family tree that we have created we have her birth year as 1902 but I believe that is incorrect at this point and I am trying to just clear up this puzzle.

Hope that helps.

Sam

Yes, you can send a request to Vallelunga Pratameno civil record office, and request to the registrar to check between 1877 and 1889.
For the registrar there is not problem to check for 12 years, there could be a problem for him to check between 1877 and 1902, too many years, he would not do it
Hopefully on her birth record there is the annotation (if any) of her marriage.
Write only in italian to Vallelunga Pratamone civil record office
