Quick record lookup

Postby willperone » 10 Jan 2011, 07:29

My copy of the microfilm from Castelmezzano was returned to the LDS the other day before I could look a couple people up. Could someone with the Ancestry.com world membership do a quick lookup and scan for me?

Go here:
search.ancestry.com/search/db.aspx?dbid=1886
Enter: Province -> Potenza, Locality -> Castelmezzano, Record Type -> Morte
and see if there is:
Carmina Onorati who died in 1872
Maria Giovanna Amico who died in 1886

I would greatly appreciate a scan or any help so I don't have to re-get the microfilm here.

Thank you very much,
- Will

Thanks! Looks like I had the wrong date for Maria Amico; she was born around 1800 and was a grandmother when she died so this probably isn't the right person LOL. This is the correct Carmina Onorati though :) Could you check if there is a Maria Amico in the death record for 1887?

Oh man I'm so sorry, I think I wrote it down wrong. I had 2 dates to check and I thought it was 1886 or 1887 but it was either 1886 or *1877*. I don't know who her parents were but it should say she was married to Giuseppe Beneventi and that she was a farmer.

Sorry again, could you try 1877 when you get a chance? My note here says to try index 21. I would really appreciate it.

Thank you for the research :)

Wow I'm out of ideas now. I really appreciate you checking on it. That's 3 different Maria Giovanna Amico's who all died as a baby in a town with only a few hundred people in it at the time; very strange. The only other information I have about her death is that it was before 1907. Very perplexing.

This means that her husband Giuseppe Beneventi must have died 1889; that's the only one in the notes I wrote down that had his father as Pasquale. Could you see if 1889 index 49 is the Giuseppe Beneventi who was widowed by Maria Giovanna Amico?

Thank you very much,
- Will
