Eduardao Lanza (b. 27 Nov 1868)

Postby claudinew » 08 Mar 2011, 19:14

I was wondering if anyone knows of the Lanza family? My great great grandfather was Eduardo Lanza, born 27 Nov 1868 in Spezzano Piccola, Calabria. His father was listed as Michele on a U.S. passport application.

Does anyone know anything about this family - older generations, siblings, etc?

Grazie,

Claudine

Hi Claudine,

you can check this italian site:

http://poster.beniculturali.it/poster/action.do

regarding Eduardo you can find the record of the military concscription:

Codice SIAS IT-ASCS-F680258
Ufficio Leva della Provincia di Cosenza, Liste di Leva della classe 1868.
Registro numero 93,
atto numero - di pagina 229 sezione -
Eduardo Lanza, iscritto il --/--/----
nato il 27/11/1868 a SPEZZANO PICCOLO
da - - e da - -
Note generali:
Paternità NN Maternità NN

Looks like his parents were unknown... Do you know if Michele was his adoptive father?

Thank you Laura! I have a US Passport Application for Eduardo from 1925, after he had already become a US citizen. It lists his father as Michele, deceased, born in Italy. Since the birthdates match up, I'm sure its the same Eduardo. Its interesting that he doesn't list his parents names on the military document.

Thank you for sharing the website. I will definitely use it for other fmaily members as well.
