Novello & Volpato

Postby aussiemight » 13 Apr 2011, 23:03

Hi everyone,

I'm new to this forum and to genealogy research, so any help will be most appreciated.

I am trying to find any information on my father's side of the family Leon Solomon Novello.

His fathers name was Valentino Luigi Novello and he states he was born in Schiavon, Provence di Vincenza, Italy. Valentino came to Australia on the 20 Jan 1926 on the (I think) Ro or Re D'Italia. His birth date is 2 Dec 1904. His parents were Antonio Novello & Anna Volpato. Antonio was born 28 May 1878 & died 29 Apr 1959, Anna was born 15 May 1880 and died 24 Nov 1949. The places where either Antonio or Anna were born or died is not known.

Thank you very mcuh for any assistance.

Sandra

Hi Sandra,

Have you checked this site?

http://www.naa.gov.au/collection/record ... index.aspx

there is a special dossier on Valentino Luigi Novello being a war prisoner:

http://recordsearch.naa.gov.au/SearchNR ... de=9909292

looks like his father was listed as Antonio Novello and place in Italy is Peveranza di Cairate - Varese Province - Lombardia region. Same place for his mother Anna, don't know if it was their birth palce but for sure it was their residence at the time of these documents (1940) so possibly they died there...
