Family name of LAURIA from Potenza

Postby egrbvr » 17 May 2011, 19:36

Great grandfather was Rocco Luigi Lauria (born 1840's)... emigrated to America around 1880 but returned to Italy several years later. Does this sound familiar to ANYONE? I don't know which area within Potenza.

Do you by chance have the name of his wife and children? I have seen Lauria name in records of Potenza but without the names of other relatives it's difficult to find those pertaining to him. Thank you!

Yes, I found this info too and believe this is my great grandfather. Unfortunately, there are NO living relatives who ever knew his wife's name nor did I ever hear my dad speak of it. His son, my grandfather, George, was born 5-15-1881 but sadly, no one ever spoke of OTHER children by name. I am just hoping that there is something that can tie this together lacking other dates and names.

Here is your grandfather George's (Giorgio's) birth record from Anzi,Potenza in 1881. His father Rocco Luigi and it appears that his mother's name was Domenica Maria Ciani BUT someone here fluent in reading these documents will need to translate this for you further. I can't read Italian, only bits and pieces of the documents Hope this makes your day! :mrgreen:

I believe this to be the Marriage Bann (Announcement) of Rocco Luigi Lauria and Domenica Maria Ciani from 1866. It will need translating...still searching for death reords. Keeping fingers crossed! :)

Thanks T, I love mining for records! :mrgreen:

Hey Tessa do you mind translating this death record before I keep searching? It's for Rocco Lauria and the age appears to be right if the one I'm searching for was born in the 1840's, but I see no mention of his wife Domenica Maria. Although it's possible she had already passed by 1886 herself. Just let me know when you get a chance so that I know if we have a match here or not. Thank you!!

This record is for a Rocco Lauria, age 46, peasant farmer; and son of Michele and of Rosa Zita... Record date is 6 October 1886

I just translated the marriage banns and Rocco's parents are Salvatore and Maria Benedetto.

Sooo...not the right Rocco yet! :-)
