Sauro Surname

Postby amdamore » 04 Sep 2011, 18:49

I am trying to locate the town from which my brother-in-law's family came. His grandmother's maiden name was Maria Antonia Sauro and she was born about 1873 to Leonardo Sauro and Maria Pasquale. A contact has not found her in the Ripabottoni or Casacalenda records. I think the next most likely place is the commune of Campobasso. If anyone has access to these films, I would appreciate a quick check to see if that is the correct commune.

Thank you,
Ann D'Amore

On the 1900 census she's listed as Antonia:

I believe this may have been her 1894 arrival in the U.S.

21 february 1894

Sauro Antonia, age 21, female, native country Ripabottoni, last residence in Italy Ripabottoni..

http://www.ellisisland.org/EIFile/popup ... &line=0530

So, Ripabottoni seems really the correct birth place... I would advice you to search by yourself in the Mormon's microfilmed vital records of the town of Ripabottoni (starting from 1870):

Registri dello stato civile di Ripabottoni (Campobasso), 1809-1900

authors: Ripabottoni (Campobasso). Ufficio dello stato civile, (Main Author)
format: Manuscript/On Film
language: Italian

Nati 1866-1874 (Births 1866-1874) FHL INTL Film 1810849
Nati 1875-1884 (Births 1875-1884) FHL INTL Film 1810850

this is the actual spread of the lastname Sauro in Molise region:

as you can see Ripabottoni is the first town.

Good luck!

Thank you for all that you have sent. I was aware of most of it, but had not found them in the 1900 RI Census - that is a real find and does give me some clues.

I cannot confirm that Maria Pasquale Sauro is my Maria Antonia's mother, but it certainly sounds like she is. When I am next in Rhode Island, I hope to get her death certificate and visit St. Ann's Cemetary to see if she is burried with any family and who bought the grave.

Thank you again for all you sent.

Ann
