Grossi in Monte san Biagio

Postby dwilkes » 07 Mar 2012, 01:36

Hi

I am having difficulty finding information about my great grandfather.

Pasquale(ino)Grossi.(1875-1938)Born in Monte san biagio,died in Toronto,Ontario,Canada.

His death certificate from toronto lists his parents names as Jennie Riale and Alexander

Grossi.I think Jennie is an englsih translation for Giovannina,as that was my great grandmothers first name and she went by Jennie.I also think that Alexander may be Alessandro.

I am hoping to find somewhere I might be able to confirm any of this information as well as expand on my families ancestry.

My great grandmother's last name may have been Bove or Bova.Her first name Giovannina.

She was a fair bit younger(born around 1896) than my great grandfather.

Any help will be appreciated

regards

Dean Wilkes

this is being talked about on a facebook group. Someone said that Monte is a section of Palermo. However, I know it is a section of another town in Sicily also.

If this 1913 arrival manifest is correct for your great-grandfather:

2 march 1913

Grossi Pasqualino, age 38, male, married from Monte San Biagio to Toronto, to join Pasqualino's cousin Iannone Federico, leaving in Italy his wife Concetta Bove, travelling with his daughter Giovannina age 17, single.
