I am tracing my Galluzzi(Galluzzo) ancestry and my second great-grandmother's name is Roselina (I have also seen it spelled Rosolina or Rose Lina. Her maiden name is Botta and she was born in Fuscaldo, Cosenza, Calabria in 1853. I have searched on FamilySearch.org and I could not find any record of her birth or marriage to Sabato Galluzzo. I did find her passenger record on EllisIsland.org and it says that before she left Italy she lived in Acerno. She had 7 children whose names are Antonio, Dominic, Raffaele (he stayed in Italy), Rocco, Carmela, Luigi (Louis- my great-grandfather), and Giovanni. She died in Brockway, Pennsylvania on November 22, 1928. Any information about her would be helpful because I barely have anything; I would like to find out who her parents were. Thanks everyone.
Instead of searching on Familysearch.org go to the LIBRARY catalog and do a place search. Then order the microfilms and view tham at your closet Family History centre. Translations can be found on my website along with tips on searching the films (under Italian research).
Tcrawford, I have some Galluzzi distant relatives in Brockway. I believe that my great-grandfather Samuel Galluzzi of Chicago, IL was related to Louis somehow. The names of Samuel's parents were Antonietta-Marie and Antonio Galluzzi. I was told they were from San Giorgio in the Salerno region. Perhaps the 'Castel' was left off. If so, I know that both Samuel and 'Uncle Louie' as my grandmother called him, both married Gregorio girls. I think that Louis may have been Samuel's uncle. Did this Louis marry Mary Gregorio? I know that Mary was born in Laurino and moved to the Pennsylvania as a small child. I don't know much about the Galluzzi line of the family and no one really does. I would like to learn more. This Roselina may be my great-great-great grandmother if the same Antonio in your list is my great-great grandfather.
My great-grandfather Louis did marry Mary Gregorio and Louis did have a brother Antonio. I have been in contact with a man who is Raffaele's great-grandson. He lives in England and he said that Antonio was the first of the family to travel to the United States and he called for the rest of the family to come over. It would be really great to get some information about Antonio! Do you know anything about Roselina? I have been searching a long time for records about her, but it's like there aren't any. Can't wait to hear from you!
I don't really know if these people are part of my family. My great great-grandfather Sabato's parents were Antonio Galluzzo and Giovanna Zambrano both born in 1820. That is all the information I have.
After all this time, I am still trying to find out more information about my great great-grandmother Rosalina Botta. I have used Cosenza Archive website and familysearch.org; all the searches I have done on both sites with different spellings of her first name and last name have produced zero results. I am hoping that someone on here could help me out and find at least a birth record for her to find out who her parents were.
Here is her information: Born: July 1852 in Fuscaldo, Cosenza, Calabria, Italy Married: Sabato Galluzzo in 1877 Immigrated to the United States: either 1904 or 1905 Children: Antonio Galluzzo Dominic Galluzzi Rocco Galluzzi Samuel Galluzzi Raffaele Galluzzi (Stayed in Italy) Carmina Galluzzo Louis (Luigi) Galluzzi Giovanni Galluzzi **After immigrating to the United States their last name Galluzzo changed to Galluzzi that is why some have an o and some have an i at the end.
