Searching locations for Angela Rosa Brescia

Postby lcafarel » 27 Mar 2012, 03:05

I'm trying to locate the marriage record and birthplace of Angela Rosa Brescia who was born around 1806, married Vincenzo Mastronardi sometime in the 1820s and settled in Craco, Basilicata. Brescia is not found otherwise in Craco, so she must have moved there from elsewhere. Anyone recognize this name--from Potenza, perhaps?

Thanks.

At this address:
http://www.paginebianche.it/ricerca?qs=brescia&dv=pz
you can find a listing of people from province of Potenza with surname Brescia, and their addresses (Italian White Pages).
Of course, you can use it for any other search, by writing surname in the first field, and place in the second.

Thanks, Pippo. I already checked the Pagine Bianche for Basilicata and found results to be more geographically distant than most of the marriages I've seen for the period, but surely not impossible. There are one or two Brescias in Bernalda, and that may be my best bet. I also ran a search on Ancestry and spotted an unsourced private tree with Angela's name but no spouse, but the location given there is also quite distant; I've sent a query to the owner and am waiting to hear back. I posted here in case the names rang a bell with someone.
