Buono Family, Jose Buono - Victoria Rennis - 1850's

Postby chrismol » 15 Apr 2012, 20:16

Hello, I am trying to trace our family's genealogy and am stuck. My great grandmother was Victoria Buono. Her father is Jose Buono and her mother Irene Rennis. Victoria was born in Distrito Federal, Argentina, on 6 November 1884, and we believe her mom and dad came from Italy but I have no data on where or when they were born or married. If anyone could help me with some resources where I can go search, that'd be great. I don't mind paying for a website as long as it is a good service, but there's a lot of ads for paid services and I don't know which ones are serious and which are not.

If this record is correct then you can be sure that they were born in Italy, this is the baptism act for another daughter, Paulina on 1909:

Possible arrival record for Irene Rennis?

from the site:
http://www.cemla.com/busqueda.php#

RENNIS, IRENE

Religion: CATOLICA
Nacionalidad: ITALIANA
Barco: NORD AMERICA
Procedencia: GENOVA
Fecha de arribo/Puerto: 02/04/1882 - BUENOS AIRES

The lastaname Rennis is pretty rare an it comes from Calabria region, especially from the Cosenza Province...

I checked this site and found several records for Irene Rennis born around 1862/1863 in Lungro :

I can confirm now taht your ancestors were coming really from Lungro - Cosenza Province - Calabria region...

This is your great-grandmother baptism act:

Baptism act number 47 - Year 1885 - Church of Nuestra Senora of Montserrat - Buenos Aires
for Victoria Buono, who was baptized on the day 18 january 1885, she was born on 6 november 1884, daughter of Josè (Giuseppe in italian) Buono, age 33, from Lungro, Cosenza and of his wife Irene Renes age 20 from Lungro, Cosenza

Your g-greatgrandparents (Victoria's parents) were married in the same church were Victoria was baptized in Buenos Aires:

Marriage Act number 14 - Year 1884

Groom: Josè Buono, age 28, born in Lungro, Cosenza Province, single, son of Nicolas and Vittoria Vecchio

Bride: Irene Renes, age 22, single, born in Lungro, daughter of Domenico and Anna Baccaro (possibly the correct spell is Vaccaro)

Marriage date: 7 february 1884

next page for the witnesses names, the female was Laura Renis, possibly a sister?

Considering the marriage act's informations then I think this birth record is correct for Irene:

Codice SIAS IT-ASCS-F680766

Registro numero 55, atto numero 37 di pagina -
Irene Rennis nato/a il 09/02/1863

Thank you so much to all that replied!!! This truly does seem to be my family. Now I need to look through all of these materials and see if I can learn more about how to find this type of information myself. You guys have some awesome data from sources that I had actually looked at, and had yielded no results for me. Thank you again!!! Christian.
