Seeking information on grandfather Luigi Avoledo born Valvasone,Italy 1894 one known sibling male brother Battista. 10 other siblings names unknown. Married Maria Basso...Immigrated to Canada in 1923 approx. to Blairmore, Alberta..
Hi Carleen I have Avoledo family in Fernie. In 1928 Libera Avoledo immigrated to Canada from the village of Arzene (about 15 minutes north of Valvasone) to meet her husband Luigi Nosella. Luigi arrived in Canada in 1912 with his nearest relative listed as Angelo Avoledo; Brother-In-Law; in Frank, Alberta. Blairmore, Fernie and Frank were all mining town during that period with a tight Italian community.
Libera was the daughter of Vincenzo Avoledo and Caterina Del Net. According to her 1928 passport she was born in Arzene in 1888 so Luigi was probably a cousin not a brother unless the family moved from Arzene in 1888 to Valvasone by 1894.
