looking for info on the Lora family from Novale

Postby justkim » 22 Apr 2014, 00:58

Hi,
Am trying to research my husband's grandfather's family:

Addone or Arthur Lora b 1903-1992

His parents names are:
Antonio Lora 1866-
Amalia Danielli 1873-

They arrived in New York in 1907 and settled in Woonsocket, RI. I can find information about them on ship manifests, census, etc. but not much prior to their arrival or about Antonio or Amalia's parents/families. Would appreciate any information or suggestions.

Thanks,
Kim

Your Topic Title states that the Lora family came from Novale...

Which of these villages named Novale?

Novale, comune of Laion, Bolzano, Trentino-Alto Adige
Novale, comune of San Martino in Passiria, Bolzano, Trentino-Alto Adige
Novale, comune of Valdagno, Vicenza, Veneto
Novale di Dentro, comune of Cornedo All'isarco, Bolzano, Trentino-Alto Adige
Novale di Fuori, comune of Cornedo All'isarco, Bolzano, Trentino-Alto Adige
Novale di Presule, comune of Fie' Allo Sciliar, Bolzano, Trentino-Alto Adige
Novale di Val d'Ega, comune of Nova Ponente, Bolzano, Trentino-Alto Adige

EDIT TO ADD:
On the ship manifest for Amalia Danieli and her 5 chidren - the town is identified as Novale, Vicenza ---- so I believe it is Novale, a hamlet of the Comune of Valdagno, Province of Vicenza in Veneto Region...

There are no online records available (that I am aware of) for Novale...
BUT - you can rent and view the microfilmed records (1809-1900) at your nearest LDS Family History Center.

AND - you can write directly to the Comune of Valdagno, of which Novale is a frazione(hamlet), to request Addone's birth record.

Address:
Ufficio dello Stato Civile
Piazza del Comune, 8
36078 Valdagno (VI)
