Marchese/Collia

Postby Patrizzia » 30 Jun 2014, 21:43

Hi there I am searching for great great grandparents and beyond. My grandfather, Francesco Marchese (San Lucido, Cosenza), married Cristina Collia (Bianci, Cozenza). I have been going mad trying to find information on them and their parents.

Anyone know anything about them?

They were both born in 1911 and came to America in the 1960's. Francesco's father was named Michele Marchese, and according to my grandfather he had 32 kids with 3 or 4 wives. Cristina's mother was Gaetana Gualtieri and her father was Antonio Collia.

Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Thank You

Yes, Francesco is my grandfather.

I have found a third cousin of Salvatore. I am trying to validate the first document you supplied. If it is him, thenI can maybe find more through him.

Thanks so much for helping. :)
