Maria Giovanna Tosi - help tracing life forward

Postby 120camden » 09 Sep 2014, 16:50

I have received a birth record from the comune in Italy for my Great Grandmother and hoping to trace her life forward from this information before 1920. In Nov 1920, if this is the same person, she came to US with Armand Lagneau through Ellis Island under the name Jeanne. Her obituary from Kokomo, IN lists her as Joan, but gave her birth information, which I then wrote and requested. At some time I believe she was in Argentine South America.
Thank you.


Born: 12/28/1873 in Sartirana Lomellina (Italy)

There are 1500 population in Sartirana Lomellina (PV) 27 people surnamed Tosi in the telephone directory with names,addresses and telephone numbers at http://www.paginebianche.com if you happen to know the names of any relatives. If not then ask the Anagrafe people (Census) if they have any record of her returning to Satriana Lomellina after 1920 in their census statistics as one way to determine if she returned home at any period after 1920?

Whe Maria went to Argentina she stayed with her sister. Do you happen to know her sisters name? and perhaps you might want to locate that sister in Argentina. Peter

I sent an email in Italian to an address of Sartriana (found Googling the comune) asking for any census information. Hopefully someone will respond with help or ideas where to look.
Thanks for helping.

My Great Grandmother called Giovanna Maria Tosi who arrived in Brazil in 1911. Coincidence ...
