Search in Naples

Postby casolari » 09 Dec 2014, 20:04

Hi,

I'm looking for information on my great-great-grandfather, Felice Casolari, who was born in Naples and immigrated to Brazil in June/July 1896. He was approximately 45 years old at the time, so he would have been born around 1848-1852. He went with his wife Rafaella Riccia, and their two sons Vincenzo and Rafaelle.

I know he was born in Naples, but I don't know if it was the city or the province of Naples. I've got the names of the parents of both Felice Casolari and Rafaella Riccia.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks!

You might try requesting his passport file from the Naples archives. It would specify which town or section of Naples he was from.

Tessa78 thanks very much! Vincenzo is Felice's son, and he immigrated to Brazil with Felice. I've been searching for more records pertaining to Felice but haven't found them yet. Regardless, thanks again for your help.

Italysearcher, thanks for the note. Do you know how I can request his passport file? I do have Felice Casolari's passport number from one of the Brazilian immigration records.
