I am looking for LARIZZA

Postby sarahlarizza4 » 28 Jan 2015, 09:13

My great great grandfather is Rocco Larizza born between 1860's to 1880's
had 5 children Giuseppina, Cosimo, Francesco, Vincenzo, Domenico, Antonia
my great grandfather Domenico Larizza born 1903 death 1964 or 1965 married Francesca
Domenico had 9 children 2 who moved to live in Adelaide Australia Rocco and Antonino. Antonino is my nonno born 1930's married concetta barone 1 of Domenico's son brother to antonino married the sister of Concetta barone

Rocco Larizza 3 sons went to WW1 want to find info on that too.

Rocco moved to America with his family his wife passed so he moved back to italy and got remarried had one daughter Antonia with his new wife.

I think one or two of his children stayed in America.

They were from Sant'Eufemia calabria and settle in Sinopoli calabria. Rocco Larizza went to the USA his first wife passed so he moved back to Calabria but apparently one or two of his children stayed in USA . He had a son that went to war and the family thought he had passed so they had a service for him when he returned back to his home town after so long someone saw him and told him your family thought you were dead etc etc so he turned and walked away never to be seen again.
Our Family is in Adelaide South Australia
There is a Larizza family in Melbourne Victoria Australia who we believe could be relatives as they say the same story my father inlaw tells about family history but we cant pin point where...

This MIGHT be your GGGF travel:

and here

is Ellis Island Manifest for the travel of one Cosmo Larizza from Sant'Eufemia, 16 yo in 1910, going to join brother Francesco. Unfortunately, I have some trouble with the site, so I can't see its first page.
