Searching for my great grandparents Francesco and Maria (nee Dezan) Bettarelli

Postby Christinaherbert » 01 Jun 2015, 06:14

Hello! My great grandparents came from Vittorio Veneto in Italy about 1900. I can't find any record of them in Italy. Where should I start?

If this is the family you are looking for:

https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.3.1/T ... cc=2000219

https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:X79G-H1C

This MIGHT be you Francesco

https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.3.1/T ... cc=1861144

https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:VPWV-N2C

So, the correct spelling should be Bettarel (from region Veneto, while Bettarelli seems to be from Marche)

From this is the Ellis island manifest

it seems that Maria de Zan and son Giovanni Bettorel (this might be a mistake) were from Fregona, province of Treviso.

Yes, you are correct! This is my great-grandmother and her first born son, Giovanni. They went to ft thunder, Canada following Francesco and then the entire family went to Detroit, Michigan (USA). I can't find marriage or birth records in Italy. I only know that Maria's maiden name was Dezan, but I can't locate her parents...perhaps they are from fregona as well. My mother always said they we're proud to be from Vittorio veneto...would that make sense if they were from fregona?

Also, it does not seem that these records exist electronically...is that a fair assumption?

Thank you all for your help! I have a couple questions:

Marty, how did you find the military records? I can't figure out how to search on that site...

I am going to Fregona in a couple of weeks. Any suggestions to help me find records while there?

Mille grazie!
