Need Help with Mystery Ancestor

Postby Lainey » 27 Jun 2015, 18:01

This is really more for my cousin than for me, although I'm curious, too. I recently connected with a cousin on my Italian side. We are related through my grandpa's mother, Pasqualina Calvelli Petrone. She was his great-grandfather's sister. His great-grandfather's name was Francesco Calvelli. If it helps, they also had a brother named Camillo Calvelli. Their father's name was Luigi; unsure of mother's name.

Anyway, he told me that Francesco came to the US (New York, I believe) in 1903, and was never heard from again. My cousin believes that he started a new family in America. He would like to know what happened to him, and now that I know, so would I! Any help would be appreciated.

When and where was he born? Without at least an approximate birth year, it will be impossible to narrow down search results.

Sorry, he was born in Aprigliano...so Tessa, that first one looks like it might be promising! I get confused because I think he had a son named Francesco. So that first one might be his son.

I will see if I can get my cousin to come here and take a look. Thanks!

Hmmm, I linked my cousin to this thread and he said he made a post. I've been waiting for it to show up but nothing so far.
