Looking for Ungari

Postby forestmaiden71 » 08 Sep 2015, 18:42

Hello! Thanks to some of the research help I've received on here, I was able to connect with some family in Italy who gave me all sorts of great information (through rough google translate, lol). However, I'd love some help with these names. Nothing is known of them, except names and their parents. Any help would be great!
Names:
Beatrice Ungari
Grazia Ungari
Maria Ungari
Rosa Ungari

Parents:
Raffaele Ungari
Rocca Maria Leuzzi
They were married in 1883

From: (probably born) Valenzano, Bari, Puglia, Italy

I do know Beatrice Ungari had a son by the name of Giuseppe. I have his photo. So I believe Beatrice, at least, got married. For Giuseppe -My relatives in Italy tell me that he died in WWII. Is there any way to trace this? I don't have a last name...but I know what kind of unit he was in.

Thanks so much for any help! It's VERY appreciated!

Thank you SOOO very much! This helps a lot! I'm wondering - the little note on the bottom of Grazia's birth - is that a note as to when she died?

Yes. Grazia Ungari died 11 February 1977 in Valenzano.

Have checked births 1883 - 1897 and have not found Beatrice.
Since that was Raffaele's mother's name I would have expected it in earliest females in family.

Here is another child born to the couple. Francesco was born in 1893
Record #84
Dated 2 June 1893, birth on 31 May
Father: Raffaele Ungari [son of deceased Giuseppe]. He is now 33.
Mother: Rocca Maria Liuzzi (that is how it is spelled on this record)
Child given the name FRANCESCO

AND = Nicolantonio born in 1896
Record #39
Dated 9 March 1896 - birth on 7 March 1896
Notation in margin of death of Nicolantonio Ungari on 17 February 1972 (Act #6 in Parte I)
http://www.antenati.san.beniculturali.i ... ewsIndex=0

A DAUGHTER - Domenica - in 1899
Record #94
Dated 4 June 1899 - birth on 3 June

Thanks so much for your help! :D You are amazingly helpful!

Too bad couldn't find Maria or Beatrice...are there records that show births after 1900? I do know that they had 1 son born in 1902, for example.

Here is the birth of the son, Giovanni, born in 1902
Record #54
Dated 25 May 1902 - birth on 23 May 1902
Same parents... Raffaele Ungari and Rocca Leuzzi
https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.3.1/T ... 1015660001

Just a correction from a post above.... Beatrice is the first name of Rocca Maria's mother, not Raffaele's mother.
I will go back to the earlier records to search again.

Do you know the name of Beatrice's husband? OR the surname of her son Giuseppe???


EDIT TO ADD***

Here is the Publication of Banns of Marriage for Rosa Ungari and Vincenzo Cuscito in 1904
https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.3.1/T ... 1015663201

AND.. Publication of Banns for Grazia Ungari and Vincenzo De Mario on 24 December 1911
https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.3.1/T ... 1015682801
