Good morning, Suanj.

You are really great!!! I am very happy with your support. You can not imagine how beautiful is to me discover about my ancestors.

I have tried more clues about Maria Torrano, but has bern hard. Was easer find his parents birth towns. It was unbelievable!

Very nice to know Gennaro' full name and his parents names as well. Thank you!

Any clue about her mother, Giuseppina Vita?

Probably Maria Torrano was born in one of the small cities among that two regions.

Will not be easy, but I really desire complete my genealogy tree finding Maria Torrano.

Thank you for share with me your knowledge!!!

Best wishes.

I am also searching for Torranos--Giuseppina and Rosina (or Rosa)--and I find Verbicaro records contain many Maria Torranos.

Go here: https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1 ... cc=2043464
These records are not indexed; you will have to search through each one.
Researching surnames Capaccio and Cerruti in Campagna, Salerno; surnames Crescenzo and Ferullo (unknown locations); surnames Nocito and Torrano in Cosenza; surnames Crescenzo and Pinto in Casalicchio (Casal Velino), Salerno.

Usually you can find an index at the end of each year. For instance this is the index for 1871: https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1 ... cc=2043464

Crescenzo and Moreno, thank you for the information and help.

Suanj, thank you a lot for you search.

When Maria Torrano got merriege, their parents Gennaro and Giuseppina were alive and I found in his married records that information: Gennaro was from Diamante, as you confirmed, and Giuseppina was from Tramutola.

It was very strange, because there are no information about the bride, so I can not understand why they didn´t wrote nothing about the city of birth of Maria Torrano.

I have tried different docs and contacts in Brazil, but they just tell that the Torrano family went from Diamante, and have no more information about Giuseppina Vita, just that she was from Tramutola, nothing more than it, unfortunately.

Could them gor meeried in Diamante and not in Tramutola?

I searched also in Diamante, from 1882 to back and forth... no marriage record no marriage transcription... I don't found but maybe I am wrong... you have the immigration record? I cannot find it... It could be possible that they marriued in Brasil and Maria was born in Brasil?
I cannot find nothing abt Maria...

Hi Suanj,

This is really strange, cause I found the information about that she was born in Italy in her marrieage record, and looks anormal that they wrote the city of bith of her parents and didn´t include the name of her own city of bith, just Italy.

Anyway, I tryied a birth information in Brazil as well, in the small city where MAria Torrano got marriege and were born all her 11 children. I could find my grandfather´s birth records in that small city (Casa Branca), but nothing about Maria Torrano´s birth record.

She got marrieged in 1897 and, according with the records, she was just 15 years old, so, was born in 1882.

So, I could find some Marias Torrano´s immigration records in Brazil, but shows that, when arrived, in 1884, one Maria Torrano was 8 years old (born 1876) and another one was 14 years old (born in 1870). This two Marias arrived together with Filomena, who was 40 years old, so I guess their mother. So, surely they are not the one who we are looking for.

In Brazil Gennaro Torrano became Janoario Torrano, and Giuseppina Vita became Josephina Vita. I have tried their names in immigrations records as well, but could find nothing so far.

I found a comunity in FACEBOOK about Torrano´s family in Brazil. No one know about Maria Torrano, neither about Gennaro (Janoario) as well, but have confirmed to me that Torrano came from Diamante, Calabria. Their parents in Brazil were from another city than Casa Branca.

I keep trying any clue to help you to help me, Suanj, cause I know how great you are in this kind of searching. Please, don´t give up!

Have a nice weekend and thank you a lot for your help so far.

Daniel yes I agree that Gennaro Torrano (Gennaro Salvatore Torrano) was born in Diamante, I found his army enlistment, but the problem that I cannot find the his marriage as a well the birth of his daughter.. I searched so much and I don't found... Abt Giuseppina Vita are several persons with this name, and however in Tramutola I don't found any marriage record... I searched until 1897... so, or they don't was married or who know..

Hi Suanj,

Yes, you did a very nice search when discover about Gennaro Torrano and I am sure you have tried hard to find Maria Torrano.

Really strange have no the marrieged records. I have no clue about Gennaro, Giuseppina and Maria Torrano in Brazil, cause no one who I have talked about knows nothing about them.

In the civil records, I have just the Maria Torrano´s marrieged record, no "porcesso de casamento", neither her parents death records in Brazil.

Worse than it, I have no found any clue about their imigration records.

But, if Maria Torrano was born in 1882 as shows her marriege records, probably she was born really in Italy.

Maybe her parents was not marrieged, but she made her marrieged celebration in her father´s house, so she came to Brazil with him.

I will keep trying find some more informations.

Thank you for all you effort as well.
