Researching Russo

Postby frankdamore » 04 Aug 2016, 23:26

Thanks again for the help, T and everyone.

So, the last evasive group of my ancesters is one that I actually remember. Odd how finding information for them is so difficult.

I have been trying to find additional brothers/sisters and grand-parents of my great-grandmother.

Here's what I have:

* Orazia Russo (Grace) - born 3-2-1894 in Fiumefreddo. I have the birth record ( https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1 ... cc=2043496 ) and know that she was baptized on 3-11-1894 in (Parish) Maria SS di Fiumefreddo. Immigrated to Youngstown. Ohio. I have all of those records also. (Attached marriage record also)

*Brother Rosario Russo born in 1885
I only have his marriage record (http://interactive.ancestry.com/2995/40 ... sePUB=true)

* Know 100% her parents are Ignazio Russo and Calogera Belfiore
* Had additional brothers/sisters and the rest passed away (one brother was named Antonio)
* Some relatives say Rosario, Ignazio, and Calogera immigrated to Austrailia (haven't found any records)

If anyone has any advice or expertise to share, please do! Thank you.

Thank you, Marty.

Is line #32 my great grandmother (Grace / Orazia)? Unfortunately, I cannot read Italian.

Line 83 possibly another relative?

Any tips on how to search on parents (Ignazio and Calogera)?

Looking through these records, there are so many Barbagallos (cousins), DiBartolos, and Belfiores. I cannot link the Belfiores yet however.

You can look for a marriage record for Ignazio Russo and Calogera Belfiore in the same set of records Marty identified. That may provide more clues for their birth records.

Battesimi 1762-1910, 1905-1908 -- Matrimoni 1763-1910 -- Morti 1738-1788

Also, for further reference:

Morti 1788-1831, 1834-1910 -- Cresime 1877-1910 -- Processetti 1873-1890
