ARGENTINA IMMIGRATION FROM ITALY?

Postby da42na » 24 Jan 2006, 03:37

Hello,

does anyone know if there is any way to research Immigration to Argentina like the Ellis Island resource...which is awesome! My Grandfather ,Luigi Fortuna form Monteleone(VV), immigrated to the US in 1905, but his family ended up in Argentina...... It seems like whever you get on the internet you have to buy something from Ancestry.com, do they own all rights to everything?...LOL..... My lineage also includes Meddis/LoSciavo,Labella/Procopio from Stefanoconi/Monteleone/VV area

thanks,

David Fortuna

Hi Trish,

You said that you have the name Procopio in your family. I am looking for relatives of Giuseppe Procopio. He was born in the 1890's and died in 1970's somewhere in the state of Pensylvania. I know that he had a grand child who was born in 1959 or 1960. Can you help me find these long lost relatives of mine. I am from Montreal.

thanks,

Andy

Hi Trish,

Do the Birth acts for Giuseppe parretta have the names of his parents. I know his mother's name was Rosina. Also, how can I obtain his marriage certificate from the united states?

Thnanks,

Andy

Hi Andy,

I would have to look at the films to see what Giuseppe Procopio was born who had a mother named Rosina (possibly Rosaria too).

I'll let you know if I find anything.

****

About the Marriage Record, where do you think he got married? If you know the State, then you would write to the County that you think he was married in.

I hope this helps.
