Family Info

Postby Paronetto » 11 Jul 2006, 21:04

Well, My last name is paronett, he changed from Paronetto when my great great grandfather came to america, he couldn't get a job, so he dropped the O. My grandfather has tried searching for stuff online, and says he came up with nothing.
Great great grandfathers name was josepe(sp?) paronetto, his wife's maiden name was remilda Coda.

IF anyone can point me in the right direction Id greatly appreciate it.

Wow - one of the first time I found someone in the WWII draft card records! Looks like Joseph was born in Argentina. See his record below:

If I had to hazard a guess for birth location, I'd start with Ponzano Veneto, in the Province of Treviso.

I found only four Paronetto immigrants in the Ellis Island database (not this Giuseppe, though) and one in Ancestry.com, and all claim either the province of Treviso or the towns Ponzano/Paderno as their home. With only 2,400 inhabitants in 1880, searching out the birth record should be quick work.

I don't think that the LDS has microfilms of this towns civil records, but the local parish might have baptismal records.

Yes, Ponzano Veneto is just 29 miles from Venice.

Surname meanings are often a wild guess. "etta" is a common diminutive (meaning "little"), but the root could mean many things.

It might derive from Pero or Pietro, meaning "Little Peter".

It might derive from the Catalan "pere", meaning "Little Pear Tree".

Maybe a very distant ancestor came from Perona, Italy.

Could also mean "Paron" padrone (master) in venetian language.
There are a few Paronetto in Vittorio Veneto, too. They were my childness friends, but it is a few year that I don't see them anymore.

How would I go about getting an address for those people?
thanks
