Are you referring to the province of Trieste or the city of Trieste in the province of Trieste?

Could you provide additional information on them? Birth years? When they came to US? Where they settled? Names & birth years of children?

Also, what records do you have for them? Census? Ship manifest? Birth certificates? Death certificates?.....So we don't duplicate records.

What are your research goals.

Hope to hear from you.

the valintine marincich you found is my great uncleand the other lady I have no idea of but I appreciate the research. My great aunt mary all she knew was trieste and nothing else which is sad. My family is not very big on history thats what I want my children to have so there is no questions to our history.

I'm working on linking images for the censuses and WWI draft card provided by vj.

As usual, Valarie did a great job in finding these records.

Great work Vj.... :D :D :D
I missed that one on the 1920, and I used first name only for the search...........(are you getting multiple states when you use ancestry, even tho' you enter a specific state????)

I need to put you to work on my Nonno's elusive draft record!!!!!! :wink:

So Valentine's parents were not Italian.......but he married an Italian!!!
