Hello,
Maria Mazzoni and Primo Gherardi come from Coranite (?), but they were born in the town of Ferrara.

Augusta Pellizzari was also from the town of Ferrara (volounteer made a mistake transcribing Turara, there is not place named like that in Italy)

So if you would like to receive more informations about these people, like right place of birth, date of birth, name of parents you can write, in Italian, requesting their birth certificate (estratto per riassunto dell'atto di nascita) and marriage certificate (estratto per riassunto dell'atto di matrimonio) to:

Comune
Ufficio di Stato Civile
Piazza Municipale 2
44100 Ferrara - Italy

or just an integral copy of birth record (copia integrale dell'atto di nascita) or integral copy of marriage record (copia integrale dell'atto di matrimonio).

The Italian written request has to be sent via ordinary mail, add to the request a self-addressed envelope + international reply coupon + copy of your ID

The integral copies can be also requested to

http://www.archivi.beniculturali.it/UCB ... me=FERRARA

I hope it helps,
bye Riccardo :lol: :lol: :lol:

In the ship manifest of Gherardi (see Wldspirit post above) the indication is for Coccanile which is a hamlet of Copparo in the province of Ferrara. I think Coranite is actually Coccanile. Some info on Coccanile are here in Italian. The official website of Copparo is here.
Good luck
Marco

Thanks All

This is the correct family and all of the info listed covers the USA portion.

I'm actually looking for the the family of Augusta, Giovanni, and Maria that remained in Italy. Did they have brothers and sisters? WHo were the parents and grand parents?

I'll try and find someone who can help me write a letter in Italian so I can correspond.

Thanks Again

I see references to LDS tapes that people can send for.

Can someone please explain what the tapes contain and how I find out if information is available on them that may help in my search.

I'm really new at this.
