Speranza, they have to be related. I can`t wait to see where this lead will take us all. VJ, somehow I know your wheels are turning.
My husband I were just saying about how wonderful people on this forum have been to me. It`s overwhelming.
vj,you are always surprising me with things. Yor are now bringing life to my childhood memories that I do have and experienced.I grew up in Cramer Hill and many times had to get dad out of the bars up and down the road.lol.My schools are listed and cresent bottling where we bought the best creme soda around.I remember him being a barber. I think mom said we have someone that is or was big in the church in Philadelphia who also was a Beviacqua.
Camden growing up was great but now it`s getto and murder capitol.How very sad. I still have my memories and thank you for refreshing them.
Helen, that looks like it was a great town to grow up in.
I really enjoyed the pictures on the website. Looks like
it's still a very active site!
If your mom is referring to Cardinal Bevilacqua, you
will find an awful lot about him on google Valarie
He has quite a story...
"Anthony Joseph Cardinal Bevilacqua Function: Archbishop Emeritus of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA Title: Cardinal Priest of SS Redentore e S Alfonso in via Merulana Birthdate: Jun 17, 1923 Country: USA Elevated: Jun 28, 1991"
" Bevilacqua grew up poor, the ninth of 11 children born to Italian immigrants, in Queens, N.Y. (His father was a mason, but couldn't find work in his trade, so he worked in a patchwork of jobs.) Inspired by a priest who was a German immigrant, Bevilacqua went on to care deeply about immigrant needs and rights "
probably a distant relation?
" His father, Luigi Bevilacqua, was born 12 April 1884 at Spinazzola, in Puglia near Bari; his mother, Maria Giuseppina Codella, at Calitri, in the province of Avellino "
Valerie, thanks for the link on how to do google seach.I never knew how.I`m learning alot on this forum. Had a lot on him to read. I`m not sure I want to be related to him. I`m sure every family has people they don`t want to claim.lol. Wait till I tell mom.

The more we get into this the harder it gets and getting confusing to me.Then again I`m in alot of pain today.Just had surgery two weeks ago and been on my feet way to much today trying to pack for my trip to see mom tommorow. I will be checking in and staying in touch while I`m there. You guys have become my friends. Thanks for all your help in my journey back.
I finally had a chance to really look at this in detail. I see they had her destination as 1133 CUPER st. Which was really Cooper Street.They had it as Kensinton N.Y. but it really was Camden N.J.,Also it took 10 days to get to N.Y.,that is so kool. Thanks for finding that nuccia.
I'm trying to find another way to send you that info I tried to send earlier. My son needs the computer for homework now but I will send it either through imageshack or upload. Not sure if the site expires tonight or tomorrow though..
Nuccia, please don`t feel sorry. I`m new to the computer world and maybe I`m not looking in the right spot. I wrote down the instrutions to follow and still had problems. I don`t want you feeling bad if I can`t excess the site. You have been more than generous with all your help.I will forever be grateful.
