I'm trying to discover my own "family forest". I'm looking information about my ancestors: "Antonio Callegari" and "Anunciada -or Annunciata- Ghiglieri", both italians but don't know the place of birth. Antonio was born in Italy near 1844. Anunciada was born in Italy near 1847-1848. They came to Argentina and got married in Buenos Aires, church "Iglesia de la Piedad" on June 13th, 1874. Two specific persons were present during the marriage: "Maria Ghiglieri" and "Antonio Piccetti". They had 5 children: Domingo (Domenico), Jose, Antonio, Juan, and Benito Pedro Marcos. Antonio's parents were: Domingo Callegari and Angela Parmegiano. Anunciada's parents were: Benito Ghiglieri and Luisa Beronia.
I have the certificates of baptisms of her children, and the following names appears like friends of Antonio and Anunciada: Lorenzo Ghiglieri, Luisa Ghiglieri, Agustin Rossi, Luis Casanova, Catalina Baronia, Marcos de Paoli, Maria Ginocchio.
Do you have any information that could be helpful in order to find where Antonio and Maria were born in Italy? or any other interested information? Thanks in advance.
Unfortunately, there isn't much that we can do for you except to provide same sites & guidance. You need to determine Italian town of origin to be able to trace the families in Italy. Obtain as much documentation as you can. Hopefully, something will have their birth town(s) information.
Is there any place where I can search for people that left Italy from Genova port, with destination info? Like list of passengers... I would like to check if I can find any info starting from the departure dates...

If you take the surname Ghiglieri and type it into the Ellis Island Website, the most common town that shows up with that surname is the town called Cuorgne.
Now this is only a "possibility". You need some more proof.
However, just in case you want to write to this town as an option, here is the address.

My Ginocchio family was orginally from Vareze and La Spezia, Ligure, Genova, Italy. In 1876 Giovanni Ginocchio (born 1852) came to California, USA and in 1883 his wife Angelina DePaoli (born 1850) and daughter Maria Ginocchio joined him. Angelina's mother was Maria Depaoli and her father's name was Ghiglieri Guglielmo. Ginovanni's parents were Giambatista Ginocchio and Madalina Calegari - his mother was called Maria Ginocchio. Giovanni also had a sister named Maria Ginocchio who remained in Italy. My cousin has been to Italy and has church records of the family. It sounds like we might be the same family. I would love to exchange info.
Maybe you can help me. My family came to America in 1906, however I am having problems finding any info from the 1850's back. I have a Giovanni Depaoli, b 1849 married to a Madalena Ginocchio, child Pietro Depaoli. I noticed some similarities between your family and mine and was wondering if you have either of these two names in your genealogy. Especially the Madalina Ginocchio name associated with DePaoli. Please let me know if you have any connections.
By the way, what part of California did your family move to? My family is from Porterville area of the central valley.
Hi! I noticed you were looking for more information about your family. I'm a member of the Beronio family, my father Jose Antonio was born in Peru but his family hails from Genova (Genoa) Italy. you could contact me if you have any specific family questions, perhaps you could even help me find out some things about the family, since I have also been researching the Beronios.
