Looking for town, named Terra Nova Di Sibra , Cosenza

Postby Aquafur » 24 May 2007, 23:18

Need help, just located WWI record of grandfathers cousin. I believe that my grandfather is from the same village. Spelled Terra Nova Di Sibra, Cosaenza. Can not make out if its Sibra or Siba hard to read the writing. If its any help grandfathers last name was Zicaro his father was Pasquale.Would really like to know more about this town.

Thank you

The name of the village is Terranova da Sibari, Cosenza.

I found this immigration record for Pasquale Vicaro coming to the US with his mother and 2 siblings from Terranova to Manhattan NY where his father Domenico Zicaro is already living.

Can you give us more information on your Grandfather? Full name, siblings names, wife, children?

The Zicaro family in the immigration manifest above is Pasquale Zicaro with a sister, brother and mother Concetta. Is this your Pasquale?
