Locate Rescigno church birth records-Tunisia

Postby lilbees » 29 Jun 2007, 17:06

I am not sure who to contact to locate church birth records related to my family who lived in Gabes prior to 1900. The parents remained. A great aunt and my great, great grandparents remained in Tunisia. Three children came to the US. I am also seeking an agency to contact regarding death records as well.

Vincenzo Rescigno
Guiseppa (Josephine) Rescigno
Genevieve Rescigno

Their Parents: Antonio Rescigno/Angela Morno
unknown Rescigno (F)

Any assistance would be appreciated

Thank you for the information. That is, in fact, my grandfather. I have his immigration papers but wanted his and his sisters birth records and the death records of his mother and father.

I already use the Debono website which is great but not able to get information relevant to my needs.

When my grandfather registered for the draft for World War 1 both he and his friends were classified Italian not Sicilian or Tunisian. Even though he was born there he still considered himself Italian not Tunisian.

I hope someone has an agency name I can write to.

I found the Antonio Rescigno, father of Vincenzo, ship's manifest;
Antonio coming from Gabes, Africa, age 64 came in USA the Nov 08, 1910, joining Vincenzo son in Chicago ILl; the italian birthplace of Antonio it is hard from to read

Had to answer too many phone calls. Sorry, left out the text. Anyway, I was surprised to learn my great aunt Guiseppa had a sister already in Chicago (brother-in-law Verzi). The Verzi name is familiar but no one could figure out where it fit in the family. Now I have some research to do to see who came earlier to the US. All the information you have given me is correct so far regarding the immigration. It confirms what is in my grandfather's immigration papers. You have been a great help. I wish I could afford to have you do some of the research for me.

I don't know about the birthplace of Antonio or Angelina (Morno). I believe she was Sicilian. Their close friends were originally from Palermo (Adamo Anzalone) before going to Tunisia. Adamo and Vincenzo came to the US close to the same time.

Antonio was most probably born in ROCCAPIEMONTE ( as in ship's manifest) and probably also Angelina MARNO( no Morno) .. I believe... I don't know much abt italians in Tunisie, and I believe that you can to contact the italian consulate in Tunisie for to have some info abt the ancestor's birth documents....
