Romano family from Altilia, Cosenza, Italy

Postby jeri71 » 22 Feb 2008, 02:44

I've been able to trace this family back a few generations and I'm stuck. Here's what I have.

Carmine Romano and Filomena Miarbelli were married around 1882 (give or take a few).

They had 4 children that I know of. Charles Pasquale (1883), Giusseppe Raffaele (1886), Rachele (1887) and Francesco (1889). Charles, Joe and Frank all came to America, I have their ship manifests. I have death dates for Charles and Joseph.

The three younger children were born in Altilia, Cosenza, Italy. I can't find a birth record for the oldest boy. Maybe the family moved from another village.

I would love to find more information about this family. If anyone out there can help I would appreciate it. Thank you! :D

Hi Jeri71

Can you post the birth acts on the forum so we can take a look?

All of the records were spread across 2 pages, so there are 2 pics for each person. And sorry for the not-great quality. The printer at the FHC was having issues so I had to take pictures of the microfilm record instead.

Hi Jeri,

Page 1 of Francesco's birth act isn't coming up. So far all I see is Altilia on all the documents. I was hoping there might be an indication that the father was residing or working elsewhwere.

Maybe one of the experts can take a look to confirm - in case I missed it.
