Orphanage Novara

As a nation state, Italy has emerged only in 1871. Until then the country was politically divided into a large number of independant cities, provinces and islands. The currently available evidences point out to a dominant Etruscan, Greek and Roman cultural influence on today's Italians.

Orphanage Novara

Postby embracinggenerations » 03 Feb 2010, 19:07

Hello everyone,

I have been given information that my great great grandmother was from an orphanage called novara. Does anyone have any information on this place or where I could get that information? I believe at one point she was fostered out. Her son was born in Mornago and after his father died, she had 3 more children in Cimbra.

Thank you for your time in advance

Abby

The book is "Who's Who in the World, 1912" and on the right side you should see,

AVOGADRO, Antonio:
Born Oct 13, 1868, in Novara. President of the Administration of the Hospital for the cure of the scrofulous Poor and of the Orphanage for females of Santa Lucia. Residence: Novara, Italy


PS: Scrofulous: Having scrofula.

Scrofula: A form of tuberculosis affecting the lymph nodes, especially of the neck, that is most common in children and is usually spread by unpasteurized milk from infected cows

Dear Abby write to Novara and if they have the records they will let you know one way or the other. The sooner you write the sooner you will know for sure since they talk about records dating from 1824 to 1989 but do not specify what their archives contain . =Peter=
