Scala Coeli

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.

Scala Coeli

Postby wisemonkey » 10 Nov 2007, 16:49

Looking to reach those with ties to Scala Coeli, Cosenza, Calabria. My family name is Ricci.

By 1910 all members of the family immigrated to Livingston, Montana and worked for the Northern Pacific Railroad.

However, grandmother, maiden name Francesca Bottino still had a brother living in Scala Coeli and a sister Marta Defino or Delfino who immigrated to South America. I can recall them sending packages back to Italy but cannot locate any relatives at all which seems odd to me.

By the way, am wondering what they did with their homes when they left Italy? Did they sell them or just leave?

Thanks in advance for your responses.

Hi,
If you are looking for the possibility of family still in Scala Coeli, there is one Bottino listed in the phone book.

The FHC has the civil records for Scala Coeli. Here is the link.

Your next question I can only answer with my own family as an example. There were many children and only one house. Those who went to make their future in America left their parents. The home passed into the hands of the children who remained in Italy.

I did try contacting the Bottino in the phone book and sadly did not receive a reply. I even sent a picture of my grandmother.

At present, I am waiting for the FHC records on microfiche. Someone there mentioned to me that sometimes living relatives do not want to be contacted because they think that you are contacting them to claim property which never occurred to me. All I really want is to find out where I come and what happened before they got here. In other words, you can't know where you are going unless you know where you've been.

I have always been fascinated by the "old country."
