Can someone please translate this please esp the date of issue. Thanks, There are four photos of this it was rather a large document and it arrived in four photo copies.It belonged to my Great Great grandfather Antonio Casagrande. Pam
The passport was issued in Chiavari Jan 24 1849 and is valid for New York. The notation, dated Feb 13 1949, on the last image states rìthat Antonio is accompanied by his son Gerolamo. Antonio, aged 30, resided in Orero (Genova) and was called to go in US by Michele Biggio, property owner, residing there.
When a relative gave us a copy of this passport it had a translation of sorts with it. We had reached so many dead ends in finding the ship he arrived on that we suspected that it might be a flawed translation and YES after you translated the dates the passport was issued we realize the old papers did not have an accurate translation done on them. Would it be possible now to get the entire document translated? You have helped us greatly by giving us not only a correct date but a new Spelling of his sons name...we were not even aware he was listed on this passport! Thank you very much. Pam
This is great to have a correct translation! Does it give any information as to where either Antonio or Gerolamo were born or any other information that would be useful intracking them in Italy? They lived in Orero ,is it likely Gerolamo was born there? Thank you very much for your help! Does it give the location of Michael Biggo in the United States? Pam
