Bialatine?

Postby nanette0269 » 18 Mar 2010, 17:30

My children's grandmother was born in the US, but her parents come over from Italy. She recalls that her father, John Rossi, was from Bialatine, born in 1895. I can't find any record of this city name. She does recall that it was near Rome, but she recalls the Bialatine reference stronger than the Rome reference.

Any assistance in identifying this town would be appreciated!

Hello!
It may be
Baia Latina (formerly Baia e Latina) a comune (municipality) in the Province of Caserta in the Italian region of Campania
Valarie

for interest, here's a 1917 WWI Card for a John Rossi born in Baia e Latina
