Im looking for a place in Italy

Postby Mimie » 07 Jul 2010, 02:05

Im looking for a place which my great grandfather said was Vergema
But I cant find this place in Italy
Do you know which place it can be?
Something like Vergema..it must be spelled wrong.

Thanks

Hello Mimie :-)

Try looking at this site which lists the "frazioni" (small hamlets) alphabetically... I've linked you to the "Ver" page

If you give us some details, we may be able to locate your grandfather's passenger list or possibly even naturalization papers. From those, we should be able to narrow down the correct place of birth.

If you don't mind: his full name, year or full date of birth, wife's name, and approximate year of immigration.

(I presume that is what we are looking for - his place of birth or residence?)

He died in Rio de Janeiro in 1959
And he was born between 1876 and 1884

Mimie go to www.prontoimprese.it and select "V" and all places in Italy starting with V are listed. Perhaps seeing the town name spelled out in front of yhour eyes will help you recall the right name. =Peter=
