Morrval, Italy

Postby ForzaItaliaPgh » 19 Oct 2010, 17:20

Ciao tutti,

I have a copy of my GGF's shipmanifest from Ellis Island. A couple of things seem rather odd.

Specifically, they have the last place of residence as "Morrval, Italy". As far as I know such a place doesn't exist, the name doesn't even look Italian. He was born in Lucca, Tuscany. Does anyone have any idea what "Morrval, Italy" might be in reference to?

Grazie.

for reference:

manifest page 1 line 9 column 10
http://www.ellisisland.org/EIFile/popup ... &line=0009

Last residence is Morrovalle, a comune (municipality) in the Province of Macerata in the Italian region Marche

Thanks a million vj.

So this doc says he had a brother named Cesare? Interesting. I only have record of brothers named Gino and Giovanni and a sister named Ilva. I'll have to find Cesare's birth cert. Thanks
