Need Help with these Locations

Postby andrea_luikart » 05 Aug 2011, 21:20

I just discovered a pedigree chart in a box with some pictures of my ancestors from Italy and I need some help finding these locations, if they exist.

Casilicato, Italy, Corvello Providence

and

Potenza, Italy, Calvello Providence

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Also, a name of Jellistine Stelliane was found and I am wondering if that is a first and last name or two difference spellings of a first name.

Thank you!

My best guess is that both "places" are actually:

Comune di Calvello, Provincia di Potenza, Regione di Basilicata, Southern Italy

The village of Calvello in the province of Potenza, Basilicata region of southern Italy. See http://www.comunecalvello.com/

Regarding the names, neither appear to be correct, original, spellings. For one thing, the letter "J" is not used in the standard Italian alphabet, and a search of the Italian telephone directory comes up empty on both - a sure sign that they are not valid spellings.

My hobby is finding things. Having found most of my own, I am happy to help others find theirs. PM me! :)

I have done a lot of research on my Calvello ancestors. I'll be happy to help you if you have more information.

I searched Ancesty.com for possible relatives of the Carrione family:

Calvello, Potenza, Basilicata
Atti di Morte 1879 Number 134
7 Ottobre 1879:

Carolina Carrione anni trenta: filatrice (cotton weaver/seamstress)
Father: Giuseppe Carrione: Sarto (taylor)
Mother: Celestina Stigliano: cucitrice (seamstress)

Carrione was not a common name. I have not yet found a link between Carrione and Cirone, which was a fairly common name.

Good luck,

Dee
