Busi family, Varsi, (Parma Provence) Italy

Postby pelican55 » 03 Nov 2011, 23:42

Looking for Luigi and Angela Busi that lived in Varsi.
Luigi had an older brother, Giovanni, and a younger
brother, Guiseppe. Luigi was born in 1884 and Angela(or Angelina)
in 1895.

Did this couple immigrate to the US? If so, do you have an idea of when and/or where they settled? I have just begun helping a cousin research her Bussi family (from Canneli) and will be glad to keep them in mind as I am looking.

For reference purposes, here is the manifest...

It lists Luigi, 29; his wife Angela, 18; and his brother Giuseppe, 18.
Leaving father BATTISTA in Vargis (should be Varsi which is stated as place of birth on page 2 - last column)
Going to brother GIOVANNI in Homer, PA
Also indicates that Luigi was in US before, in 1911

Thanks, I did find the manifest, but couldn't read the fathers name. I will do some digging. Any place I should go in Italy - Parma Provence - to find marriage or birth records?

You can write directly to the Comune of Varsi to request the birth record of Luigi.
As for marriage record, we don't know Angela's maiden name and marriages were usually held in the town of the bride with a record being made in the town of the groom. If Angela was also from Varsi, that will make it easier. If you're lucky, there may be a notation of the marriage on Luigi's birth record which will give you her name and place of marriage. You might want to request a search from the comune, but try to give a close approximation of the date.

Address:
Ufficio dello Stato Civile
Via Roma, 13
43049 Varsi (PR)
