Cera??? Italy, Need Help Identifying

Postby ZacsDad2016 » 31 Jan 2012, 22:40

I am hoping someone can help identify, from these two Passenger Manifest files, the towns/villages that two of my ancestors are from. The two files are of sisters who came over seperately.

Image

The above image is for Adele Casini. She is on line line 10, and under column 8 (Nationality), it looks like it lists Ceralomma

Image

The above image is for Giorgia Casini. This is page 2 of the manifest, and her entry is line 8. The very last column appears to say Ceratonna.

I tried googling the names, but can't quite match up exactly. I 'think' this is suppose to be from North Italy near the LUCCA area, but I can't say for sure.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Wasn't sure the previous post would allow to see the images correctly or close enough, these are the direct links

Looks like the village of Cerasomma, a frazione of Comune of Lucca

Just looked at the links you gave, and seeing the location of Cerasomma goes along with another family story of how my great grandmother and grandfather came from the same area of Italy but never met until my great-grandfather moved to Butte, Montana and stayed at a boarding house that my great-grandmother was working at. The other interesting thing about these two is that they came to the states almost exactly one year apart.

Thank you for the help, this is great
