My Grandmother

Postby mombrickey » 06 May 2014, 18:05

I am a newcomer to the site. I am searching for birth location and date for my grandmother.


This is what I know:

Caroline Delaurenti

Died 18 January 1958
Vandergrift, Pennsylvania


She probably crossed the ocean after 1912.

I greatly appreciate any help that might be available.

1915 Manifest

Destination: Vandergrift PA to join husband Grato? Rossi

Last residence Cicogno

Husband's naturalization papers state her birthday as 7 March 1892.

EDITED TO ADD-- Also shows her birthplace as Ciccogno, Ivrea. Ivrea is a town in Torino; perhaps Ciccogno is an old name of a hamlet in the town.

From Grato Rossi's naturalization record
Rivarolo Canavese, province Torino, region Piedmont

Naturalization Petition for Grato ROSSI
In Vandergrift, Westmoreland, PA in 1930
His occupation is miner
BORN in Rivarollo, Canevezza, Italy [ Rivarolo Canavese, province Torino, region Piedmont] on 10 march 1885
Wife: Caroline – who he married 12 March 1912 in “Ciccogno, Italy” [I will need to search this…could be Ciconio - a neighboring town to Rivarolo Canavese ]
Arrived 13 October 1912 on SS La Provence at New York.


Biff, :D
What are your thoughts.... Ciccogno - maybe this is Ciconio? near Rivarolo?

Hi T! :)

What threw me on the naturalization doc was the reference to Ivrea; on other DeLaurenti records I located, Ciconio was mentioned as the last residence or place of birth. So, Ciconio is the likely place of birth.
