Borgo Nuovo in Monteleone di Puglia

Postby dougrogers » 09 Oct 2016, 05:42

I know that Borgo Nuovo means "New Road", and humorously this means nothing in terms of Monteleone being a medieval hill town to a North American Canadian. I remain curious if anyone has any idea when this particular Borgo Nuovo was established. I am curious because it might yield some clue as to when my ancestral family actually established themselves outside the town proper, as the home is on this "New Road"

"Borgo Nuovo" does not mean "new road", but "new village"; in small villages, it usually indicates a new group of houses in the same village. I'm sorry, but I found nothing about the "Borgo Nuovo" in Monteleone.

If you know (or you think) that your ancestors were from Monteleone di Puglia, you could find info about your Italian family at Registrar of Vital Statistics in the City Office or at the parishes. Borgo Nuovo from italian means New Road, it means that Monteleone being a medieval hill town to a North American Canadian.
