Awwwww, Now you will undersand my frustration, all I have posted is all that I have.. He boarded ship in Naples and landed at Ellis Island, NY on the documentation I\'ve recovered says his residence was Colle Samita, Italy. Yes I know there are many towns which start with Colle, and the Samita I\'ve recevied no hits in my searches. <BR> <BR>Earl

You failed to mention they came from Sardinia since out of 264 persons in Italy, 216 are currently residing in the Island of Sardinia. There is no Colle anything ion Sardinia. The town that is mentioned in the ships manifest for all the Marcia immigrants over the years was Colle Samicta which to my mind makes that A NEIGHBORHOOD within a town. This is known in Italy as a \"frazione\". One time i may have been a town but was absorbed by a nearby town and the people still clung to the old name. I suggest you go scurrying around looking for olds, photographs anythingf with the postal stamp or address of a town. Peter

Thank you so much Peter, I really had no idea Sardinia entered into this as all I have ever seen or heard is Southern Italy. I have never been able to locate many people with the last name of Marcia in Italy. I knew Grampa (Tony) for a very short period of my life, my mother\'s mom is now deceased, and mom always heard him say Southern Italy and nothing about an Island! I only have one document of his which is a request for naturalization which he never submited. I do have a picture of him which was to be submited along with the document so, I do have something. Yes I relize Sardinia is part of S. Italy lol just never connected! I\'ve looked thru the links within this forum (nothing refer) how to get info on people on the Island of Sardinia. Any sudjestions? Tahnk you again Peter, Have a great day! Earl

Go to www.paginebianche.it and in the first line put in Marcia and in the third line put in the following four initials which represent the 4 provinces of Sardinia.. CA and see what comes up and then NU and then OR and then SS. Everyone on Sardinia with Marcia name with their full names and addresses and telephone numbers will appear. Peter

Sardinia = Sardegna and Comune=town. When you get www.paginebianche.it and after you fill in the name and the town and click cerca you will get a page indicating Sardegna and the province (CA) is Cagliari province. When you click that Cagliari you will go to the bottom of the next page that comes up and click COMUNE and you will have a listing of all the town in Cagliari province with persons surnamed Marcia.

Hi There,

Are you sure the surname isn't Mascia and they aren't from Colle Sannita?

I am doing reserach for someone in the group right now that is from that town.

The person I am doing research for has the surnames of Mascia, Petti, Cocca and a few others. I don't think Robert (tebor13) wouldn't mind me saying his name and posting the link about his request.

If you are interested in Colle Sannita, email me privately at brujaojos@yahoo.com.

Have a good one.
