The City of Reggio (Provincia Reggio di Calabria)

Postby JamesBianco » 08 Feb 2008, 10:57

Ann Tantangelo has uncovered a new lead in my quest to determine the origins of my Bianco family. Thanks to her diligent work I now have this additional information:

Luigi Bianco (son of Diego) born about 1840/1845 (I do not know where)
died between 1872 (his last child's birth) & February 1894 Reggio (The City) Calabria (based on the marriage record of his son Paolo).

married around 1865

Grazia Siniscalchi (dau of Nicolo) born about 1840/1845 (Scilla, Calabria)
died before 1894 Reggio (The City) Calabria

I now need to take this one step further and find their death records in Reggio. I am hoping to obtain the place of birth and mother's name for at least Luigi Bianco, so I can trace his family wherever they came from.

does anyone have any of these films on loan with the FHC?

This is so exiting! Especially since it is my paternal line!

The correct name is Reggio Calabria. I know that Google Maps says Reggio di Calabria, but in the name there is no di. See the official site.

Thank you Livio for clearing that up and the link. I had copied the name from the Mormon (LDS) Website Catalog.
