My apologies to those of you who have already looked at this post . I realized that the subject line was very similar to another post so i'm reposting with a new subject line because i don't know how to edit the subject line in an already existing post. For those who HAVE already read this, Ettore and Enrico were brothers; this request is about ETTORE who is in the photo. Thank you again in advance for all help.
P.S. The writing on the photo has already been translated so i no longer need help on that.
I am looking for some assistance in finding information on Ettore La Medica who is my 2nd great grand uncle. Above you will find a photo i have of him. This photo was given to my great uncle Louie when he went back to Italy for a visit. Ideally, i would appreciate help with the following: 1) What does the writing on the photo say, 2) What is the significance of the uniform Ettore is wearing 3) Birth, death, marriage records.
I know that Ettore was from Torremaggiore, Foggia. I know he was the son of Luigi La Medica and Amalia Maria Elisabetta Romano. I also know that he married Josephine and had a least one son, Luigino. I don't know when he was born but it should have been in the 1860s or 1870s -- and that is based on his brothers and sisters.
Thanks much in advance,
