passenger records:Montecorvino

Post by darylltx » 06 Dec 2013, 16:10

Around 1905 ellis island records, when someone's last residence just said Montecorvino, was it rovella or pugliano? Why did it just say Montecorvino and didn't specify which one?
I've seen some later arrivals after 1905 that did specify rovella but many just say Montecorvino.

Thank you for your help,

When one says "Montecorvino" -it is Montecorvino Rovella that is being referenced.

Do not know why, but here is the entry in WIKI
Montecorvino Pugliano is a town and comune in the province of Salerno in the Campania region of south-west Italy. The communal seat is in Pugliano and no one of the populated places in the municipality is called "Montecorvino", a toponym [place name] related to the nearby commune of Montecorvino Rovella.
