Caneva Family from Forni Avoltri

Post by ACCaneva » 26 May 2010, 02:13

I am looking for any information on the Caneva line from the Forni Avoltri area. Guiseppe A. Caneva was born in 1891 in Forni Avoltri came over to the states. His father (as far as we can tell) was Giovanni Caneva.

Any info would be a huge help!

Thank you!

As a starting point you may write to

Ufficio di Stato Civile
Comune di Forni Avoltri
Corso Italia 22
33020 Forni Avoltri UD
Italia

and ask for the birth act of Giuseppe Caneva.

Italian form letters are available at http://www.circolocalabrese.org/resources/letters/

The birth act will contain the name of his parents

Thanks for the link!

We have some kind of document that is in Italian that we figure is a birth certificate... maybe it's a Birth Act. That's where we get Giovanni from... but it says Giovanni fu Giovanni. Any idea what that might mean?
