New Member: Looking for Rossi

Post by fernandars » 05 Jun 2011, 17:21

Dear all,

My name is Fernanda looking for Rossi from Genvoa who emigrated to Argentina, which is like saying I'm looking for Smith from New York that emigrated to Australia :lol:

I found this forum browsing the internet. A member here, Darig, long time ago, finally found his ancestors and the town they were in Genova by going personally -from Lima, Peru I believe- to the Palazzo Ducale and asking for the Census. He didn't specify the year of the Census. I wrote to the Archivio di Genova to check military records, but they weren't too helpful.

I wanted to ask if anybody else has researched a Census. I have information of parents, siblings, spouse and approximate year of birth of Domenico Rossi, but not the town or ship. It's like he just showed up in Argentina one day with no history behind him.

Any ideas are welcome. If anybody here lives in Genova and can do a search in Palazzo Ducale, please let me know.

I can share information about emigration to Argentina, I have plenty.
