Ettore La Medica

All,

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,

chris

The writing says "A Gino e famiglia con i più cari pensieri. Zio Ettore 1869" - "To Gino (nick for Luigi) and family with my dearest thoughts. Uncle Ettore"

Just a suggestion, Chris... :-)

You titled this post with the same title as your other post. Maybe you are not gettting any attention with it because visitors think they have visited it already.

Why not give it a more specific title based on what you are looking for such as...

Can anyone identify this uniform?
Help with uniform identification, please.
Circa 1949 uniform -need help to identify, please.

Just my "two cents" :-)
