Catholic: Nuns

I have a half-aunt who became a nun, I believe in Guarda Veneta, Rovigo, Italy. I do not know how to search for a nun. She was born between 1921 – 1927 to Domenico Periotto and Margherita Forlani. We concluded that her name was Eurosia.

I have learned of new information concerning my aunt. Another spelling of her name is Aurosia. As a nun, her name was Sister Pia. She was born possibly in 1927 and died at the age of 89 in Cervia, Italy. Still searching.

Thank you Italysearcher. We are not certain where she was born. We know where she died, but all these dates are more recent and do not show on FamilySearch.org.

Then write to the town where she died and it will tell you her town of birth.
