AVENA surname in Italy

Post by Barbarossa » 05 Dec 2018, 03:33

Does anyone have any insight into the AVENA surname in Italy.

Connections from S. America have reached me on the 'dead end' they may have regarding Luigia Colavecchia from Campobasso Province and her spouse Antonio Avena.

I have located a birth record for the only Luigia Colavecchia I could locate so far, that fits the time frame, in Limosano CB, heavily populated with those of that surname, many of which I connect to on blood lines and extended lines.

If the correct Luigia, born Mar 10 1865, then she married young and possibly not in her home town as is normal tradition.

Two of the known children of Antonio and Luigia are Michele (Migel) born c 1884 and Giovanni (Joao) born c1886.
They both passed in Brazil. Both were Italian born and married Italian wives.

Remaining descendants of this couple in Brazil turned to my tree for the potential connections of the Colavecchia lines on it.

Wondering if there's any other knowledge out there that can be shared.
