Covatta family of Casacalenda

Post by Berean50 »

Hi all,

I am looking for all the sons and daughters of Francesco Covatta married to Margherita Oporto who lived in Casacalenda, Campobasso, Molise, Italy. I have ne of their sons, Luigi Covatta who married Marie Olvina Angelina Évelina Patenaude in Sacre-Coeur-de-Jesus Parish, Montreal, Qc., Canada on the 10 Jan 1893. There was another brother, Guiseppantonio Covatta who died on the 14 Mar 1872 but I need to know if there are more. Any help would be appreciated.

The key to this exercise is to find Francesco and Margherita's marriage act so you have a starting point. Francesco was 48 at the time of Giuseppantonio's birth in 1872.

I checked the one death act you found and Giuseppantonio was only 13 days old at death.

Here's a link to the 10 year index for births 1866-1875 for Covatta births

And a link to the 10 year index for births 1876-1885 for Covatta births

http://dl.antenati.san.beniculturali.it ... ewsIndex=0

I would make a note of each name, year of birth and act# in the margin for all the Corvatta births and then check the yearly births found here. There are only 12 total births so it should not take too long. Also check the years 1861-1865

Then check the births here.

Thanks, Marty

Hope you and your family are well.

This is the April 1863 marriage of Francesco and Margherita.

There were no children born to this couple in 63, 64, 65, 66 so Luigi was first child.

Berean50--check the two 10 year indices I posted above, note names, years, and act #s and check all to find other children.
