Births in Potenza

Post by bjrcornell » 31 Jan 2015, 00:12

George Ross Broncushio was born in 1851 in Potenza. I would like any information you can give
me on him. He sailed to New York in about 1880.

There's civil records from Potenza, Potenza, Italy 1809-1910 on microfilm from ... %20Library

Short term loans of microfilm cost $7.50 - you'll have to create a free account at and select your local Family History Center before you can order. The microfilm will be shipped to the Family History Center you selected as your local Center and will remain there for 90 days from the day it shipped (or a guaranteed minimum of 60 days with the film). The Center will have microfilm viewers for you to use whenever they are open.
