Re: cerimele

Hi Scott,

Do you have any other info on Francesco's family? Children, siblings, spouse?

Re: ORLANDO, PALLOFFA FROM AGNONE

I just went back and looked at my old research notes and found something that may help. These both come from the Agnone civil records that the LDS have on film. Angelo Orlando, born April, 1886, to Crispino Orlando and Angela Maria Pallotta Raffaele Orlando, born January, 1885, to Crispino Orlando a...

Re: naming question

And, at least as far as the name Maria is concerned, it's not just twins. My GG-grandfather's sisters were Maria Pasquala, Maria Concetta, Maria Grazia, Bambina Maria, and Maria Antonia (and, just for good measure, his wife was named Maria Fedela, and their only daughter was Maria Carmela).

Re: does this pic look like it was taken in Italy?

Here's a link to a photo of one of the buildings at the Hagley Museum. It might be worthwhile sending the photo to someone at the museum to see whether the photo could have been taken there.

Re: does this pic look like it was taken in Italy?

The terrace is very shallow and edged with a rock wall. It looks like the ground drops off beyond that. The walls are rough stone block with very narrow slit windows. It suggests to me that the building is built onto the side of a fairly steep hill. It reminds me of houses I've seen that were built ...

Re: significance of lines crossed out on ship manifests

Sometimes they would cross out the names of U.S. citizens and then list them on a separate page.

Re: Earthquake

I'm visiting family in Agnone, about 70 km away, and the quake woke me up. There was some damage here, but not much. All of the public buildings were closed so that they could assess the structures. Family in Chieti say there was more damage there, but nothing like poor L'Aquila. As Essgee said, the...

Graduation gift

My cousin in Italy is graduating from college and I wanted to send her a small gift. Are there any particular traditions or customs for graduation gifts? She is from Molise and lives in Abruzzo.

Thanks,

Re: Genealogy Software - Languages other than English

Thanks Libees.

I don't mind going between progams, so I'll give both Legacy and My Heritage a try. Are there any features, reports, etc. of either that you particularly like?

Genealogy Software - Languages other than English

I currently use Family Tree Maker 2005 which, as far as I can tell, only uses English. I'm currently working with a cousin in Italy to try to flesh out the more recent generations of our family tree. However, he is not particularly comfortable reading English. Do later incarnations of Family Tree Ma...

Re: Huge dilemma!

I saw that you came across a possible lead on Genealogy.com a while back - Antonio Roselli (b. 1885) of Piedimonte San Germano, son of Salvatore Roselli and Maria Elena di Giorgio. Did anything come of that?

Re: Huge dilemma!

Hi Melissa, I looked at the images you posted on Ancestry. (At least I'm assuming that was you.) Have you tried the Scotland's People site at all - www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk ? I know it's a pay site, but in my own experience you get a lot for your 6GBP. I poked around a little and it looks like the...
