Re: Mother's Name Unknown

Would it be possible to find the birth records of these individuals? That is where you will find the name of the mother, unless the mother did not want to be identified. Information for death records are submitted by living people. If the mother died a long time ago, they may not have known her name...

Torriano = 20 comuni today in Italy

Re: Torriano - Bojano

Response to Jennifer75... Per the question as to the correct spelling of the surname, Torriano or Troiano, you can see by all the above responses that both spellings were used alternatively in the records. This is probably largely due to the person writing up the record and how they "heard" the name...

Re: MyHeritage: contacting a tree's creator

To C_Artale, thank you for the email address. I wrote to her on 12/5/16; but no response yet. You can go ahead and write and ask her if that email address is still valid and that I have written her. Thank you. Bette

Re: MyHeritage: contacting a tree's creator

C_Artale...That is a fabulous idea. I appreciate your willingness to assist. Here is the information: It is under "My Heritage Family Trees". The name is Carmelo Spadaro; under "familia Rap, managed by Teresa Rap". It shows a birth date of 1901 and shows a child by the name of Juan Spadaro Yaya. The...

Re: MyHeritage: contacting a tree's creator

I think that is a question you need to ask My Heritage. I had a go-around with them when I noticed that a member or former member hijacked a photograph of my great-uncle Carmelo Spadaro (born 1883 in Valguarnera) and was using his image for a completely different man named Carmelo Spadaro in her tre...

Re: Pisano/Marotta family where can I find records?

First step is to confirm the town of birth. Have you found her on a ship's manifest? Did she emigrate with her parents? Which port did they arrive at? Where did they settle in the US?
