Re: Village of Rampone

Hi. "Bricco Rampone" is the name of a small hamlet belonging to the Comune (town) of Frinco, province of Asti, in Piemonte (northern Italy, as you correctly stated). In my opinion, it has nothing to do with the town of Strangolagalli, province of Frosinone, in Lazio (central Italy, at least 5-600 mi...

Re: Please translate words written on back of picture

I obviously don't know who sent the picture, but it should be the portrait of Luigi and Vincenza Baglio. What I was saying is that it's impossible to tell which kind of relationship Luigi and Vincenza had with the recipient: they could have been his/her grandchildren or his/her nephew and niece. Cia...

Re: Please translate words written on back of picture

"Ricordo dei suoi nipoti Baglio Luiggi e Baglio Vincenza"
"Souvenir of your *** Baglio Luigi and Baglio Vincenza"

*** = The Italian word "nipoti" may indicate both "grandchildren" and "Nephew/niece"

Re: Carlo Costa-Zana

Hello, Mjc. I'm too younger for the 1937's trip, but old enough for the one your sister did a few years ago. Unfortunately, it's not her I had the chance to meet but another Zana family: they were/are about the same generation of your mother (from what I can understand) and they still lived in Leech...

Re: Carlo Costa-Zana

Hello MJC, I live in the area and all the names and places you mentioned are familiar to me. Correct Italian spellings are "Costa Zana" and "Pastor Ris" as surnames; "Giacomo" and "Maddalena" (and "Carlo", obviously) as first names; San Giorgio (Canavese) and Cuceglio as places. Now, however San Gio...

Re: San Benigno Canavese (Torino)

Hi. I live in the area and I can assure you there's only one cemetery in San Benigno Canavese: CIMITERO COMUNALE Via Chivasso 10080 San Benigno Canavese (TO) Also, the church your ggparents could have used was certainly the catholic one, the only existing there at that time. Here's the address: PARR...

Re: Surname BELLINO

Locana is a mountain village, made of almost 100 hamlets (group of houses), often located a few miles far from the center of the village: today, most of those hamlets are deserted, but in the past there was a church or at least a chapel in many of them (see here: http://www.comune.locana.to.it/?pubb...

Re: Family terms in Italian

Unfortunately, Italian language hasn't a proper way to correctly indicate this kind of relationship. We may indifferently say "cousin" or "2nd cousin", which both are wrong definition: the English one is much better and more precise.

Re: Surname BELLINO

Hi.
Bellino is present also in Canavese area (north-western part of the Province of Turin, i.e N-W of N.W. of Piemonte region). There still are families with this surname in the village of Locana (http://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Locana).
Hope this helps.

Re: Obtaining Stato di Famiglias (Forno di Rivara)

Hi. I live in the area and I can tell you that Forno di Rivara was once an hamlet of the Rivara's Comune, but it's a Comune on its own since 3 centuries ago. So you have to direct your inquiries not to Rivara's city hall, but to Forno Canavese (this is the official denomination since 1927). Here is ...
