Italian WW1 Military Records

Hello - I am hoping someone can lead me in the right direction. I have a gg Uncle who lived in Scandale, Italy during WW1. I recently received a picture of a male relative in an Italian WW1 uniform.

Re: Castagna, Italy

Wow! Thanks everyone! So I didn't realize that Rafalle was his brother and not his cousin. For some reason, probably because I saw the word "cousin" and they weren't going to the same house I didn't make the connection. So know that you all have connected the dots for me! As I understand it, Santo o...

Thanks Douglas!

I will send you some information I have on my family tomorrow. I know Graziano is very common, I didn't realize Sacco was as well.

Talk to you soon!

Re: Castagna, Italy

Sorry Mj I just saw your post about the manifest. I will confirm that is the correct manifest for Santo. Thanks Tessa!

Re: Castagna, Italy

Thank you! I am sure it is Calabria. All of his records show him being born in Castagna. His draft registration for WWI lists Castagna, Catanzaro. Here is my ggf info. Santo Graziano b. 11.1.1888 in Castagna, Italy a. 4.17.1903, NYC, settled in Utica, NY m. Maria Coriale in Utica, NY 1909 d. 7.12.19...

Castagna, Italy

I am wondering if any one knows if Castagna, Italy is/was an actual place in the Calabria region. It is the location of my great grandather's birth. I believe it may be or have been in the Province of Catanzaro. Anytime I have tried to research it I have come up empty. I don't know much about my ggf...

Re: Sacco and Valotta

Hi Douglas, I was wondering through the forum and noticed we shared a ancestral surname of Sacco in common. My great-grandfathers mother was named Maria Sacco. My ggf is Santo Graziano and he was born in Castagna, which I believe is or was a commune of Catanzaro. I can never confirm or deny it any t...

Re: Translation Help!!!!

I am glad to to have connected the dots on this mystery. Ironically I have a similar mystery on my non-Italian side as well with a ggm. Hopefully that one will come together too. I agree the story, although sad, is special to me and is something I will record to share with future generations and wit...

Re: Translation Help!!!!

Thanks again Tessa! I forgot to mention that the birth date on the death certificate is Sept. 20, 1883. The women married is the women who died. To much of a concidence for it not to be at least a possible set of parents for my GGM. I will never know the whole story, but I imagine that the mother wa...

It also has her parents names listed on their as well. Father Vincenzo Montemurro (her second son is James) an...
