Re: Bosco, Francesco Domenico - Marsicovetere - also Campiglia

Dear Suanj,

This document is helpful as to 19th century illegitimate/foundling children. It may be available in Italian also.

Re: Bosco, Francesco Domenico - Marsicovetere - also Campiglia

Dear Suanj, Oh oh, this is a VERY exciting idea! I see your thinking exactly, and why my ideas about Quasimondo may be mistaken (sent you private message about that, before I read this). I have thought a long time that the birth may have been in a neighboring town, and his wet nurse or adoptive fami...

Re: Bosco, Francesco Domenico - Marsicovetere - also Campiglia

Suanj,

Yes, we should start a fresh thread. This one is very old and frayed! I can't figure out how to attach the Calabrese ship manifest information here. Can send to you separately if you wish, or share with anyone else interested.

Re: Bosco, Francesco Domenico - Marsicovetere - also Campiglia

Hello Suanj! Your speedy reply is amazing! I sent you a separate reply because I wasn't sure if you would see the one in the thread. In that reply, there is discussion of a Marsicovetere birth record you sent me after the 1845 records came online, long ago now! I think it is seeming very likely that...

Re: Marsicovetere - Francesco Domenico Bosco

Oh my, I am very late to the party with my replies! So sorry I never saw these great posts until now. Yes, many musicians from Marsicovetere, but their beginnings are not always a pretty story. Required reading is the book "Little Slaves of the Harp" by John Zucchi. It will knock your socks off, gua...

Re: Bosco, Francesco Domenico - Marsicovetere - also Campiglia

To Joe and suranji (spelling?), Many thanks for both your replies. I'm so sorry I am seeing them so very long after they were written. J, full contracts for the kids are very rare and I will certainly go look at the one you mentioned. Many thanks for taking the time to write a reply. S, I will follo...

Re: Book Translation - Michele Lavaca

Did anyone ever find an English translation of this book, or even just portions of it? I am also keenly interested in this, as it seems to be the sole (online) reference with many hundreds of names of who fought in which Basilicata town. If this was only names of who fought with Garibaldi, it seems ...

When did Naples become sending port for ships bound for U.S.

To anyone on list as to history of port of Naples, I understand that few ships bound for America originated in Naples until after 1880. I seem unable to find more specific information, other than that the port was in decline after unification and that few ships bound for America were registered Ital...

Re: Bosco - Francesco 1845

For exitbroker,

Have you received any other replies about Francesco Domenico Bosco? He is my great grandfather, through his son George Borra Bosco. I have some information to share, if you wish.
