Re: Looking for information on my grandfather and his side of the family

Hi - I "second" Tessa's request, and are you referring to the city of Pula on Sardinia, or Pula (Pola) on the northwest coast of modern-day Croatia? The latter would be my guess, since it's much nearer to Venice than the other city . . .

Re: Street Names of Campli

Hi Rick - I wonder if the two words on the second line are really one slightly-misspelled word, "circonvallazione," which is Italian for a bypass or a ring-road. It sounds like a modern expression, but the word "circonvallazione" appears in many Italian newspapers, like these thr...

Re: Military history and question

Hi Ellen - I looked but I didn't find anything that will help you. However, here's what I found, in case you're curious. A book titled “Statuto Penale Militare per lo regno delle due sicilie” [in English, “Military Criminal Statute for the kingdom of the two Sicilies”] was published in Naples in 181...

Re: Villa Latina unknown origin

Of the surnames you’ve mentioned, Fusco, Valente and Rinaldi are currently very common throughout Italy. But the surnames Pacitti and Notargiacomo are not common and this might help you decide where to look. Here is the current distribution of the surname Pacitti: http://www.gens.info/italia/it/turi...

Re: 1868 Birth Record Lindoro Carota #87

Thank you, Erudita, for confirming what I thought I saw. It's hard for me to decipher the handwriting, especially when Italian isn't my native language! Hi Jerry - I don't know if this will help, but the following map shows the current distribution of the surname Carota in Italy: http://www.gens.inf...

Re: 1868 Birth Record Lindoro Carota #87

Hi Jerry - Unless I'm mistaken, Lindoro was abandoned. I could be wrong, but I think I see "Ruota communal," or "municipal wheel" at the beginning of the 7th line. Also, the word "projetto" or "proietto" appears before his name in the margin.

Re: Help with record

Hi James - after you mentioned Pontecorvo and Esperia, I went back to the map and found Monticelli and Roccaguglielma. Here, you can see Monticelli in the top-left part of the map, and Roccaguglielma is 3.7 kilometers southeast of it, at the bottom-center: https://maps.arcanum.com/en/map/europe-19ce...

This page from the November 18, 1861 Gazzetta dell’ Umbria mentions a fight with brigands in the mountains of Lenola and Roccaguglielmo (Roccaguglielmo is red-highlighted): https://www.internetculturale.it/jmms/iccuviewer/iccu.jsp?id=oai%3Awww.internetculturale.sbn.it%2FTeca%3A20%3ANT0000%3AN%3ATO00...

Re: Help with record

Hi James - It seems these processetti are in chronological order. Before your document (#63), there's one dated July 10, 1862, and before that there are three in a row dated June 14, 1862. The record following yours is dated August 14, 1862. Your document seems to have been dated the 3rd day of an i...

Hi Mark - I transcribed the first part of record, but I have to stop in mid-sentence, unfortunately. I did the best I could but some words were illegible; maybe someone can correct my errors: "L'anno Milleottocentonovantuno addi dieci di Febbraio alle ore pomeridiane sei nella casa posta nel Co...

Hi Alessio, I just found this information about Poggioreale on Wikipedia. It is sad but interesting: "Poggioreale is a ghost town and comune in the province of Trapani, western Sicily, southern Italy, located in the Belice valley. The Economy was mostly based on agriculture and fruit cultivatio...
