Re: Problem with Family Search

The link that T provided appears to be working. You should be able to access the records for all years and types which are on familysearch. I just went through each of them, and the images are loading quickly.

Re: Please help Translation Stazzonelli Birth - Pendolasco, Sondrio Province

Re: Giovanni Tardito and Maria Capra

T- I agree that the dates are off. There are church records for Borgofranco d'Ivea on familysearch.org. They are accessible from a home computer. I can't find either of the surnames Tardito or Capra. I've checked a lot of the years. The Borgofranco records seem to start with image 1826 of 3078. Star...

Re: Passenger lists

Sorry you haven't had luck with getting info from the town. Then you'll need to concentrate on finding subsequent passenger lists from Italy to the U.S. His name is probably badly misspelled, which is why you can't find him. Also, do you know if he used a different first name in the U.S.?

Re: Need to find info on grandfather Rocco Crafa from pietrelcina. Born in 1887 came to United States in early 1900s.

There are records here for the town. There is no Rocco born between 1885 and 1889 there. Indices for the birth records are in alphabetical order at the end of a particular year's record. If you find him, someone on the forum will be happy to help you with the translations http://dl.antenati.san.beni...

Re: Problem with Family Search

Helen

Could you be more specific concerning what you are searching for? A town in Agrigento Province or the city of Agrigento? what type of record and what year? You may need the antenati website instead of family search.

Re: Passenger lists

There are no return passenger lists to Italy, but some Italian towns do have dates in their registers when someone left and returned to the town. So I would write to the town of Luogosano and inquire.

Re: Family letter

Grazie, Pippo. Now I see the words "un grande spese," which I somehow misread earlier. Yes, the family spent a lot of money to find a cure.

Glad you "chimed in," Angela. I agree with you, and had meant to add that correction, but got sidetracked.

Re: Family letter

Hi Scott I'm taking a stab at this letter since no one else here is. I hope what I understand is accurate. I don’t know who the writer of this letter is, as only the first page is here, and the signature must be on a subsequent page. The person is writing to a beloved friend to tell him about the de...
