Hi Steve:

Here are a couple more names to try:

Anna Maria Di Giacomo
born Sept 1872
Castiglione di Caroviglio, Campobasso
married Constanzi Minni ca. 1900

Her Father's name was Vincenzo Di Giacomo and she had 2 sisters that I know of - Brigita Di Giacomo and Maria Di Giacomo (those 2 emigrated to the US and became nuns).

Wondering if you can find out anything about Vincenzo, his wife or any other siblings.

Thank you again

Really appreciate that Steve thank you! Know it's a long shot and am convinced it's all nonsense but there's always that what if!

Hi Steve
My wife's ancestor was John Lando born 1836ish in Genoa he was British by birth according to all the Scottish Census's. He first appeared in Scotland age 15 in 1851. The family story was he escaped from Italy on a vessel which was crewed by a family member.
I have found a Giovanni Battista Lando born in 1831 in Moneglia near Genoa, parents Simone and Petronilla Marengo.

I have ship info where a Angelo Marengo and Giovanni Lando were crew.  It appears that he may had escaped while the Siege of Genoa was on in April 1849.
I have looked through the film on British Births in Genoa at the local Family Search with no luck.

Can you help please

Peter

Hi Peter,
 I used to live in Rapallo 30 kms from Genoa on the coast.  Moneglia is in the Province of Genoa. The Birth records should be with the Archives.  Will send e-mail for Giovanni Lando 1831/1836.
See what I can find.

sami,
A bit of confusion here.
Campobasso is the capital of the Province of Campobasso, region of Molise.  There is no Castiglione di Caroviglio.
There is  a Castiglione part of the town of CAROVILLI in the province of Isernia, region of Molise.
Could be a mis-transcription in your records.  Where did you get the town from.
Please let me know and if it is as you say I will write to the Campobasso Archives and the Molise region Archives.  Btw. its not a problem for me, so don't worry.

stephenbonn,
Have written to Archives for Trieste and Archives of Ragusa under the name Nicola Bonachi/Bonnaccia b. 25/12/1832.
Mention Ragusa as it is a Province of Sicily.  Assuming "Austria" is a mis-transcription and maybe a town in Prov. of Ragusa.  Someone may have transcribed what they heard and spelt it wrong.

Hi Steve

My Wife appreciates what you are doing for us as we have been searching for over 15 years now.

I have all the Lando surnames Baptised between 1817 and 1837 at the Parracchia Santa Croce which were sent to me by the Pastor.

My John Lando died in Scotland in 1917. The crew member Giovanni B Lando was drowned when he was Master of a ship named Austerlitz which sank in 1871.

As my ancestor was British would he be Baptised John rather than the Italian Giovanni?

Peter

stephenbonn,

Hi Stephen,
Just got a reply from the Trieste Archives. They do have these documents and suggested I write to the Historical Diocesan  Archives in Trieste.  Have sent them an e-mail.
Still waiting to hear from the Archives in Ragusa.
