Ok Steve, thank you for trying - maybe they are sick of getting requests for certificates.

I've never used Rootschat before, it was recommended from another that I seek help here. Looking to find any information on:

Luigi Scattola pos DOB 9, Mar 1883 (according to SS death record obtained on Archives), DOD, 1954-1956, POB Austria (Venice or Trieste), Mother is Maria Paoletich, Father Alojz Scattola (these names are listed on the U.S., SS applications and claims index).

Palma Scattola nee Hrelyanovich, no vital information available

Little background, Luigi, an Italian Citizen living and working in (Fiume) Yugoslavia and spouse left in 1945 for political reasons and returned to Italy.  Between May 10, 1945-Sept, 1954 they came to America on the immigration quote. After 16 months they returned to Parma, Italy where they both died sometime between 1954-1956. These are my great grandparents. Any help provided is appreciated I am at my wits-end trying to find any information on them. I know they are buried somewhere in Italy. I've visited their resting place but its not recorded on photo it has to be either, Parma or Genoa.

Greatful for any help or guidance.

Hi

The Birth in Italy in 1883 should be available online either on antenati or on familysearch.
On familysearch maybe you won't find it with the search form but if you search in the catalog.

For Trieste there are church books of several churches (only marriages online) and also of the Austrian Army.

You say POB Austria (Venice or Trieste), but I found the surname Scattola in Tezze sul Brenta, Vicenza, Veneto, Italia, could this also be a possibility?

Regards

Hi Svenja,
You have given me a lot of info and will try and see what I can find out here in Italy and through other ways on the internet.  I would point out given the COVID virus Italy is in partial "lockdown".  The Region we are looking at is in the "Red Zone" and therefore will be very difficult to get a reply.  But I will try.
Leave it with me and I will get back to you .

Hi,

Scattola in Tezze sul Brenta, Vicenza, Vento, Italia could actually be who I'm searching for. My mother (now deceased) wrote down some basic information that he was born in Venice but I couldn't find proof. As with Rootschat, Antenati and Familysearch, I fail miserably when it comes to searching documents. I'm not even sure I am responding to your post correctly. I've even tried looking in all the possible resting places in Italy that I can think where they might be to help give me some information. I will try to look further on my own, but anymore help you can give is very much appreciated.

Kindest Regards,
Amy

Hi Amy,
Sorry not back to you earlier.  Have been busy translating some legal documents for a lawyer here.

A question; you say you visited their resting place which is either Parma or Genova.   I will try and look up in Parma and Genova.

See what else I can turn up using the internet.  Unfortunately due to the virus it is very hard to get through to local governemnt offices at the moment.

Don't dispair - I've been flying about for years on some of my ancestors.  Vanished into thin air probally :)

Regards
Steve
PS. If anything comes to mind no matter how trivial let me know.

Hi Amy,
Just found from FindMyPast that a Luigi Scattola went to the USA in 1923.  I am not subscribed so cannot get  the info from "US Passenger & Crew Lists".   I went on Ellis Island, but nothing comes up.

The Luigi Scattola you found in 1923 passenger list is actually my grandmother who immigrated. From the time she immigrated, she hadn't seen her parents until 1954 when they came to America for what was suppose to be a move, it so turns out they were not exactly happy the short time they were here and wanted to return. I do have a copy of her on the passenger list and the name of the ship and who her sponsor was (my great uncle Michael Hrelyanovich) her mother's brother.

The information you found in the Cemetery, I haven't looked at yet but will shortly. I am hoping that it is them. I received a reply from my very first inquiry from Svenja that found the surname Scattola in Tezze sul Brenta Vicenza, Veneto, Italia. I looked at the record but nothing makes sense to me.

If any small detail comes to mind I will pass it on to you

Thanks for the help you have given me...
