Thanks Tom..I checked the css and everything looks ok. Not sure why some PC's view it differently. I can only assume it may be a resolution issue with the different monitors...could this be possible?

steven,

Use this form to submit your names to me..

www.calabriaexchange.c...dback.html

Include only last names, province and Region plus the name you would like to be known by and a valid email address. I will add the names as I have time (some weeks are slower than others depending on how many names I have to add).

I will also try to remember to add lilbees names...sometimes I forget to check this thread for updates..always best to use the feedback form.

Thanks

I've just submitted an e-mail to have my maternal surname (Ali) added to the list. I'm hoping to find other members with the same surname. Smile

My grandfather (my father's father), Domenico De Sole, was born in Santa Severina on July 7, 1889. He emigrated to the states in 1910. He was married to Assunta Giacinto (from Crotone) on February, 1913 in Mesoraca in the province of Catanzaro. I think my grandmother was an orphan. I believe he had one or two brothers and a sister. They had settled in West Virginia, then my grandfather moved to Youngstown, Ohio to work on the railroad. His siblings moved back to Italy (at least a brother, who died there). I had originally gotten a statement of No Record from Mesoraca regarding his birth certificate and am currently waiting to hear from Santa Severina.

Good luck on your latest try MariLouise... do keep us updated.

Why not list the names you are researching as part of your 'signature' - that way anybody - even visitors can see and you never know (it HAS happened) someone might recognise one of your names. If you notice, we all do this, so why not you too..

(BTW I haven't forgotten that I still owe you an answer via e-mail!)

Grazie Carole!

Yes, I will update my info--thanks for the advice. And I look forward to hearing from you--you're a busy gal!

MariLouise
P.S. I think the province might be Catansare--?? Not sure.

MariLouise,

Your paternal grandfather was from Catanzaro? I am looking at his ship manifest as if I am reading it correctly, looks like it says he was born in Seminara (which is close to Soverato)

First Name: Domenico
Last Name: De Sole
Ethnicity: Italy
Last Place of Residence: Mesuraca, It.
Date of Arrival: Apr 03, 1910
Age at Arrival: 20Y Gender: M Marital Status: S
Ship of Travel: Principe De Piemonte
Port of Departure: Napoli
Manifest Line Number: 0020

Leaving sister Giuseppina behind, going to meet brother Francesco.

Looks like he may have been sent back so there must be another ship manifest we need to look for (if this is him).

Second ship Manifest:


New York Passenger Lists, 1820-1957
about Domenico De Sole
Name: Domenico De Sole
Arrival Date: 15 Jun 1913
Estimated Birth Year: abt 1890
Age: 23
Gender: Male
Port of Departure: Napoli
Ethnicity/Race-
/Nationality: Italian (South) (Italian)
Ship Name: Principe Di Piemonte
Search Ship Database: View the Principe Di Piemonte in the 'Passenger Ships and Images' database
Port of Arrival: New York, New York
NATIVITY: Italy
Line: 3
Microfilm Serial: T715
Microfilm Roll: T715_2105
Birth Location: Italy
Birth Location Other: mesuraca
Page Number: 18
Source Citation: Year: 1913; Microfilm serial: T715; Microfilm roll: T715_2105; Line: 3; .

I can not link the manifest but he states he was born in Mesuraca on this one, and that he is leaving his wife, Giacinata and going to his cousin in West Virginia. Hopefully someone can link for you.

If worse come to worse, you could try writing to the Archives in Catanzaro for his military draft registration records. That should list his birth place if I am not mistaken. Here's where we need our Italian friends to help.

His WW1 Draft Card:


World War I Draft Registration Cards, 1917-1918
about Dimeneco Sole
Name: Dimeneco Sole
County: Fayette
State: West Virginia
Birthplace: Italy
Birth Date: 1889

Clearly lists Catanzaro as his hometown. More and more I am starting to think writing to Catanzaro Comune a good idea.

Here is the ship manifest, he leaves his wife GIACINTA and reaches his cousin ROCCO MESURACA (same surname as for the town).
