Born: 1856

Wife-

I am have a difficult time using the website index so I am reaching out for help!

Hi and welcome to Gente. Can I ask how you determined Francesco and Francesca were from Cosenza? The reason I ask is that Picorella is a common surname in Sicily and Peroni (Perone) is more common in Calabria. Perhaps you could give us a bit of background info on the children? Did they or there children ever come to the USA? What type of records have you already found? Have you placed them on a census? Could mis spellings of names factor in to this at all? Looking forward to hearing from you.

I found Jos/ James censuses, but I cannot find Pasquale ( male) in other censuses... so maybe he or died, or it was female and married...

I found a Pasqualina Picarelli born in Roggiano Gravina ( Cosenza province) travelling alone in 1898 and joining at father Francesco Picarelli in Philadelphia:
New York, Passenger Lists, 1820-1957 about Pasqualine Picarelli
Name: Pasqualine Picarelli
Arrival Date: 28 Oct 1898
Birth Date: abt 1879
Age: 19
Gender: Female
Ethnicity/ Nationality: Italian
Port of Departure: Naples, Italy
Port of Arrival: New York, New York
Ship Name: California


interactive.ancestry.c...turnRecord

Also I found that the same Pasqualina Picarelli married in Kansas City, MO at Nicola Maiarota; the info by this message:

boards.ancestry.co.uk/....picarelli
the marriage:
Missouri Marriage Records, 1805-2002 about Nicola Maiarota
Name: Nicola Maiarota
Marriage Date: 26 Dec 1899
Marriage Location: Jackson, Missouri
Marriage County: Jackson
Spouse Name: Miss Pazzaralina Picarelli
(Pasqualina Picarelli)

Nicola Maiarota was born in Roggiano Gravina also; naturalized in Missouri in 1904; Pasqualina maybe died young because he remarried at Maria Giuseppa ( maiden name unknown) and in a trip of 1915 the residence was in Missouri:
Nicola Maiarota, "New York, Passenger Arrival Lists (Ellis Island), 1892-1924"
Given Name: Nicola
Surname: Maiarota
Last Place of Residence: Jackson Co., Missouri
Event Date: 30 May 1915
Age: 29y
Nationality: Italy, Italian South
Departure Port: Naples
Arrival Port: New York
Gender: Male
Marital Status: M
Citizenship Status:
Ship Name: Madonna

back in Italy and again back in Philadelphia in 1924;

here the oldest son passport:
U.S. Passport Applications, 1795-1925 about Francesco Mario Maiarota
Name: Francesco Mario Maiarota
Birth Date: 11 May 1901
Birth Place: Kansas City, Missouri
Age: 22
Passport Issue Date: 13 Aug 1923
Passport Includes a Photo: Yes
Residence: Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Father Name: Nicola Maiarota
Father's Birth Location: Italy
Father's Residence: Rogiano, Gravina, Italy


the father trip, back in Philadelphia:

New York, Passenger Lists, 1820-1957 about Nicola Maiarota
Name: Nicola Maiarota
Arrival Date: 11 Jan 1924
Birth Date: abt 1876
Age: 48
Gender: Male
Port of Departure: Napoli
Port of Arrival: New York, New York
Ship Name: Conte Verde
with second wife Maria and other children;
I believe that Pasqualina Picarelli died young in Kansas City..


In Roggiano Gravina are the surnames:
Picarelli and Perrone

I found also a trip of:


First Name: Francesco
Last Name: Perrone
Ethnicity: Italy, Italian
Last Place of Residence: Rogiano
Date of Arrival: Dec 05, 1898
Age at Arrival: 35y Gender: M Marital Status: M
Ship of Travel: Hesperia
Port of Departure: Naples
Manifest Line Number: 0001

and joining at sister Maria Francesca Perrone in Philadelphia, PA

www.ellisisland.org/EI...;line=0001

now, if:

Anthony/Antonio Pickrell/Pickerollo (etc various spelling), was born in Pennsylvania in 1898:
Anthony Pickrell, "United States World War I Draft Registration Cards, 1917-1918"
Name: Anthony Pickrell
Event Type: Draft Registration
Event Date: 1917-1918
Event Place: Kansas City no 15, Missouri, United States
Gender: Male
Birth Date: 03 Apr 1898
Birthplace: , , United States
Nationality: United States
Affiliate Publication Title: World War I Selective Service System Draft Registration Cards
Affiliate Publication Number: M1509
GS Film number: 1683395

Digital Folder Number: 005151873

Image Number: 01095

so ... maybe he as born in Philadelphia, PA... and the above records could be abt your ancestors...

I found by Cosenza archive the draft registration card abt:
Codice SIAS IT-ASCS-F680258

Ufficio Leva della Provincia di Cosenza, Liste di Leva della classe 1856.Registro numero 41,
atto numero - di pagina 223 sezione -
Francesco Venanzio Picarelli, iscritto il --/--/----

nato il 21/05/1855 a ROGGIANO GRAVINA
da Domenico Antonio Picarelli e da Carolina Abate

PICARELLI Francesco Venanzio born in Roggiano Gravina on 21 may 1855 son of Domenico Picarelli and Carolina Abate...


but they are just my suggestions,
regards,
suanj

Suanj! Thank you! That's the correct information. The Kansas City, Missouri information would be my great grandfather. The info from Philadelphia would be my him and his father I believe.

I am getting all of my information from my grandmother and her cousins so thank you for helping where my dates or spelling may be wrong.

I will confirm this information tonight and post back as soon as possible.

What can I do with this information you have found? Can I go to the town and have these records printed? Anything similar?

So it looks like my family immigrated to the USA from Roggiano Gravina, Province of Cosenza, Italy. Is that right?

If so, are there any government buildings I could visit to have a look at official paperwork such as birth certificates? Or anything similar to that in the town?

I believe you could visit the Cosenza Archives and look up the info yourself. They would also provide you with copies of the records you want for a small fee

Ryan
Ryan, if you need of civil certificates you can write in Roggiano Gravina:
Servizi Demografici
Via Bufaletto 18
87017 Roggiano Gravina (CS)
Italy

or you can go



Instead, if you wish to search the original civil records, you can order and rent the microfilms of Roggiano Gravina civil records in the LDS center nearby your residence:
Registri dello stato civile di Roggiano Gravina (Cosenza), 1809-1910
Births, marriages, banns, marriage documents, deaths.

familysearch.org/searc...%20Library

They are the same civil records of Cosenza Archive... when you find the records of our ancestors, you can print it..

suanj
