Welcome Deborah! Its always nice to have new people join us. Can you be a bit more specific in your your research goals? What can we help you with? American, Italian, English records?

If you are able to tell us the names of your ancestors and approximate birth years we can better assist you.

Look forward to hearing more from you. Very Happy

Hello,

My husband's ancestors are:

Francesco Testa, born in Avellino in 1894 (his paternal grandfather)
Erberta Cozzi, born in Senerchia in 1868 (his maternal great-grandmother)
Domenico Polisciano, born in Campagna in 1965 (his maternal great-grandfather)
Erberta's and Domenico's daughter Giovanna, born in Campagna in 1906 (his maternal grandmother).

We're still trying to figure out who Francesco's parents are. We think his father's name was Sabino Testa, but we haven't found anything about his mother.

Francesco Testa - possible 1912 manifest.......lists father as Sabino.

Page 2
www.ellisisland.org/EI...&line=0017

There is a comune of Avellino and also a province named Avellino. Do you know Francesco was born in the comune of Avellino? If so I'll post the info for the LDS films for you. You should be able to find his birth act on the film and it will list his parents.

For Erberta Cozzi...........available LDS films that include birth, death, marriages etc. 1861-1910
www.familysearch.org/e...o+civile++

For Domenico Polisciano and daughter Giovanna (Campagna). Do you have any additional details that might give us a clue as to the comune each was born in?
Still looking for additional information, will post back in the morning.

Do you mean 1865?

Yes, I *definitely* meant 1865 for Domenico's birth year!

The 1912 passenger list is our Francesco. His father's name is Sabino (confirmed by his sister Olimpia, who came over to America much later). We haven't found anything about his mother. Francesco and Olimpia were born in the comune of Avellino, I'm fairly sure. And now that I have Francesco's naturalization papers (just arrived this week!) we know that his wife Jennie (Giovanna) was born in Campagna, Salerno. I am assuming that Domenico was, as well -- all of the information I have on him, from two separate arrivals in New York, lists Campagna as his residence.

I'm not familiar with the "LDS films". I know that the Mormons have a lot of information. Is it available to me? Online?

Thanks!!

For the LDS films. Find a Family History Center (FHC) near you. Here is the link...........
www.familysearch.org/e...et_fhc.asp

Decide which films you would like to order. Here is the list of films for Avellino - Civil records 1809-1899 - Birth (Nati), Death (Morti), Marriage (Matrimonio) etc.
www.familysearch.org/e...o+civile++

Write down the films you would like to view. Go to your FHC to order.
Cost is about $5.50 USD per film and takes about 4 weeks to receive. Films have to be viewed at your FHC.

For Campagna there aren't any films that I could find. I did find their official website. Maybe one of our members from Italy can look at the site and tell you if you can email a request to the anagrafe office for records.
www.comune.campagna.sa.it/

I hope this helps.
