Does anyone know all the dates for the larger earthquakes that affected Southern Italy? These are the dates I came up with:
February 5 through March 28, 1783
October 12, 1835
February 12, 1854
September 8, 1905
December 28, 1908
Am I missing any? I want to look for Marie's g grandparents death records but she doesn't know the year - only that an earthquake was involved.
Thanks.

Ciao Marcello,

Don't worry about translating the dates..many of us can understand them and we ca always ask if we have any questions. I also hope you feel comfortable to write in Italian when ever you like since many of our friends here read, write and speak both English and Italian. The rest of us are learning...so write in both languages and we can help each other. kiss

Wow, thanks. Yes, I know dates in Italian from all the documents I have transcribed. I am interested in earthquakes in Calabria as part of my family research. I missed the 1907 quake. That is interesting because 1907 was a bad year for my family - lots of them died that year including my great grandmother who was about 36 at the time. I'll have to go back and look at the exact dates. Do you know of any websites (preferably in english) that give details about these quakes? I really want to learn more. I also want to compare those dates with the death records for the same time period. Thanks.

Thanks so much. Those links are really helpful. I plan this week on examining the death records around the earthquake dates to see how they affected the town.

Cathy,

Nuccia posted a link a while ago to the Library of Congress's online newspaper collection. I searched for newspaper articles for information that appeared in various US newspaperswhere the words earthquake and Calabria occurred. Here's the results.

Historical American Newspapers at the Library of Congress

Happy reading.

Cathy - these two sites might be of some interest with dates etc. They are from Italian sites though. I was going to look for items in Italian about possible epidemics at around the period your grandfather died but wasn't sure of the date....

Biff, thanks so much for that link - I forgot all about that site! Embarassed I found a great article. Very informative and interesting! Gave me a lot of information I was looking for. Nuccia: One of the headlines said "Reggio Wiped Out". You may want to look at that too. I'm going to check out Carole's links now.

Can you send me the link to the article, Cathy? I am about to be banned from the computer so I have very limited time to look through the articles right now... Embarassed

But I am dying to see it!

This article from the Washington Hearald in regarding the December, 1908 quake. You can see it here: www.loc.gov/chroniclin...&mode=list

Choose the Adobe acrobat format or you will never be able to read the small print! Shocked

Thank you all so much. I checked out all your links, many of which lead to other links. I have been searching for months and did not come up with much. I have a lot of information now. Carole, one of your links included information on colera epidemics - that was vey interesting too and next on my list to learn about - plagues, diseases, epidemics and famine. Shocked

Hi Cathy,

Have you found a way to blow this up to make it readable? I tried printing it out on "best quality" but it is too small and too light to read.

thanks, Charlie

Charliemis,
If you are refering to the newspaper archives, click on the Adobe Acrobat option. You can view at 100% and it is much better. Please note that some of the newspaper editions have up to 4 pages from the same paper so view them in order. It is so interesting to read what the press said 100 years ago!
