#6: Re: ancestry lookup Author: Eleven, Location: New YorkPosted: Thu May 26, 2011 11:28 pm ---- Wow, thanks so much for this. These people are making me crazy..lol
I would love to smack ancestry.com. They have every town/city in Potenza except Rionero and thats where this crew is from. This has me grasping every little morsel I can find. The FHL does have some records for rionero, but after having the pleasure of searching the online Italian records, I would never go to my FHL, which I understand now has you jumping thru hoops in order to copy anything.
Anyway, This morning, I found the 1905 NY state census for my great grandfather. There is this guy listed with his family, stating its his brother. But the wrong (I think) spelling, makes it his wifes brother. The correct spelling, according to me, would be Michele Tucciariello. They have it spelled Michele Pecciarello For 4 hours this morning and another 2 tonight, I searched every site offering indexes for ship passenger records. I even searched the morse site, by using the town name only, the first name with a few years, and then by initials. I think the guy swam here, because I cant find him. I cant even find him on another census.
I am not sure how this Michele fits in with Carmine, since this is one of those families with a second cousin marriage, plus a brother and sister marrying a brother and sister.
I cant understand why ancestry doesnt have the town records for this place. I believe its a decent sized city.
