Scott PATRICK (#4819) has completed going through the films for his
ancestral town of PIETRAPERTOA [ PZ BA ], finding records for a few
more distant relatives.
He also was recently contacted by another person with GARAGUSO ancestors from Pietrapertosa. This person mentioned having filmed records from the Catasti Oncian from Pietrapertosa [ collected in 1748 and 1779 ], and provided a link that gives information about these documents at www.italyworldclub.com/genealogy/catasti. It turned out to be records collected for tax purposes starting in 1742 for the Kingdom of Naples. After learning the names of some of Scott's relatives, he was sent a link to several pages that showed a few of the relatives. Scott even got the names of a few 6th-great-grandparents : Carmine RENNA and his wife Angela DEMA.
Jeanie MARSALIA [ #4251 ] received a postcard from Margherita Marsaglia
CAGNOLA from Caselle, Torino, Italy, whom she believes to be a family
relative. Margherita wished Jeanie a Happy New Year, and let her know
that her health had prevented her from sending holiday greetings
earlier, all in Italian.
Jeanie, with her dual citizenship, voted in the recent elections for the Italian Parliament.
She passed around pictures of her son, Shane Mahon, who was in Norway on business.
