Oggetto: Help finding Italian ancestor !
Iīm looking to find more information on my Italian ancestor.

So far I have only his death certificate.

From my family, its know that he was born on Veneto (probably on Verona or Treviso region). He died in Brazil in 1925 when he was 56 years old, therefore he should be borned around 1869 in italy.

His name is Joao (Giovanni) Curtolo, son of Luis (Luigi) Curtolo.

Thatīs all the info I have so far and I am stuck at this point.
Can anyone help me point out which direction should I take ?

Hello Laura

First of all, thank you for your help!

I come up with that database before, but I have no details on his mother name to prove that he is the one Iīm looking for (Hopefully he is).

As he got married around 21 years old in Brazil, we suppose that he went to Brazil in his middle 20 years old (or a bit before that), which consists with the date of this military call (1889), so as he just went to Brazil by that time he could not have turned up when the army called him.

Does the above assumption sounds correct?

I will try to find more details with the old family relatives that I know, maybe they have some more info about him, hopefully he is the one Iīm looking for.

You're welcome Danilo Very Happy

I would advice you to ask for his marriage documents in Brazil, I'm sure that he stated his mother's maiden name at the time of his marriage, so you will be able to confirm or not the above record. I'm pretty positive it's the right one ..

Did his father emigrate too?

dancurtolo - 01 Giu 2015 - 17:30
I truly hope so that he is the one, Iīll keep looking for his marriage documents. Itīs not so easy because at that time people used to get married only on churchs and not register at the official place in city.

therefore I will search it in the surrounding Churchs near my town.

as far as I know from what some old relatives told me, he came alone with his wife/girlfriend (she was from Verona). and there is no indication that his father went to Brazil also.

Once again thanks for your help Laura.

As soon as I get a more precise genealogy line, I will update it on here, as maybe some distant relatives of mine also want to know their History. Wink
