    I’m trying to find someone from Felice’ and Formoso’ Families in Mongrassano, Calabria, Italy. My grandfather name was Pietro Formoso (birth in 1892) who was married with Rosa Felice (birth in 1891) in Argentina.

    Please, I just would like to know if somebody has any information from these families living in Mongrassano.

    Hello, I am trying to search for the origins of my family who immigrated to Brazil circa 1900. My ancestors who possibly came from Mongrassano are Vincenzo Tedesco and Filomena Petta, one of their children was also born in Italy, Antonio Tedesco.

    Where would be a good place to start searching for evidence of those records?

    Thank you!

      You could try the offices of “il comune di Mongrassano”, you can find the telephone number by just googling the words above. Those names you mentioned are definitely from Mongrassano. I originate from there too and live in London >
      Hope you find what you are looking for.
