    Hi. I’m looking to trace my family back to Italy. My great grandparents Carmeno Tamburrino and Vincenza Tamburrino (previously Pinto, maiden name Liccardo) married 6th December 1899 in Cervaro. I assume they’re from this town. He was born in 1873 and she was born in 1880. The moved to Scotland, UK some time after. I believe Vincenza also had a daughter from a previous relationship/marriage born in Italy called Francis.

    Carmeno could have been Carmine
    Tamburrino could have been Tamburrini

    I’d love some advice on where to start. I would like to visit and do some further research and a guide would be very helpful.

    I am trying to trace my great grandfather and his brother’s details.

    They were killed in World War 1 and are buried somewhere in the north of Italy. My father and his siblings are keen to discover where this is and visit the graves.

    The 3 brothers were born in Cervaro and lives at Foresta-mazzarella, Ihave details for 2 of the brothers below. Hopefully the 3rd can be found through records:

    Giuseppe Soave – born 1888
    Raffaele Soave – born 1892

    There were also civilians killed in World War 2 from this region with the same surname:

    Maria Soave
    Egidio Soave
    Raffaela Soave

    Any information and advice would be really helpful.

    • Judi says:

      Hi Peter – I saw that in 2016 you were looking for information on Soave family members from Cervaro. I know this is a a long shot but my husband’s grandmother, Angelina Soave, was from the Cervaro area. There were 12 children in the family and I know she had a brother named Giuseppe but I don’t know any other names other than her youngest sister was Maria. My husband’s grandmother married a Palumbo and moved to the U.S. but the rest of her siblings remained in Italy. Her niece, Anna Soave, married Giovanni Marrocco of Cervaro. I have so little information on that side of the family and am always hoping to make contact with someone else who is related and might be able to fill in some gaps. I’m happy to share what little information that I have. Thanks.

        Buongiorno Lori, sono residente in un villaggio francese dove un soldato italiano di nome Luigi Colacicco (come la vostra bisnonna) morì nel 1940 e che nacque a Cervaro il 7 aprile 1916. Sapete se era della vostra famiglia e se il suo corpo è stato rimpatriato in Italia? Perché nel cimitero del mio paese c’è il corpo di un milite ignoto che sto cercando di identificare. Per favore aiutami se puoi…
