I am searching for my late grandfather. All I know is he imigrated to Venezuela around 1947. The family in Italy was told he died but there was never a death certificate issued. His Name is LUIGI ROSCIO born 1913?. He left a spouse and two children in Italy. I have not been able to trace any record of his travels or death.

  • Welcome to G&FH SE! As a new user be sure to take the Tour to learn about our focussed Q&A format. How do you know that he emigrated to Venzuela? And what is the basis for the date that you give for that? Do you have birth/baptism/marriage records for Luigi? I think your question would be more likely to attract potential answerers if you can edit it to provide more information about what you already know.

  • I know nothing. My mother was 6 years old. She rememembers going to the airport. But I cannot trace anything in Italy. She was told her died there but their was no death certificate issued. I suspect that he didn't die and that he did a runner. I have traced one Luigi to Brazil, but date of birth don't match. I have tried to contact the the Fondi council, but to no avail.

  • Where was he born/baptised, and where did he marry/live in Italy before emigrating? That information will be useful to try and establish his identity with any records found with the same or similar names.
