Hello! My name is Linda Pezzi and I live in Montreal. I have been researching my family tree for about two years and this group was suggested to me by a RootsTech geneaologist. I am hoping to find information on a particular "brickwall" in my family tree: my great-great grandmother, '''Rosina Cirelli'''. I would like to find where she was born and who her parents were. By 1900, she was living in Lago, Cosenza, Calabria when she had one daughter (Maddalena Maria Cirelli) with her common-law partner. She was 28 at the time so I approximated her birth year as 1872. Her daughter's birth and baptismal record state that the father is unknown but unrelated to her. It also states she has a residence in Verbicaro but is now in Lago. I have checked the birth records for a seven year stretch in Verbicaro to no avail. Family members say she collected and sold women's dresses (straccivendola) as a traveling merchant and her partner made and repaired umbrellas (ombrellaio). They met at the Arcavacata market in San Stefano. At the time of her death, she was living in Spezzano della Sila. She died in a Cosenza hospital of a kidney ailment in approximately 1945. Many thanks in advance for any help!
