Blasi-Votta family from Paterno di Lucania and Moliterno

Posted by Robert Sanders on December 27, 2009 at 15:22:10:

My 2nd great grandparents were born in Paterno di Lucania and Marsico Nuovo, Potenza, Italy. Michele Blasi (born 7 September 1850 in Paterno di Lucania) was married to Rosaria Votta (born 1855 in Marsico Nuovo). They had five children: Carmela Blasi (1880), Maria Antonia Blasi (1883), Gianuario Blasi (or John Blasi) (1892), Angelo Blasi (1897), and Raffaele Blasi (1901).

I have some documents on this family but I would like to know more about Michele Blasi's and Rosaria Votta's parents and what came of their children.

Update from Forums' Editor

From the civil records online at
    Paterno di Lucania was included in Marsico Nuovo until 1973
  • Marsico Nuovo birth 5 Sept 1850 no. 254, img 256: Michele Blasi of Francesco of Saverio 28 and Maria Antonia Zio 26
  • In 1855 there is no Votta Rosaria, but a Maria Rosa; being the surname common, more info is necessary.
