Africa-Canada-Hungary-Ireland-Italy-United States

Amateur genealogists, and newbees like myself, find research in foreign countries challenging. Actually, daunting is more like it. Where does one begin? As a first step, I've added this link to my "Home Page." I intend to leave my footsteps with the help of the internet and my URL across the countries that are hiding my roots. Should you see my page and have suggestions, please don't hesitate to e-mail.












THE LUNG FAMILY IN HUNGARY

John LUNG
b. abt 1870 Hungary
d. abt 1932 Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada
m. Mary MITCHELL
Children: John, Peter b. 1898, Mary, Lena, and Nicholas.
John & Mary immigrated to Canada via a cattle boat somewhere between 1906-1916. All of their children were born in Hungary. Peter b. 1898 is my father. The town where he was born no longer exists. It did not survive WW1. His home was near the border of Austria and Hungary, in the Banat Region, and near a large river. He moved from Canada to the United States. His US citizenship papers and death certificate simply say, "born in Hungary."



THE DINA FAMILY IN ITALY

Dominick DINA
b. abt 1862
d. Chicago, Illinois
m. Rosario TROGROSSA
b. abt 1860
d. Chicago, Illinois
Children: Michael b. 1884, Peter 1892, and possibly more all born Italy.
This family came to Chicago, Illinois about 1900 from Palermo, Sicily.


THE RESCIGNO FAMILY FROM ITALY TO AFRICA TO THE UNITED STATES

b. abt 1860
d. unknown
m. Angela MORNO
b. abt 1860
d. unknown
Children: Anthony, Guiseppa(Josephine) b. 1883, Charles, and Genevieve
Antonio and Angela never made it to the United States. They did move to Africa, maybe Italian Algiers or Tunisia. All of the children immigrate to Illinois. Guiseppa my grandmother married Michael DINA and lived in Chicago. She recalls being raised in Africa. The camels, burying food stuffs in the sand, and people climbling palm trees as lookouts were a few of her childhood memories. Charlie lived in the Waukegan area. Genevieve & Charlie are sponsors for my mothers' baptism.
