Hi to all,
I am relatively new to doing ancestral research and really new to learing of this 6th gr. grandfather. His name is Nicola Valaga/Valega and was born in Italy in 1807. I have found records showing that he came to US about 1829 and can't locate any info. on him except tax records from 1850's in Iberville Parish and the 1860 Fed. Census where he was married to Eugenie ? (b. in LA about 1802) with 3 children: Nicola, Jr., Celestine and Augustine in Plaquemine, Iberville Par., LA. How can I go about finding additional info. on him and his wife's maiden name? I have done searches for his name on the federal 1830/40/50 Census' and can't come up with anything matching his name in LA or USA. Any help on my next step and thanks for the advice.
