    Default Gardens of stone

    Hi I've just come across this reference to the gardens of stone as a relation of mine came from Christian St we are quite suprised as we have heard this only as a slang reference. I come from Glasgow originally the rest of my family are from Christian St and surrounding area of liverpool, are the gdns of stone featuring the area I mentioned and if so do I need tickets to the showing as my brothers and two uncles would be coming as well. looking forward to seeing this as I have heard so much about the place and people I will be able to see for my self these memories that my family use to talk about

    I took some photos of the screening but haven't got them on my pc as yet. Lots of people came up to Paul and I at the end, there's always good feedback. Most notably, quite a few people who have seen Terence Davies film said it wasn't a patch on Paul's which is praise indeed and coming from Livepool Historical Society and Athenaum members too.

    Is Debz going to post her pics up, saw her taking a few too.

    Hello TravisT.

    Sorry, only just seen your post, possibly in moderation at some point then popped up behind the more recent postings.

    Gardens of Stone is primarily about the Christian Street area, giving an account of living in Gerard Gardens and the surrounding area from the early 1900s through to today.

    For further information please see my website linked below which shows a residents listing of Christian Street from 1963 and which in turn will link you to Gardens of stone information.

    All the best,

    Ged.

    Your family were southerners and they were more likely to have come from one of two villages in the Lazio region, which are Atina and Picinisco. A quick search discovers your family were living in Vauxhall ward and not Little Italy?s St Ann?s ward this could have been due to the work your gggrandfather undertook such as working on the docks etc.
    In order to find the correct spelling of the name and birthplace requires applications via Italy and unfortunately this can take a long time. Try this site, which is always a good place to start? forum.picinisco.net
    I was talking with a relative of yours today called Angela who works for the Culture Company, she was at the James William Carling street pavement art competition in Bold Street, maybe you know her.
    I have yet to come across your name even when I was researching my Liverpool?s Italian families book, another place to try is Scottie Press online forum.
    Hope this helps
    Debra D?Annunzio
    hi debra,
    and thankyou for your reply,
    sorry its taken so long for me to get back to you, you made a couple of very good suggestions which i will now follow up, i am going to go to the registrar office in old hall st to get matthews marriage cert.
    to be able to get his birth cert i would have to know the province in which he was born naples is not good enough and as i dont know the province i will have to start with the marriage cert and see what info i can gain from that then maybe i can move on with my research.
    you are right about the misspelling of the names,as, over the years on each of the census matthews surname has been spelt differently.
    i had a reply to a post on another italian website which said the name castellian does not exsist in naples and it was probably castellano!!! but as i said i will just have to wait to see what is on the marriage cert.
    as for the bit about being with my cousin angela could you shed a bit more light on thet one please as i dont know of a cousin of mine called angela but now im wondering who she is!!!
    thanks again for your help
    pat.

    Default DOM VOLANTE

    Dominic Volante, one of fourteen children born to Italian immigrant parents Maria Grazia D'Annunzio and Vincenzo Volante, quickly became a professional boxer and was lovingly known as 'The people's champion'. Dom will be immortalized in a plaque, the manufacture of which has been kindly donated by Paolo Grassi of Welsby Memorials and a boxing trophy donated by The Lord Mayor of Liverpool, Steve Rotheram. Both the plaque and trophy will be blessed at a special mass (10.15am) at St Francis Xavier's Church, Langsdale Street on the 29th of March 2009 and unveiled on Friday 17th April within the Salisbury Boxing Club, Salisbury Street, Liverpool 3. The trophy will become an annual award for the club's competitive boxers. Debra D'Annunzio dmdanunz@hotmail.co.uk
