Foresters of America, Camillo Cavour Chapter #56 in Riverton Illinois

The Foresters of America were a fraternal organization dedicated to the forestry industry.  Comprised of male members, Chapter #56 organized in Riverton, Illinois, in 1906 as a part of the national Foresters organization.  Membership applications cover 1906-1917 and are a part of the rich cultural history of Italian immigrants to central Illinois.  The following table was derived from the actual Applications for Membership in the possession of Robert Rusciolelli.  Calascio.com is very grateful to Mr. Rusciolelli for rescuing the documents and submitting them for public access.

 

Each Forester application is a two-sided document with genealogical dates as well as medical and lifestyle  information about the applicant.  In most cases the signature of the applicant is also provided.

 

Membership applications for Chapter #35 cover the years 1906-1917 and are a part of the rich cultural history of Italian immigrants to central Illinois

 

Thanks to Bill Cellini, Jr., for compiling the following table, that is alphabetized by  applicant surname.
