CalvinTY, I have contacted you on here, and on 2 of your e-mail accounts about you sending me the photo of Dina Manfredini. I have been awaiting a reply for over a month now. You told me to ask you in a more private manner. If you would like, would you like for me to give you credit on the video for sending the photo to me? I have been waiting for so long.

As you know, I am making it for my 'Oldest validated living people' video on Youtube, in which I am planning on posting it on November 28, 2010 after Pizzinato hopefully becomes the oldest Italian ever.

Nick,

I have replied to your e-mail address twice with a photo link. I sent them over a month ago as well.

Looks like your e-mail address is not getting my e-mails?

Let me know if you still need me to resend (depending on if Robert has a better photo than what I have).

Regards,

* CalvinTy

Confirmed. Just checked my e-mail's Sent Items folder. The last two e-mails I sent was to you, LOL.

MON, 9/27 6:14AM EDT
FRI, 8/27 9:56AM EDT


You did not get either one of those e-mails? Weird.

Just wanted to give you this so you know that I actually HAVE seen your request and DID send them out.

Cheers,

Crap Calvin. Omg, I am so organized that I usually delete mail that I don't need quickly after. Please send one last time to me. I am sorry, it wont happen again. Thank you!

No problem. I re-sent the e-mail again.

No credit needed because I got it from the article back in April, and it is just one picture that is not a great one. I'll let you be the judge of that.

Perhaps Robert has more and better pictures.

Cheers,

Dina (née Guerri) Manfredini made it to 2011. An article, along with a new photo of her (in Italian), has an update on her status, and a biography about her life. The article was posted yesterday (January 14). http://www.ilrestodelcarlino.it/modena/cro...nni_mezzo.shtml

Someone save this photo!

The site somehow doesn't let you right click the image and save as... but I used print screen. Here's a back up.
user posted image

I also suggest you take a look at the article. A lot of info there.
http://translate.google.com/translate?js=n...nni_mezzo.shtml

Her tip is apparently don't stop working and keep in motion.
She seems to be in a good condition (we don't see a wheelchair in the image, not that this necessarily means she doesn't use one) and she said something like:

"Even now that are in a nursing home, I try to go downstairs alone without me to have breakfast in the Room " (she) recently told the Italian relatives.


Another point of interest:
"Dina was born in Casa War Pievepelago April 4, 1897, she married Riccardo Manfredini which December 22, 1920 emigrated to the United States had four children (two males and two females). He now lives in Johnston (Iowa)."

Doesn't that count her as Italian? Or if she has an American citizenship now we consider her American?

Clever, mr. slime.

I ALWAYS use print screen for my supercentenarian photos, so that I can crop them in Paint later on.

I'm actually not so sure of her ancestry. Pasqualina Franco was born in Italy, but later moved to Canada. You could tell she was Italian by her name, but it isn't nearly so easy with Dina Manfredini's name.

Actress Clara Blandick was ethnically American and died in California, but was born in Hong Kong, as her father was captaining a ship. Country of birth is often, but not always an indication of nationality.

Say you were born to ethnically Indian parents, natives of India, who gave birth to you while on holiday in France. When you are a child, you eventually emigrate with your parents to France. Your "country of birth" and "country of residence" are both listed as "France", but are you ethnically French? No.

Of note: She is the oldest Italian emigrant on record, in front of Amalia Barone, who also moved to the United States.

Can someone find a larger version of this photo?
