ship info

Postby lcicchino » 03 Jul 2010, 16:10

I am searching for information regarding Nicola (Nicolas?) Cicchino. Born in Italy, we believe around the Compobasso area in 1876. Married to Isabelli (Isabella?) around 1900. Settled in Lambertville NJ. I have him in the 1930 census but can not trace him earlier. Any hints?

There are several NICOLA CICCHINO and all from CASTELPETROSO except for one from GESSOPALENA. Go to www.castlegarden.org and just put in Cicchino and click on the names as you see them for their particulars. =Peter=

Doesn't seem to match up with the 1930 census info I have. According to that document Nicola was aged 54 (born in 1876) and he and wife immigrated to US in 1904. These numbers don't match up with anyone on the Castlegarden website. Any other ideas?

Valerie, thanks for trying to help! I am basing my info off of the 1930 census which seems to match up names/dates etc. There was no one we know of "wife-Sonia" so I don't think this is the correct family(?). As for the 1905 manifest with Isabella Biondi, she would have been married as of 1900 but did they travel using their maiden name at that time (not married name of Cicchino)? But then again, on the 1930 census it states they immigrated in 1904. How accurate are these census records? Again, thanks for your help and ideas!

Hi!
Census records can be off a bit. The information was only as good as the person's (who was giving the information) memory or knowledge of the facts. Sometimes their ability to make themselves understood could have been a factor. The enumerator could have interviewed anyone in the house (including children) or neighbors...

In Italy women keep their maiden names for life. Normally she would have traveled under her maiden name and adopted the tradition of using her husband's surname once she was in the US.

OK, Valarie, If I can ask one more thing....having resolved the Nicola/Isabella question...am now searching for Antonio Eleuteri, again from Italy born around 1885-1890. Is named as father of Rose Eleuteri born 1909 in Bordentown NJ. Mother is named as Josephine Louvisi born in Italy about 1890, came over to US around 1903. I have Rose's birth certificate but believe Josephine never married Antonio as she married Joseph DiSalvi in 1910. I cannot trace any info for Antonio nor any info on immigration documentation for Josephine. Can you again offer any insight? Leigh

Hello Leigh :D
We would be happy to see what we can find.
Traffic on the forum is a bit slow today because of the long holiday weekend.
Valarie

Just for reference, is this the correct 1920 census?

As far as we can tell, all names on the 1920 census sound familiar and seem to fit except for the one "Barinte". My husband has never heard that name. Looking at the 1910 census I am totally confused now! Thanks for your help, will spend some time checking that info out now. Leigh
