Death information or Records

Over 25 million Italians have emigrated between 1861 and 1960 with a migration boom between 1871 and 1915 when over 13,5 million emigrants left the country for European and overseas destinations.

Death information or Records

Postby 5zoe16 » 23 Feb 2011, 19:35

I have located the burial for my relatives in New York. But, I cannot locate any information of their passing. My Uncle Anthony, was born in 1914 (I think in Manhattan) NY died in CA, but was buried in NY.
Anthony De Vito (Cemetery spelling) Divito age 22, date of burial June 15, 1936; Antonio Divito age 72, burial date March 10, 1927 and Theresa
De Vito (cemetery spelling) Divito, age 97, burial date December 16, 1927. All are located in Calvary Cemetery, Woodside, NY.

Only Anthony was US born, parents were Giuseppe Divito & Giuseppina Giordano, the others in Bella, PZ, Italy. These are the burial dates and not actual dates of death. I am also looking for the relationship of Theresa to Antonio.

Any and all help is appreciated.

You can search the NYC death index at the following website:

I am not finding the people you listed with dates close to the burial dates you give. The dates of death normally would be 2 to 3 days before the burial dates.

You would need to send for the death records of Antonio and Theresa who died in 1927 to determine their relationship.

Not sure if this addresses the question, but:

Mailing address:
Calvary Cemetery
49-02 Laurel Hill Blvd.
Flushing NY
11377-7396

Phone Number:
(718) 786-8000

To send for records: There are no records for 1848 to 1852.
There is a charge and you must know the date of death or burial.


I think cemeteries maintain copies of death certificates for those interred there, but cannot swear to that fact.
