Suanj, Thank you for your recent information. I would have never found my "family" in the 1900 census if not for you. I do know Dominick's fathers name was Pietro Masciarelli and he married Palmina Ciquoria. Not sure if they came to America, still rescearching. Can you suggest where in Abruzzo I should write to get further information. Thank you in advance for your help. GGG
Hi, I know not with precision where Domenico Masciarella and Concetta( Marchetti, Marchitti, Marchitto???)was born, but I found: Name: Domenico Antonio Masciarelli Gender: Male Baptism/Christening Date: 08 Dec 1851 Baptism/Christening Place: PALENA,CHIETI,ITALY Birth Date: 07 Dec 1851 Birthplace: Death Date: Name Note: Race: Father's Name: Pietro Masciarelli Father's Birthplace: Father's Age: Mother's Name: Palma Cacchione Mother's Birthplace: Mother's Age: Indexing Project (Batch) Number: C84201-1
System Origin: Italy-ODM Source Film Number: unknown Reference Number:
it is hard to say if it is the right Domenico or not...
however a Angela Masciarelli, from Palena, immigrated in USA and joining at uncle Falco Masciarelli in 146 School st, Yonkers NY: http://www.ellisisland.org/EIFile/popup ... &line=0002 so maybe the Masciarellis in Yonkers was all of same birth place, it is possible... Falco immigrated in 1893 with wife Teresa and daughter Rosa..
http://www.ellisisland.org/search/shipM ... 3589130719 previous trip: New York Passenger Lists, 1820-1957 about Falco Masciarelli Name: Falco Masciarelli Arrival Date: 6 Jun 1887 Birth Year: abt 1845 Age: 42 Gender: Male Ethnicity/Race¬/Nationality: Italian Place of Origin: Italy Port of Departure: Naples, Italy Destination: New York Port of Arrival: New York Port Arrival State: New York Port Arrival Country: United States Ship Name: Australia
so all it is possible: Domenico born in Palena and married in Lanciano, where Concetta was born? It is Possible because in Palena no one with Concetta maiden name, but in Lanciano are the Marchitti surname, and in 1890 a Marchitti emigrated: MARCHITTI GIULIO 46 M 18 Aug 1890 LANCIANO
For bad luck I cannot find the arrival of Concetta, and Maria and Francesco, that could be helpful, as a well I cannot find Francesco Masciarelli WWII draft registration card, hoping birthplace mentioned...
Also Maria Masciarelli husband, Domenico Mammarella, surely came of same Masciarelli birth area; by 1910 census we can know more abt Domenico Mammarella: 1910 United States Federal Census about Domenick Mamarillo Name: Domenick Mamarillo Age in 1910: 24 Birth Year: 1886 Birthplace: Italy Home in 1910: Yonkers Ward 7, Westchester, New York Race: White Gender: Male Immigration Year: 1900 Relation to Head of House: Son Marital Status: Married Father's Name: Petro Mamarillo Father's Birthplace: Italy Mother's Name: Filomena Mamarillo Mother's Birthplace: Italy Neighbors: View others on page Household Members: Name Age Petro Mamarillo 60 imm. 1894 Filomena Mamarillo 58 imm. 1901 Domenick Mamarillo 24 Marietta Mamarillo 27 Constantine Mamarillo 31 Gioseppina Mamarillo 29 Vincentina Mamarillo 16 Michelina Mamarillo 23 daughter in law Fannie Mamarillo 5 grandaughter
before of to write in some commune in the probable birth area I believe that is better to search more, especially for to find Francesco Masciarelli arrival, maybe travelling under mother maiden name, and also searching the WWII draft registration card, hoping abt birthplace listed... the surnames, Masciarelli and Mammarella as a well Marchitti ( various versions) are popular in all Chieti area near on on Adriatic sea coast.. regards, suanj the birth area must be between
Hello again Suanj, I trust you are well. Since Dec. I have found much information on Dominick (my great-grandfather) and his father, grandfathers before him. I am now looking for Dominick's wife, Concetta. I believe she to be Maria Concetta Lucia Marchetti, born Dec 13 1856 in Civile, Foggia, Foggia, Italy. Father, Domenico Marchetti and mother Serafina Nataccio. How would I go about finding out if Dominick and Concetta were married in Abruzzo or Foggia and perhaps marriage license or church records??? Thanking you in advance for any insight you might give. GGG
I have some perplexity abt Foggia birthplace of Concetta... just searching the marriage act and the marriage bann( more infos are in the bann) of Domenico and Concetta you can have the right reply; by LDS the Palena civil records microfilms

Thank you, Suanj....Yes, I believe 1879 is the marriage date. They had 2 children in Italy, Francesco, born Oct 2 1883, and Mary, born May 4, 1886. I have conflicting dates of immigration to America, 1889 or 1891 and as of yet have not found any documentation at Ellis Island or Castle Garden/Barge office. Wishing you a beautiful day. GGG
