Looking for Carla Dila

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.

Looking for Carla Dila

Postby MDilia » 14 Nov 2002, 21:50

Hello, <BR> <BR>My birth name is Martin Dilia. I was born in Hoboken, NJ in 1971 to Carla Dilia who was 17 years of age at the time. I was born at St. Mary\'s Hosptial in Hoboken. I was given away after birth to Mr. and Mrs. Emerito and Aida Rivera, but was never adopted. I have assumed the name Eddie M. Rivera because it was the only name I had in life until I was 18 years old. My mother Carla\'s birth place is listed as Italy on my birth record, but unfortunately that is all I have to go on. I have been searching for my mother for quite some time for any Dilia\'s in the East Coast area of the United States, but have not come up with any leads. I would truly love to get to know my birth mother, but if she wants her privacy I would only ask to please have some medical history from both sides of the family. <BR> <BR>Thank you, <BR>

Hello Peter,

I am sorry I had lost touch with this forum and information. I never did see the private message and was hoping you could still help me. Thank you.

We haven't seen Peter in many months, but perhaps he will reply to your post.

In the meantime, I wonder about the name, Dila, as I can find only one example of it in the current Italian telephone directory (and no Dilia's at all). Curiously however, I found this which may be of interest:

California Marriage Index, 1960-1985 about Carla J Dilla
Name: Carla J Dilla
Age: 26
Est. Birth: abt 1954
Spouse Name: Bradley P Gilbert
Spouse Age: 24
Date: 13 Dec 1980
Location: San Diego

What are the chances that this is your mother? I don't know...

See http://www.whitepages.com/name/Bradley-P-Gilbert/Irvine-CA/2qmm18v

I see that almost ten years have passed since you began this thread; have you had any further success in your search?

Hello, I have not had any luck finding her. I had one lead that thought my mother had stayed in New Jersey for two years, then went to Boston for two years and attended school before moving back to Italy. The source tried to contact who they had suspected, but the woman denied it was her. You did not find any Dilia's in the phone book, but my NJ birth certificate has Dilia on it. I am surprised there would not be any listed.

Thanks,

Ed

.

I would not rule out the marriage record I posted above.

The Italian telephone directory can be found at http://www.paginebianche.it/execute.cgi?iq=&ver=default&font=default&btt=1&l=en&mr=10&rk=&om=&qs=dilia&dv=

This site can also be helpful for testing names http://www.gens.labo.net/en/cognomi/genera.html.

Consider also the alternate spelling,"Di Lia". Other possibilities are Delia and De Lia, both of which are somewhat common in Italy.
