Hi there :!:

Is this the correct 1930 United States Federal Census Record?

Name: Nicholas Leone
Home in 1930: Manhattan, New York, New York
Age: 66
Estimated birth year: abt 1864
Birthplace: Italy
Relation to head-of-house: Head
Spouse's Name: Josephine
Race: White
Household Members:
Name Age
Nicholas Leone 66
Josephine Leone 45

May need help with the 1920 census record

Maria... :P

P.S. I can only link if the file is about 1mg... my PhotoShop isn't running at this time...

Further... this census record says that Nicola immigrated in 1910... the rest in 1911

Well.... the above family that I posted is on 105 St. between 1st and 2nd Avenues.... but not 18 West Street as you mentioned...

Can you list the members of the family... ??? That would help... maybe some birthdates too...

Maria

This is where I am now stumped...

You are here: Search > Census > U.S. Census > 1920 United States Federal Census > New York > New York > Manhattan Assembly District 18 > District 1259

East 105 Street house #79 ... the Grieco(a) Frank family...

I already did... see above...

The Grieco (a) family lives there...

BUT would really appreciate it if a forum member can check my findings...

A further search can be done for the 1920 census record... we've got some top-notch researchers here who can find a needle in a haystack!

Hey.... you have the boat record for this family :lol: ?? It may help with an address!

Please note that there is a gap between sons Antonio and Ignazio... like about 6 years... were there more siblings in this family??

Also... what town in Italy did they originate from??

Maria :P

Leone 1930 Census record

Name: Nicholas Leone (immigration 1910 - the rest ...1911)
Home in 1930: Manhattan, New York, New York
Age: 66
Estimated birth year: abt 1864
Birthplace: Italy
Relation to head-of-house: Head
Spouse's Name: Josephine
Race: White
Household Members:
Name Age
Nicholas Leone 66
Josephine Leone 45
Conchetta Leone 25
Ingnatzie Leone 22
Antonio Leone 16 (US BORN)...

Source Citation: Year: 1930; Census Place: Manhattan, New York, New York; Roll: 1571; Page: 4A; Enumeration District: 817; Image: 917.0.
------------------------------------
The only doubt is due to the fact that my family always used nicknames, Antonio is actually Gaetano (middle name was Anthony), and Ignatzie I believe to be my uncle Jackie. I don't know his legal name. Is Ignatzie an Italian name or is this simply a misspelling? Seems like it could be a variant of Igantius like Ignazio or Ignacio. Antonio's age would be a match and I know my family mentioned to me they lived near Harlem so 105 street would be a match.

Have you tried searching for naturalization records? Should list maiden name and town of origin.......social security application may list infos as well......and do not overlook church records. Obituaries are a good source for key info and usually list the church of which that person was a member.........

Remus, is this the manifest you're looking at?

page 1 http://ellisisland.org/EIFile/popup_wei ... &line=0005
page 2 http://ellisisland.org/EIFile/popup_wei ... &line=0005
SS San Giovanni 26 Jun 1912 Palermo to NY
- line 3 SORTINO, Geslala, 40 yrs old (1872)
joining husband Giocomo LEONE at 1091 2nd Ave
born in Caltagirone, Catania, Sicilia
- line 4 LEONE, Concettino, 7 yrs old (1905)
joining father Giocomo LEONE at 1091 2nd Ave
born in Piarra? Piazza?, Caltanissetta, Sicilia
- line 5 LEONE, Ignaro, 4 yrs old (1908)
joining father Giocomo LEONE at 1091 2nd Ave
born in Piarra? Piazza?, Caltanissetta, Sicilia

Possible answer to your question (1)
- it is unlikely a family from Calabria would be living in Sicily. Note manifest page 1 states no relation living in town of residence in Sicily... page 2 states they were all born in Sicily.

Possible answer to your question (2)
- on this manifest the mother of 'Concettino' & 'Ignaro' is Geslala SORTINO - not Giuseppa (Josephine)

Answer to your question (3)
- wldspirit stated it best!
"Have you tried searching for naturalization records? Should list maiden name and town of origin.......social security application may list infos as well......and do not overlook church records. Obituaries are a good source for key info and usually list the church of which that person was a member.........

It may help us help you if you let us know what confirmed or primary records you already have: Family names, birth dates & locations, siblings, spouses, etc.

Thanks! vj
