Zambrotta from Sanza

Postby Dianeb » 28 Mar 2007, 17:24

I cannot find my grandmother Josephine (Gelsomina Zambrotta) at ellisisland.org nor castle Island. I know that she came to the US in 1898 or 1900. but I keep hitting a blank She is from Sanza. Where else can I look and where can I obtain a copy of her birth registration and my gr grandparents marriage certificate ?

Is this her (1930 census)? If it is, do you know her maiden name? Perhaps she traveled under her maiden name. Even if she already was married, it is custom for Italian women to use their maiden name for official documents, and married name for social occassions.

If it is Sanza, Salerno, you can get microfilm from the LDS library for the information if you want to have it for a family tree. See www.familysearch.org

If you need the documents for citizenship, you will have to write directly to the commune for an official copy.

That is her sister in law who married her brother Dominick. Zambrotta was her maiden name dob 1898 she was 1 or 2 when she came to Brooklyn NY. She married Salvatore Mistretta around 1916. Her mothres maiden name might be Maria Calabrese :( not sure yet. Thank you for the info on the records :lol: .
