Naturalization in Manhattan.......

Postby suanj » 31 Jan 2008, 17:01

Hi all, I found this record by stevemorse
Southern District (Manhattan, Bronx, Westchester) 1906-1959 :

PERRETTI Americo - age 34 - cert. n° 488119 - date 12/03/1945- birthyear 1911 ... I know that he came from Sao Paulo -Brazil in the 1928 with a cousin, both of italian origin( I have the ship's manifest) .... my problem is: I cannot find the same record on footnote.com and ditto on ancestry.com.... why..?
I believe that this database is available in both websites, but no result... some advice?
this free search is for a my friend genealogist, and after some year, finally I found that 2 cousins, Americo Perretti son of Ginevra Santina Bertotti, and the other , son of Celio Bertotti, both emigrated in USA ... abt the Celio Bertotti's son I found also the living relatives, but nothing abt Americo Perretti....... maybe he died unmarried....

I know that he died in 1946, 26 Feb in Manhattan, certificate number 5849, but I cannot find trace of Americo Perretti in 1930 census in all NY state and also in all states! I know that he lived some year in Brooklyn, and after in Manhattan... I have found no more abt this people, a big mystery....
advices?
thanks, suanj

suanj,
You're right the record should be on footnote, I
can't find it either. Not the first time IGG had it
& not footnote
(NY Southern District has no indexes on footnote
between 1930-1950)
No luck on a census either, very odd

I don't know if this is him or not, but take a look and see what you think.

Valarie

sounds like suanj's fellow:
http://boards.ancestry.com/surnames.perretti/21/mb.ashx
“he came to US on board the SS American Legion in June of 1928 from
Sao Paulo, Brazil. He was 16 at the time and was listed as a mechanic.
I'm looking for his date and place of death.
His father and mother are listed on his marriage certificate at Frank &
Genevieve (Leone) Perretti.â€

I'm glad I finally got a chance to help YOU after all the help and kindness you have shown me. :D

I cannot find nobody Mercine Perretti on ancestry.com... because I don't know her married surname... kisses and thanks, suanj
