Bonafede/ Buonafede

Postby rachie » 17 Aug 2008, 20:03

I think I may have found a ship record for my great grandpa but I was wondering if anyone else can help out with information. Grandpa's name was Samuel Bonafede (spelled Buonafede in the states) he was born Nov. 1916 in Chicago and his parents were Maria R. Nuccio and Calcidonio Bonafede (again Buonafede once they came over) he was the middle child with. The oldest was Nancy, JImmy, Samuel, Louis and then Carlo. Any help or information would be great!
Thanks

As far as I know they are from Campofelice di Roccela for Nuccio I'm not really sure. The ship record I found listed a different city (but was still in Palermo Province)

Scillato is in the province of Palermo. Perhaps that was just his last residence.

Did they marry in Italy or in the US?

I have no idea on the marriage. I know that Maria died in 1936 and I found the death record but it gives no age.

Sorry I'm pretty new. what does the Na AND Al mean after each?
immig 1910, Na
immig 1911, Al
I'm guessing it's their citizenship status??

You're right :D ,
Na = naturalized US citizen,
Al = alien, not sure why Maria would have this notation
