Where the heck is Baia Santino or Bai Atine?

Postby ritzbaby » 29 Aug 2008, 23:33

I have been sucked into the geneology vortex and can't get out....this stuff is addicting.

Anyway, I am stumped. I am working on getting all the info my dad and I need for dual citizenship. So far, I have his parents birth certs, and thanks to your help have their wedding cert on order and also both of THEIR parents wedding certs (all were New Haven, CT).

THEIR parents were all from Italy (so all of my dad's grandparents). I am trying to figure out exactly where in Italy so I can order their birth certs, etc. I am clear on all but one....

One of the grandparents is Serafino (Samuel) Nacca, born 7/16/1887, arrived with his sister Assunta (born in 1882) on the Lombardia from Naples May 22, 1902. Then moved to New Haven, CT.

On his daughter's (my grandma's/my dad's mom's) birth cert, the midwife handwrote his birthplace as Bai Atine.

On a later draft document HE handwrote his birthplace as Baia Santino.

I can find neither!! I figured out that Baia is "Bay" and I found a Santino but it is no where near water, so the bay part does not make sense to me.

Anyone have any idea about this? I tried to search more on Assunta in case there was more clarification on her records but all I find on her is the same manifest which doesn't help. Thanks in advance, the info here is incredible!

Baia E Latina, Postale 81010, Provincia Caserta is a comune. Is this it? =Peter=

vj thanks for all the links. I think that maybe the 2nd draft card is possibly not him...different birth year and Nack as last name? But maybe those types of mistakes are normal?

Peter thanks, looks like a strong possibility, we do know he is from the Naples vicinity.

My dad is checking too and found the following and seems to think this is it (it is SOOO nice there-beware before you click!):
http://www.encyclopedia.com/doc/1E1-Baia.html
The Columbia Encyclopedia, Sixth Edition | Date: 2008
Baia , Lat. Baiae, village, in Campania, S Italy, on the Bay of Naples.

However, I am still very confused about the Satino on the draft card and Atine on the birth cert. Also I do not know what the Lat. is in the encyclopedia name.

Thoughts on this?

Dear ritzbaby sorry to inform you that Baia is a "frazione" ( frazione=neighborhood, suburb absorbed by larger town) which in your case is BACOLI, Postale 80070, Province of Napoli..... =Peter=

Never mind on my draft card comment. For whatever reason they are also Nack on the 1920 census which is why I could not find that. Thank you VJ. So I think that is definitely his draft card. Why oh why does everything have to always be just slightly off!!

So Peter by george I think you've got it.

(and bummer about Baia :) )
