Ciao Valarie! :D

Or.... if Mike thinks that this could the right Angelo D'Amato it could be useful give a look at the Mormon's Microfilms about:

Topic Italy, Avellino, Montemiletto - Civil registration

Titles Registri dello stato civile, 1809-1899 Montemiletto (Avellino). Ufficio dello stato civile

Nati 1884-1899 Pubblicazioni 1866-1899 Matrimoni 1866-1899
FHL INTL
Film 1642233

where he can find Angelo's birth act listing also his parent names....

Laura :)

Hello Laura!
You're right, it's less expensive and Mike will have so much more
information if he rents and views those films.
Thanks :D , Valarie

I put all my comments in number form to make it easer to respond.

1.Laura that sounds good, how would I go about obtaining that?

2.As for any info about someone in Asbury Park must be relitive the one side of my family has lived there for a long time and my great uncle Angelo Warren((To vj)-must be named after his uncle Angelo D'amato, Pasqualinas son?Seems to happen alot in my family...) Still lives there

3.Asbury isn't that big how many people with the same name could there be who live there.

4.pink67, It should be right how many people with such similarity to my family could of lived in Asbury( a 2mi by 2mi town) I do notice they mess up names way to much in censuses, sometime i have only found a census because 1 persons name was right and the rest fit in because there birth date and the location of where the census takes place. The extra people maybe brown Relatives not brought by Pasqualina, possibly they got enough money to get them into the USA from Italy or whatever.

5. Vj I have seen other peoples family trees on ancestry.com and have sent them all messages that had similar trees as me to understand from where they got their infornmation, most of them don't have both G Brogna and J Brown

6. As for the WW1 Registration no one really knows about that in my family, not really a big thing tho because no one really knows How many children Pasqualina had, who she left behind, and who she has married. Second look at it... Asbury park must be a relative.

7. As for the 1930 census with Theresa, is 100% my great grandmother and Joe is my great grandfather,. My grandfather who lives with me was named after his father (I got all info to get about him already)

/offtopic- also my great uncle on my moms mothers side was on the giants... its always nice to have something really interesting in your family tree other then uncrackable immigration(lol) http://www.nj.com/giants/stats/index.ss ... =Al+Bedner

And I thank everyone for helping me.

Hi Mike,

just for answer to your 1. question.... I'm italian, living in Italy and I've never been in a Family History Center but I think that Valarie or some other members can explain you how to do...
However here is the link to find your nearest center:

http://www.familysearch.org/eng/library ... et_fhc.asp

here you can see what is a Family History Center:

http://www.familysearch.org/eng/library ... _about.asp

I'm sure you'll find Angelo D'Amato birth act and then with more dates (father and mother names) you'll be able to find also the other members....

Laura :D

Theresa Maria D'Amato was my grandmother. I was very close to her and my grandfather Joe Warren in Asbury Park NJ. First Pasquelina Ragna (D'Amato) when she immigrated to the US married a widower Giovantonio Brogna. He went by the name John Brown in the US but he shows up as Ande Brown in one Census and I have no idea why. My mother called them Grandma and Grandpa Brown. It is my understanding that Pasqualina had three children from her first marriage. Angelo Michael, Carmen, and Theresa Maria. She left Angelo (Her oldest) in Italy for unknown reasons. He immigrated later and I met him when I was a boy in the 1960's. The Brogna's in Asbury Park have an extensive genealogy on Theresa Maria. Theresa Maria Warren had five children, Frank, Angelo, Joseph, Margaret and Doris. I am Doris's son. I have a photograph of Pasqualina's first husband but no other information at all. I don't even know his name. any help would be appreciated. I am working on the Warren genealogy.

Well its crazy how much (or little) changes in 6 years. Anyway I recently got around to looking at the records from Montimeletto Italy and found Pasqualina's first husband, his name was Michael Angelo D'Amato, go figure. I also have his parents names working that out.
