Vito Morgese US via Bari - seek Joseph, Antonio, Leonardo

Postby vmor1996 » 09 Sep 2008, 14:41

My name is Vito Francis Morgese I live in NY, US. My Grandfather Vito was from Bari, born February 1892 and came to the US through Ellis Island in 1919. He married Anna Palmitessa, also from Bari and he had three brothers. Joseph, Antonio and Leonardo.

I am trying to find anyone in Italy that may be related to our family. There are allot of Morgese's in the US but my father and uncles(Joseph, Leonard, Anthony) have told me thet none of the other 3 brothers came to the US.

I do know that the family owned an Olive grove that was subsequently taken away around the time of the first world war.

Vito and Anna had 4 boys all whom are still alive and adopted and brought to the US a girl from Bari named Delores around 1950. The 4 brothers got married and had a total of 16 children, Delores had two more children.

Vito lived in NYC, Skaneatles NY and Syracuse NY. He died in 1977, Anna died in 1990.

I thank anyone that can help.

Do you have Vito's Ellis Island manifest? That is a good place to start looking for clues. If you have it can you post it for us. I was not able to find a manifest with the specific dates you gave.

Did he marry Anna in Italy or in America?

Ciao Laura,


I saw that 1910 manifest, but did not post it because of the date. I think it is the right one, but wanted to corfirm the date with Vito. However, the 1930 census confirms the 1910 manifest. Also that manifest would prove that the brother Giuseppe also emigrated.

Hi,
Vito Morgese was also from Monopoli, his father's name is Giuseppe.
Vito goes to USA thru Ellis Island on 1910 and he goes to live with hisa brother Giuseppe

http://www.ellisisland.org/search/shipM ... 0682%2ETIF

page 2
http://www.ellisisland.org/search/shipM ... 0682%2ETIF

So I suggest you to contact Vital statistics office of Monopoli in order to know if there is any living descendent of Giuseppe, Leonardo and Antonio
Write only in italian to

Comune
Ufficio Servizi Demografici
Piazza Garibaldi 6
70043 monopoli (BA)
Italy

Request "Certificato Storico di Famiglia" - Historical family certificate, in order to know infos about Vito's siblings and if there is any descendent of them still living in that town.
Usually this kind of certificate costs € 15 euros + €3/ € 6 euros per each name found.

Or you can write a letter in italian to all the Morgese still living in Monopoli
