mazzarella family

Postby lpaige » 25 Sep 2008, 18:18

I am looking for information about my grandfather Antonio Mazzarella. He was born in 1866 in Venticano. I believe he came to NYC in about 1905. His first wife was Emila (amelia). They had 4 children, Fausta, giovanna, guiseppie and virginia. When his first wife died he married her sister, my grandmother Virginia Di Iorio Puzo. They had one child together my father Anthony born in 1919. I have never met any of my Mazzarella relations, only the Puzo side. Any information would be appreciated since I have been trying for years and can't find anything. Thanks. Louise

Hello, you can request, writing a letter in Italian the birth certificates of Anthony, Amelia, Virginia and Fausta. Also you can request both of his marriage records, to

Comune
Ufficio di Stato civile
Piazza A. Verardo
83030 Venticano (AV)
Italy

anagrafe@comune.venticano.av.it (no spaces)

or you can request them to Archivio di Stato di Avellino

I hope it helps
bye Riccardo :lol:

Possible birth record for Faustina Mazzarella from Ancestry.com:

Faustine Mazzarello 12 Mar 1894 Certificate# 12868

If this is the correct Faustina, then the 1910 census incorrectly shows her birthplace as Italy.

Possible manifest 1913 manifest for Faustina with husband and daughter, lines 14 to 16
Page 1
Page 2
Faustina is on line 15.
Year of birth about 1894
Last residence: Avellino, Pietradefusi
Place of birth: New York
Destination: New York NY, father Antonio Mazzarelli, 58 Sullivan St.
Husband on line 14: Pasquale Pascucci
Daughter on line 16: Elisabetta Pascucci

Valarie,

Nice manifest finds! :D

Based on the manifests you found, it appears the information I posted above on Faustina Mazzarella is not the same person as Antonio and Emelia's daughter Fausta.

I think the 1913 manifest is correct :D , pg 2 birthplace is probably an error?
In US 1894-1912?

Here's a 1930 census for the Pasquale Pascucci and Antonio Mazzarella families. Looks like the Faustina I located wasn't Antonio and Emilia's daughter after all. Husband Pasquale Pascucci is on the previous page. There's a marriage record on IGG for a Pasquale Pascucci and a Maria (Faustina?) Mazzarella.
