Postby anac » 27 Sep 2008, 02:52

Hello i`m ANA DI GERONIMO from buenos aires Argentina, my family is from SANTOMENNA PROVINCE OF SALERNO; I know from the registers of ELLIS ISLAND, that my great-grandfather came to NEW JERSEY,USA six times during 1905-1922, his name was FELICE DI GERONIMO and his wife`s name was GIUSEPPA ALTERA, also i know that he came alone to usa.
In New Jersey he lived during this time with his brother (GIUSEPPE) and with his brother in law (VINCENZO ALTERA), i would like to know if there are any relatives of family in santomena or in usa, my wish is to create my family tree and also i will be very happy if i could find new relatives.

There are about 10 Di Geronimo in Jersey City, NJ where he went to visit (see www.ellsisland.org website for arrivals of Felice Di Geronimo) and if you go to www.whitepages,com and put in Di Geronimo inthe red star line and Jersey City NJ there are aboout 10 Di Geronimo with addresses.
If you go to www.paginebianche.it and put in Di Geronimo inthe first line and beneath that put in Santomenna, (Postale 84020, Salerno province,Campania) and 10 persons who currently reside inSantomenna will show up by full name,address and telephone number.

Further if you wish to trace your family back to early 1800 up to the 1900's you can go to your nearest Mormon family History Library nearest your home in Argentina and rent out the microfilm of the civil records covering all births,marriages and deaths for that 100 year period. =Peter=

This is a possible 1930 census for Felice (born in 1883) and his family living in Jersey City:

1930 United States Federal Census
about Felix Digelonewmo

Age: 47
Estimated Birth Year: abt 1883
Birthplace: Italy

Felix Digelonewmo 47 head
Josie Digelonewmo 45 wife

so it seems that another son went to U.S. (James, maybe is the Felice you are referring to?)...

Ana,

I'm trying to understand more about your Di Geronimo family.... :?

In january 1929 there is a boy Vincenzo Di Geronimo coming form Santomenna (where he leaved his father Felice) going to join his uncle Giuseppe Di Geronimo living in Jersey City, 508 Mercer street...
I think this is your great-grandfather son (James in the 1930 census) Felice you are talking about:

(i believe in 1921 came to new jersey one of my great-grandather`s sons his name was also FELICE DI GERONIMO at that time he was 18 years old, his other son came to argentina anD he is my grandfather, FRANCESCO DI GERONIMO)

here is the arrival manifest:

In May 1929 your great-grandfather felice with his wife Giuseppa and child Pietro and Giuseppe arrived in U.S.

In 1930 the census shows the family living in Jersey City....

What do you know about them? Did they lived in New Jersey or they came back to Italy?

Hola Laura

Estoy muy contenta :D , ayer mismo escribí y hoy recibi un mail del sr. se llama Garry Custer, y me permitió entrar a todos los árboles de "SANTOMENA PEOPLE" , no sé que relación tiene con la gente de Santomena, pero me parece que un abuelo de él, era de Santomea, por lo que leí en uno de los mensajes de ancestry.

Igual él parte de la gente que se fue de Santomenna y fue buscando los datos y armando el árbol, en mi caso parte de mi bisabuelo. Por ejemplo a mi abuelo Francesco que vino a la Argentina no lo tiene en el árbol.
Ahora yo sigo molestando, como busco para atrás, o sea los padres de felice , la gente que se quedó en Italia, hay registros en ancestry de Italia de los años 1850-1860 por ejemplo, porque para escribir a la comuna o al Archivio di Stato de Salerno me faltan datos, yo sigo tus consejos. :idea:

Laura aca te copio un mail que envie a la Comuna de Laviano,

Mar del Plata, 09/11/07
Sig.ra Borriello
Del Stato Civile
Comune di LAVIANO
ITALIA
La Sottoscritta, si permette di revolgere la presente agli effetti di sollecitare abbia la gentilezza di trasmettere per POSTA atto di matrimonio di mio nonno conforme i dati seguito elencatiDI GERONIMO Francesco, nato in Santomenna in data 28/07/1904, figlio di Felice e di ALTERA Giuseppa. Cosí risulta della annotazioni marginali del resgistri di Atti di Nascita dell'anno 1904 di Santomenna numero 25."Con atto in data 19 Maggio 1947 , celebrato del Parroco della Chiesa di S. Maria Assunta in Laviano il (non si capisce la lettera) Di Geronimo Francesco si uni in matrimonio con D’Antonia Filomena di Giacomi, il civi atto (non si capisce la lettera) trascritto (non si capisce la lettera) registri di Stati Civile il 12 Giugno 1947 al N.8 Parte II Serie A."
Mi permetto di precisare che, assolo necessito le copie conformi all'originale, al fine di potere conoscere ma dati dei miei nonni e cosí potere incominciare a ricostruire la storia dei miei antenati italiani che desidererei lasciare ai miei discendenti. Nel ringraziare la Vostra dispinibilita', colgo I'ocasione per porgeLe i miei cordiali saluti.
ANA CARMEN DI GERONIMO

ahora te cuento porque lo envié,
mi papá me decía que su papá (francesco) había fallecido en Argentina cuando él tenía 18 años, pero cuando de la comuna de Santomena me mandan "atti de nascita" ( es la copia del libro original), en la partida figura esa anotación, puede ser un error de anotación de la comuna de santomenna, que sea otro francesco, o mi abuelo se volvió a Italia, cuando mi abuela falleció, (muy joven de un ataque de apendicitis), vos que vivis en Italia, eso creo yo, que pensas :?:
Espero que Peter también lea este correo, y asi se entera lo contenta que estoy con todos los descubrimientos y gracias a Uds.
Todo mi cariño y gracias por la ayuda.

Hola Ana,

pido desculpa però soy un poco en confusion....
Desde el acta de nacimiento de tu abuelo Francesco parece que el se casò en Italia en el ano 1947.... y despues el llegò a Argentina?
De todo modo, usted fuè mas que precisa en tu peticion del acta de casamiento, el comune de Laviano enviò el documento?

Ana, usted no piensa que la familia Di Geronimo de New Jersey (Felice, Giuseppa, Pietro y Giuseppe) regresò tal vez a Italia? Yo creo que puede ser porque no encontrè ningun otro datos de ellos.... especialmente sobre los dos hijos no encuentro nada... :?
Sy ellos regresaron desde EE.UU. a Italia tiene razon que tu Abuelo Francesco se casò el tambien en Italia en 1947....

Que piensa usted?

Hola Laura

Podés tener razón, que ellos se pudieron volver a Italia.
En el árbol que pude entrar no hay datos tampoco de los hijos, (pietro y giuseppe) solo hay de vincenso. Felice y Vincenso vuelven a ir a Italia y regresan el 5 de septiembre de 1932, vincenso viaja con la esposa, por lo que yo llego a leer en el manisfiesto.
Del comune de Laviano nunca tuve respuesta.

Aca te copio la entrada al pais de mi papá, que también se llamaba Felice, que me mandaron del Museo de la Inmigración en Argentina:

Le enviamos la informacion que hemos encontrado

APELLIDO DI GERONIMO
NOMBRE FELICE
EDAD 8 AÑOS
ESTADO CIVIL SOLTERO
NACIONALIDAD ITALIANA
PROFESION DESCONOCIDA
RELIGION CATOLICA
BUQUE CONTE GRANDE
PROCEDENCIA NAPOLES
FECHA ARRIBO 12/01/1935
NACIDO EN SALERNO


Con esta persona el mismo dia, el mismo barco, el mismo puerto de
procedencia, nacidos en el mismo lugar, la misma nacionalidad y religion,
llegaron:

DI GERONIMO, Francesco, de 10 años de edad, estado civil soltero, profesion
desconocida
DI GERONIMO, Maria, de 9 años de edad, estado civil soltero, profesion
desconocida (yo pienso que es la hermana mayor de felice, maría giuseppa)
DI GERONIMO, Maria, de 4 años de edad, estado civil soltera, profesion
desconocida
DI GERONIMO, Rosa Maria de,de 38 años de edad, estado civil casada,profesion
casera

Mi abuela se llamaba ANNA ROSA DI NICOLA, no pude encontrar la entrada al país de ella, y tampoco de FRANCESCO.

Yo pienso que mi abuelo Francesco vino solo a Argentina después del año 1926, ya que mi papá (Felice) nació el 21 de junio de 1926 en Santomenna,
y después nacieron en Argentina dos hijos más, Angel que le decían Donato, (y era menor unos 9 o 10 años que Felice) y despues nació Maria Rosa. Espero no confundirte, esos son mis tíos.
Después fallece mi abuela (anna rosa) y mi abuelo (franceso) se volvería a Italia?
Para no confundirte más aca te copio el mail que le mande al Sr. para poder ver el árbol y me parece que esta más clara la información.

Hello I`m ANA CARMEN DI GERONIMO. I live in Mar del Plata, Argetina, I was Born July 16th 1954.

My name is Theresa DiGeronimo. I am helping my husband, Michael, gather documents so he may claim dual citizenship in Italy. In my search, I came across this forum. I believe Ana is directly related to my husband of Jersey City, NJ. Here is what I know so far:
My Husband: Michael DiGeronimo; born Jersey City, NJ 1953

Father of Michael: Joseph DiGeronimo; born Jersey City NJ 1927 (approx); died 1968 (heart attack) Married Rose Maino.

Father of Joseph DiGeronimo: Giuseppe DiGeronimo (b: 1884 Santomenna, Italy; d: 1967 Jersey City, NJ): brother of Ana's great-grandfather Felice with residence on Mercer St. Giuseppe was married to Maria Guisepp DiNicola of Santomenna, I believe on 9/6/1923

Father of Giuseppe DiGeronimo: Francesco DiGeronimo (b: 7/28/1904; Santomenna. date of death unknown. Married Maria Guisepp DiNicola; date of birth unknown

If anyone has any information that might help us figure out how to gather all these birth, marriage, and death documents, it would be much appreciated. This is a difficult process, but if my husband can document his dual citizenship, he can pass it on to our son, Joseph DiGeronimo, who has been invited to play professional baseball in Italy IF he can document his citizenship! He was playing for the Baltimore Orioles in USA, but is now a free agent.
I was so happy to find this forum. I hope someone can help us find the documents we need. (I also wish I could read Spanish of Argentina!)

Correction: Francesco DiGeronimo married Anna Rosa DiNicola. (Odd that his son Guiseppe also married a DiNicola, but apparently he did.)
