Capaldi & di Salvi in Chicago 1908 to 1950

Postby stuartcapaldi » 27 Oct 2008, 20:01

I am searching for the descendants of my grandfather's sisters who both emigrated to USA between 1907 to 1914.

My grandfather was Achille Capaldi born in Munich, Germany 1878 whilst his parents, Sante Capaldi and Angela Maria Fusco from San Giuseppe, Picinisco and Valle grande, Villa Latina, were working in Germany. A common pattern of working outside the community.

His sisters details are as follows

Achille's sisters, Maria and Filomena


Assunta Maria Capaldi born 1882 in Valle Grande, Villa Latina.

Sante Capaldi her father is noted on birth record as working away from the Commune.

She emigrated to USA circa 1908

Living at Racine Avenue, Chicago in 1940s to early 50s



Maria married Giuseppe Di Salvi or Salve or Salvocirca 1902

Son Emilio Di Salvi born circa 1907



1920 USA Census

Living at 78 Harrison Street, Chicago District 914, Cook, Illinois

Occupation - Shoemaker - rented shop



1930 USA Census

Living at 175 Ashland Boulevard, Chicago

Names anglicised to Joseph, Mary & Emile Salvi

Niece, Angelina Capaldi also living in the house, occupation - Postal telegraph worker.



Filomena Capaldi no details of birth, marriage etc.

Anecdotal evidence from my aunt who corresponded with Angelina regularly in the 40s

Assumed she married a Capaldi as all her chidren had Capaldi as their surname.

Children - Angelina, Carmelia, Leondra & Emanuelle

emigrated to USA Chicago circa 1913.

Any information on the descendants of Achille's sisters would be very hepful

Thanks :D

State (Year) SSN issued: Illinois (Before 1951 )

Perhaps an error with the SSDI, California list different year:

thanks these details seem extremely helpful.

The di salve confirms from my own search the 2 year discrepancy.

How do I get some more info from this information especially the details of the parents of the two sisters?

You have definitely put me on the right track excellent

thanks very much
