Angela Laterza Putignano, Bari

Postby dconti » 10 Nov 2008, 18:13

I am researching my great grandmother Angela Laterza. I have her Ellis Island ship manifest, but am looking for additional info on her family before coming to U.S. She arrived in 1912 on the Duca d'Aosta. She was 42 yrs. old at the time. I need help with info on her parents and siblings.
Thanks

Did the parents or siblings come to the Usa? Have you pulled all documents to discover the name of both parents? Know any names of the siblings?

In order to trace Angela in Italian records, you need additional facts.
Vj provided a great resource, start with the marriage acts, (manifest indicates married) this will list her parents. You can be sure you have the correct person based on birth year and husbands name.
You can then move on to the birth acts, uncovering additional siblings based on names of parent.

If you want to fast track the process, you can send to the comune for the marriage record of Angela, assuming you have the correct town of birth:

Comune di PUTIGNANO
Ufficio di Stato Civile
VIA ROMA 8
70017, Putignano, (BA)
Italy

Lds

Thanks to everyone for your help. I've got a lot to learn. I have no info on her siblings, but a lot on her husband, so maybe I'll try marriage records.
Thanks again
