Census records for Minetti

Postby JoeC » 17 Feb 2009, 21:15

Hi -

I'm trying to find the 1920 and 1930 census records for my great-grandparents. According to their marriage certificate, their names were Carmine Minetti and Teresina Gargiula. They were married on March 7, 1914 in New York City. I've been told by my grandmother that they lived in New York city until around 1925 when they moved to Hoboken, NJ. I believe Carmine was born Jan 2, 1885 and died Mar 23, 1942. Teresina was born Apr 1, 1887 and died Apr 7, 1960. They had seven children:
Carmella (Jan 3, 1915), Michael (Jun 5, 1916), Andrew (Oct 20, 1917), Viola (Jan 9, 1919), Mario (Sep 2, 1920), Vito (Mar 31, 1922) and Maria (Aug 25, 1923).

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks -
Joe

you can also go to www.italiangen.org/VRECLIST.stm and look them up under marriages in NY since you have both names and dates of marriage. =Peter=

JoeC,

Not sure if you have this but here's a copy of Carmine Minetti's Delaration and Petition for Naturalization.

Biff: Thank you for the document. I did not have a copy of it.

Peter: Thanks for the url. I was able to get some marriage information for some other relatives of mine.

jcat: Thanks for suggesting the free trial at Ancestry.com. I'll have to give it a try.

Biff: That really is an impressive document. I really appreciate getting it. Can you tell me how I may be able to get similar documents for other ancestors in my family tree?

Peter: I was not able to find any census information from the url you suggested. Maybe I missed something? I have been using HeritageQuest, which is available for use from my local library. I'm not sure why, but I have not been able to locate either the 1920/1930 census records for my great-grandfather, Carmine Minetti. Do you have any ideas on possible alternate spellings or things like that I can search on?

Thanks -
Joe

Joe,

I located the naturalization record on Ancestry. Footnote also has a number of naturalization records. Both are pay sites.

Don't feel too bad, I'm using Ancestry and have still not found any census info on Carmine and family. Did Carmine go by any other first name; did he change his surname by any chance?

Dear Joe I only have 1920 census for Alabama and California. lately many of the hithertofore fruitful and free websites have become paying websites making it difficult if you are not a member in good standing. There is a website that I used to use that may still be useful in some shape or fashion for you at www.worldvitalrecords.com =Peter=

Postscript: I did a name check and found that there are 370 listings for Carmine Minetta in 158 indexes and that is as far as I can get without loose change. =Peter=

Biff: As far as I know, and from all of the information I do have, such as immigration records from Ellis Island, marriage certificates, the surname was always and is still Minetti. I don't think Carmine went by any other name, but am not sure. I was able to find another great-grandparent census for 1920 recently, which on HeritageQuest, the surname was transcribed as Zimbella. The real surname is Zampella. I found that by searching on given name and several other parameters, and then just browsed the results until I found a record that was definitely them. Haven't been able to do that yet with Carmine Minetti, though...

Peter: Thanks for the url. I will definitely take a look and keep my fingers crossed.

Thanks for your help!
Joe

I am hesitant to mention that Carmine is more often a southern Italian first name rather than one normally found in Northern Italy,however, I feel it would be remiss of me to overlook the obvious and not mentionthat there are 5 towns in Lombardia having inhabitants whose last names are MINETTA with no Carmine in evidence at www.paginebianche.it. =Peter=

Laura -

You are amazing! I don't know how you were able to find it with the mispelling, but I am very happy that you did. Any ideas for the 1930 census? I believe the family had moved to Hoboken, New Jersey by that time.

Thanks again!
Joe
