looking for surnames Mauro,Massaro,Padula,Palma

Postby karenbedard » 19 Feb 2009, 02:07

Hi, I am looking for Alfonzo Mauro who married Maria Massaro or Mascaro.They are from Luzzano Italy.They were born around 1862.Their children were
Joseph Paul Mauro ( B.1879 ) who married Pasqualina Pedula(B.1885).
Anthony, I do not know who he married.
Frank Mauro (B.1885) Married Angela Mary Palma (also from Italy)
Liberato (B. 1887)was the only son who stayed in Italy.

Joseph and Pasqualina's census say Benevento Italy? Joseph's second marriage after Pasqualina passed away says Joseph came from Luzzano.

Looking for any info on any of the above people, any info would be great.

I have all info on Joseph,Pasqualina,Frank,Angela for United States only. I do not have anything on Immigration and their lives in Italy (Births,Marriages etc).

I have nothing on Liberato

Thank You Karen

If you go to www.angelfire.com/ok3/pearlsofwisdom/it ... tters.html for a certificato di famiglia based upon Alfonso Mauro showing the date and place of birth of each family member. Send form letter to Ufficio Anagrafe for the certificate.

Estratto di nascita (birth long forms) for each of the members of the family lcanbe requested from the Luzzano Uffico di Stato Civile.

Go to www.nonsolocap.it and put in Luzzano (Prov. Benevento) and then click on the Luzzano name for the website which comes up and scroll down to municipio for the addresses needed for above. =Peter=

I do not have anything on Immigration


In which US state did they live? What is the earliest census you have placed them on? Did the census state year of immigration? Did they naturalize, and if so, year of naturalization?

Hi Wldspirit, sorry I didnt get an email stating a reply was made.

I now have Joseph Mauro and Frank Mauro's immigration and Naturalizations.
Earlist census is 1920 in Massachusetts for both Mauros.

Joseph Mauro supposedly lived in Scenectady,New York. He had 1 or 2 daughters born there and I can't even find them being born there. I have written to all counties and everyone says No births, No census.

Thanks Karen

Luzzano is a comune (town) in the Province of Benevento, Campania, Italy. So your information is not contradictory.

The 1920 census stated that Alphonse was born in New York, Mary born in New Jersey, and the rest of the children in Massachusetts. You would know the accuracy of it, but that is how it is listed.

It is possible that they are in New Jersey in 1910.

Hello Essgee -

You are correct on the Location Luzzano,Benevento,Campania,Italy.

If they are in New Jersey - then the census should be after March 1910 because thats when Mary was born, according to her marriage certificate and her son.

Looking at Alphonses Mass death index it says he was born in Mass


Thanks Karen

Hello!
Since the 1930 census also indicates that one of the children was born in New Jersey (Alphonse)
Perhaps another clue to finding the 1910 census may be where Joseph was headed from his ship manifest?
Thanks!
Valarie

For members w/o access to census records, for reference
1930 census
1920 census

I do not have his ship manifest. All I know is he came over Feb 25 1901 on the Columbia. I tried searching but could not find this.

Karen,
Thank you!
If this is Giuseppe Mauro’s manifest, it isn’t much help.
Headed to NY or NJ?
Was Joseph married in the US?
Thanks, Valarie

possible 1901 manifest
line 17
born abt 1880, single
last residence Moiano Luzzano
(comune of Moiano, village of Luzzano?)

I do not know if he was married when he came over, still trying to figure that out too.

His Naturalization says he came from Naples Italy.

Also his nauralization wasnt done until his second marriage (Pasqualina passed away and he remarried years later), so it has limited info.

Get a copy of his Declaration of Intent and Petition for Naturalization. These were filed before one could become a citizen. These have a lot more information on them then does the actual citizenship papers. It should help. Both of these would have been filed within 7 years of the date of citizenship.

If it occurred in Mass., you can e-mail the people at Waltham at the NARA...google for it. If you have the number of the naturalization ceritificate, it should help them locate the other documents. You can probably do this all by e-mail. Good luck
