Giuseppe Lostracco

Postby tonij16102 » 26 Mar 2009, 21:46

I am needing help once again for a great-great-grandfather named Giuseppe Lostracco. I have tried to find him on Ellis Island and can't because I notice now that on his Declaration Of Intention it says he came to America on or about August 14, 1903 through the Port Of New York. Also he was a Medic in the Boer War aka African Italian War I have his Army Journal and he came over from Bugnara, Italy. Where would I write for is Army papers if they kept them back then? Thanks,
Toni

there is no Giuseppe inthe ellisisland.org website nor the Castlegarden website ...Have you checked for an alternative first name? do you have his birthdate? If you do then you can go thru ellisisland by year of birth.

You can obtain military records from the Archivio di Stato di L'Aquila, Piazza Della repubblica 9, 67100 L'Aquila, Abruzzo by sending a form letter in Italian to the above address.

The website for the form letter is www.angelfire.com/ok3/pearlsofwisdom/saviello2.html =Peter=

Hi Peter,
That's the problem I don't know of any other name for him other this way Lo Stracco I did find his brother Felice but not him. Is Castle Gardens the site for the Port Of New York? Thanks Peter

www.castlegarden.org is for port of NY from 1880 to the early 1900s as well as ellisisland.org. Why not write away for the military records and see if there was another first name besides Giuseppe? Lostracco or Lo Stracco is not important. =Peter=

Thank-you misbris that's him he from what I was told came a few times before he settled here...this forum is so very helpful. Most females came over by their maiden names didn't they? I have to find his wife Filomenia Sylvestri and my grandmother Marrietta and her sister Anna. Thank-you once again. Toni

Hi Toni!
No luck finding Filomena Silvestri or her daughters' manifest.
Only located one census (1920).
She was born abt 1875?
Neither Marrietta or Anna were on the census, when were they born?

Is this the correct census?
possible 1920 census

Thanks! Valarie

Hello again Valarie
Yes this is the correct census and I se they have my great-aunt Annie listed as Andy and my grandmother Marrietta isn't on this because she was already married to my grandfather Antonio Dantonio in 1917. But Andy is actually wrong it should have been Annie. I'm not sure of her Filomenia's birth date I never had one.

Thank-you once again Valarie

Hello Suanj,
Yes this us him he was a boarder with a family where he lived in Mahoningtown, New Castle, Pa. Fleet Lostrico was his brother Felice that eventually was lived a block away from each other when they bought their homes. Is there anyway to find a Naturalization Paper for him?

Thank-you so much for the info.

Hello again Suanj,
As far as I know they were married in Italy before the came to America...but I could be wrong as I have no date for that yet.

Thanks again,
