Surname - Giglio

Postby Juniornumber8 » 08 Nov 2003, 15:47

This has got to be the most difficult thing I've researched yet. Any information on the Giglio name would be soooo appreciated. My grandfather, Vincent Anthony at 74 years old would now like to know his roots. He was orphaned at 5 when his father, Thomas died in New York. I don't think his father Thomas came straight from Italy, maybe his father though.

This might be a stretch but there is a listing for a Tomasso Giglio who was born in 1891 in Licata, Sicily enetered the USA at NYC at Ellis Island on March 30,1907 on board the passenger vessel Citta di napoli destined to his father Slavatore Giglio. Please let me know if this is familiar, if not, was your grandfather Vincent anthony born in the USA and can you obtain a copy of his birth record which may provide additional information. When did Tomasso Giglio pass on? if it was after 1963 there should be a record with socuial security. Peter

There is a Thomas Giglio on there, maybe you could order his death certificate from NYC that would cost something like $15 or so, and would be a starting place. Hope that helps :) .

Hi!... There are some Giglio's in Argentina too.
At www.apellidositalianos.com.ar , there are several people who look for that surname. If you wanna see that, just go to www.apellidositalianos.com.ar , enter Listado de Apellidos, then Base de Datos; you can use Buscar Todos los Apellidos or Buscar Apellido Exacto; I always choose the latter. There, write Giglio and press Enter...
Besides, there are 236 records about immigrants named Giglio at http://213.212.128.168/radici/ie/defaultie.htm .
Best wishes.

I have found this search site helpful in finding surnames: http://calabria.indettaglio.it/eng/moto ... i_out.html
This search engine is only for Calabria. I know there were Giglio's in my grandfather's comune of Montalto Uffugo.
