DiNapoli - Grande

Postby elemarie » 11 May 2009, 16:05

I am looking for any information of Guiseppe DiNapoli or Vincenz Grande.. They were married in Italy - I belive Napole, Naples, had one child there before boarding the ship and coming to America. I know they had lots of family there. Guiseppe was born in 1889 I believe and Vincenza Grande born in 1899. Any help of parents, granparents and siblings would be appreciated. :roll: :roll:

Elemarie,

Search Ohio Death Certificates
for Anna Di Napoli (with the space between the i and N)--this is Giuseppe's mother, and gives the names of her father and mother with maiden name
and for Francesco Denapoli--possible record for Giuseppe's father

Hi Biff!
Did you see that possible 1920 census in Akron for Francesco & Anna Di Napoli?
It appears to list all their children and grandchildren but left out the spouses?

Hi, Valarie :D !

I did see that possible census. I'm not sure who gave the information but he/she might have been confused as to what names were needed, and only gave children and grandchildren names.

I've been unable to locate any additional information on Vincenza Grande. Death certificates on Family Search end in 1953. However, here is what I believe is her Ohio Death record.
Name: Vincenz Dinapoli
Birth Date: Est. 1899
Gender: Female
Race: White
Residence City: Akron
Residence County: Summit
Residence state: Ohio
Residence Country: United States
Death Date: 26 Oct 1966
City of Death: Akron
County of Death: Summit
Certificate: 80944
Age at Death: 67
Certifier: Physician
Autopsy: No autopsy
Marital Status: Widowed

You should be able to request a copy of her death certificate from Summit County which might include her parents names.
