Looking for Liberatore Family!

Postby CarissaLiberatore » 23 Jun 2009, 18:56

I'm looking to follow my strain of Liberatore family. It is said that our last name was originally French when a descendant of ours freed a bunch of French peasants in a war and they dubbed him Liberte (Liberty/Free'er). Then he moved into Italy.

My father is Ernest R. Liberatore Jr., (siblings Kenneth and Phillip)

His father is Ernest R. Liberatore SR. (siblings Richard and Trudi)

His father is Attilio Americo Liberatore (Born in 1905), (siblings believed to be Marty and Lucy, likely American Nicknames)

His father is Antonio Liberatore (had a brother that came over around the same time. Brother's name is believed to be Belisarius.) It seems Antonio came over to the States in 1890.

Both brothers that came over were Southern Italian.

Attilio and his siblings were the first generation to be born in America, b. 1905.

If you are related to me or know any more information, please let me know!

Carissa,

If the above birth, census and naturalization records are correct, the Antonio who arrived on the California in 1903 is not your great great grandfather.

I need to find the ship's log of 1890. The Ellis Island records don't seem to go back before 1892. If anyone has any tips or information, I'd appreciate it!

You're welcome. We're happy to have helped. I've been able to locate records based on Valarie's birth record find.

This should help locate his ship manifest.
