Grandfather is Joseph Stozzetto Sauro or Joseph Stozzetto?

Postby JudyAnn54 » 10 Jul 2009, 14:27

Good Morning,
I am a new member. I've been doing genealogy for a few months now. I'm trying to obtain more information on my maternal grandfather, Joseph Stozzetto. He was born on November 11, 1902 in Naples, Italy and passed away on May 26, 1973 in the USA.

I obtained a copy of my grandfather's social security application which was very surprising to me. His first name was typed out as Joseph which is correct and then his middle name typed out was Stozzetto and his last name typed out was Sauro. He even signed the social security application, Joseph Sauro.

His parents names are Carlo Stozzetto and Concetta Saputo (maiden name).

I've always known him as Joseph Stozzetto and his death record is Joseph Stozzetto. I'm not sure which was his real name now.

Could the social security administration made a mistake in typing out his application?

I eventually would like to obtain his birth record from Italy and find out any more information on his parents. Where can I go to find that out?

Thank you so much for your help.

Hi Judy

I have a similar story to this. My great great grandfather was Luigi Veronesi-Guardini. His brother was Illuminato Veronesi Domenico. There father was Illuminato Guardini!

The two brothers were both volunteers in the Garabaldi campaigns. Yet on the memorial wall, one is Luigi Veronesi-Guardini, and the other is Illuminato Veronesi

The added names may derive from a place of birth, residence, other family name or proffesion. For example, here, the Veronesi is connected with a person from Verona

There is a town called Sauro in Sicily. Is there any family connection with there? I know its a long way from Naples...

I have no idea if there is any family connection to anyone in Sauro, Sicily. Both of my parents and all of my grandparents passed away so there's really no one to ask now.

I didn't even realize that there was a city called Sauro in Sicily. :) Thank you so much for bringing that to my attention. :)

I appreciate you trying to help though. :) Thank you. :)
