Need help reading this Record

Postby Castrogovianni » 28 Aug 2009, 02:02

Hi Friends,

Please help me read this record. I can see that Francesco Castrogiovanni's wife's name is Giovanna; however just below it; i can't read his fathers name on line #25, column 11? Is it Giuseppe? Thanks

here is the link:

After looking further...the fathers's name may go with the line below Francesco :( ...your thoughts

I think his father's name is Giuseppe. The name of the town follows. I don't see the wife's name Giovanna. On the second page, it states that he is joining brother Salvatore at 60 Catherine St NY. As far as Antonia on line 26, there is no name listed there for a contact back in Italy, just the name of the town.

Francesco Castrogiovanni; age 28; male; married; laborer; unable to read or write; last residence - Militello (probably Militello in Val di Catania); nearest relative in Italy - wife Giovannina; going to join brother Salvatore at 60 Catherine Street, New York, New York; Marks of Identification - scar to the cheek; Place of Birth - Militello.

I believe the reference to "father Giuseppe" is for line 26.
