Thanks ofr the help but this is not the Guiseppe Cammarota I' m looking for--we know for sure that he was born in Sorrento or Naples not in Sicily.
Grazie!!

Hi Roy, welcome!
I found a record abt a Clemente Cammarota( coming from Sant'Agnello, Napoli) wife Maria in Sant'Agnello, travelling in USA and joining at Giuseppe Savarese son in law; also I found a Carmela Cammarota, single coming from same place and joining at Giuseppe brother in New York:

Clemente Cammarota:

First Name: Clemente
Last Name: Cammarota
Ethnicity: Italian - So. Italy
Last Place of Residence: S. Aguello, Napolo
Date of Arrival: Dec 18, 1913
Age at Arrival: 66y Gender: M Marital Status: M
Ship of Travel: Prinzess Irene
Port of Departure: Naples
Manifest Line Number: 0028

http://www.ellisisland.org/EIFile/popup ... &line=0028

http://www.ellisisland.org/EIFile/popup ... &line=0028

Carmela Cammarota:

First Name: Carmela
Last Name: Cammarota
Ethnicity: Italy, Italian South
Last Place of Residence: S. Agnello
Date of Arrival: Jul 18, 1905
Age at Arrival: 32y Gender: F Marital Status: S
Ship of Travel: Giulia
Port of Departure: Naples
Manifest Line Number: 0029

http://www.ellisisland.org/EIFile/popup ... &line=0029

They could be the father and sister of your Giuseppe? I cannot find the ship's manifest of Giuseppe Cammarota coming from Sant'Agnello, maybe the surname is misspelled on ellisisland.org but my idea is that they could be right records... Sant'Agnello is a common near Naples and Sorrento..
for bad luck by Mormons it are not the civil record's microfilms previous of 1901
but
Topic Italy, Napoli, Sant'Agnello - Civil registration

Titles Registri dello stato civile di Sant'Agnello (Napoli), 1901-1927 Sant'Agnello (Napoli). Ufficio dello stato civile

do you want a copy for your own records or a certified copy from the town in order to obtain dual citizenship? If it is just a copy then it would best to go through the Mormans. If you need a cert. copy then you will need to write to the town requesting it. It will still be a good idea to verify your information by looking it up at the nearest family center. That way you can also give the town clerk a page number.

Hi Tamberino seeming to me that Roy wish the birth certificate; but was unsure abt the birthplace of ancestor... maybe Sant'Agnello common is the right place... second my opinion, obviously.....

thanks, everyone.....
some of the information we already have......
as far as we know, Clemente Cammarota and Maria Starace or Strace never came to the US; only Giuseppe and Carmela came to the US (New YorK)
we think carmela came first

we think carmela came first-- about 2 years before. We have conflicting info; some documents list Naples some Sorrento as for place of origination. I have written to both towns to see if they can help but so far I have not heard back; I need the place of origin before I can procede with the request of the birth certificate with the "apostille" .

Hello again;

Someone mentioned that if I need a birth certificate without the apostille I should get it thru the Mormons, that would be fantastic!!! How do I do that


Grazie mille

Suanj:

Grazie for the information.We were not aware that Clemente had visited the US. Where were you able to tofind this info? If this is correct, it's almost safe to assume that Giuseppe was born in S.Agnello. Also, someone mentioned getting a birth certificate from the Mormons; have you a point of contact? I will contact the S.Agnello "comune" thanks for the address!!!


Grazie

I found the Clemente travel and I posted the link of ship's manifest:
First Name: Clemente
Last Name: Cammarota
Ethnicity: Italian - So. Italy
Last Place of Residence: S. Aguello, Napolo ( Sant'Agnello, Napoli)
Date of Arrival: Dec 18, 1913
Age at Arrival: 66y Gender: M Marital Status: M
Ship of Travel: Prinzess Irene
Port of Departure: Naples
Manifest Line Number: 0028
pag 1
http://www.ellisisland.org/EIFile/popup ... &line=0028

pag 2
http://www.ellisisland.org/EIFile/popup ... &line=0028

abt the Mormons you can search the Mormon's center near your home and you can order the microfilms:
Topic Italy, Napoli, Sant'Agnello - Civil registration

Titles Registri dello stato civile di Sant'Agnello (Napoli), 1901-1927 Sant'Agnello (Napoli). Ufficio dello stato civile
http://www.familysearch.org/eng/library ... umns=*,0,0
but you no will find the Giuseppe birthact, because it are available only the civil records from 1901 to 1927... but maybe you will find the death records of Clemente and wife....
for the birth certificate of Giuseppe you must ask it in Sant'Agnello Common..
best regards,
suanj

I am also looking for my great great grandfather. Giuseppe Cammarota. I was told they were from Messina area. His son Frank was born in 1888. Giuseppe was married to Fortunata. This is all I know. This is my first post on this site. Hopefully I am following protocol.
