I think your Antonio Maddaloni arrived at age 50 at NYC in 1902 from MELIZZANO

www.tuttitalia.it/campania/35-melizzano is the town of origin for your family.

Go to www.castlegarden.org and put in his name and look up his arrival.

I found that both the surnames( Maddaloni and Siviglia) was in Melizzano surely.. but only by some obituary of Antonio or Josephine, or the italian children, it could be possible to know more; also if Gaetano was naturalized.... from declaration of intention.... but seeming that no many data came up abt that on ancestry...
however:
Southern District (Manhattan, Bronx, Westchester) 1906-1959


Maddaloni Gaetano 114(petition Volume) 521 ( Petition number) 04/18/1902 2/17/1881 Petition

When you get to the Mormon family history library and veiow the microfilms for Melizzano bring along a book Discovering Your Italian Ancestors by Lynn Nelson since this is a companion book for the films you will find it very helpful. =Peter=

Ok I picked up the book, discovering your Italian Ancestors, it was very helpful. The problem I am having is the films for Melizzano only go up to 1860. Gaetano was born in February of 1881. I had to jump and look for Antonio Maddaloni, I found one Antonio Maddaloni, born in April of 1851. This is not Gaetano's father. Is there anyway to trace records from 1881?
I am running into a roadblock again. Can anyone give me advice?
I still have the Melizzano tape available for a couple of more weeks.
Thanks
Robert

Since Melizzano appears to be a strong possibility, have you tried simply writing to the stato civile office and requesting birth certificates? The service is nearly always provided free of charge and depending upon the comune can take anywhere from a few weeks to a few months.

You can visit this site for help with creating a letter in Italian. The correct address to write to would be:

Ufficio dello Stato Civile
Comune di Melizzano
Via Traversa del Sannio
82030 MELIZZANO BR
ITALY


The comune's website can be found at http://www.comune.melizzano.bn.it/

Ok I will send for the birth certificate. Do you recommend I try for Gaetano's birth certificate of 1881, or for Antonio's birth certificate of 1851.
Thanks

Civil records are kept starting 1870, so you'd better ask for Gaetano's birth act of 1881
