Domenico Greco

Postby italianguy50 » 02 Mar 2010, 05:46

I am searching for any information on my great grandfather DOMENICO GRECO, his wife or his parents. He was born 20 February 1879 in Altilia, Cosenza, Italy. He arrived in America at Ellis Island 18 April 1903 at the age of 23 years on the ship Buenos Aires. His departure was from Naples and he was married to Maria Elisabetta Adamo from Altilia, Cosenza, Italy. She did not go to America with him but came to America 17 years later.

From the site of the State Archive of Cosenza:
http://poster.beniculturali.it/poster/action.do

Codice SIAS IT-ASCS-F680258
Ufficio Leva della Provincia di Cosenza, Liste di Leva della classe 1879.Registro numero 160,
atto numero 91 di pagina 199 sezione a
Domenico Greco, contadino iscritto il 03/07/1899
nato il 22/02/1879 a ALTILIA
da Francesco Greco e da Tommasina Aiello

1903 arrival manifest for Domenico Greco and his brother Ferdinando (them both stated they were joining their uncle Luigi Adamo):

http://www.ellisisland.org/EIFile/popup ... &line=0009

I believe the correct first name for Domenico's father was Fortunato because I found these dates for Domenico's brother:

Codice SIAS IT-ASCS-F680258
Ufficio Leva della Provincia di Cosenza, Liste di Leva della classe 1874.Registro numero 122,
atto numero 18 di pagina 179 sezione c
Ferdinando Domenico Greco, contadino iscritto il 29/09/1894
nato il 21/02/1873 a MALITO
da Fortunato Greco e da Tommasina Aiello

and possible Domenico's sister:

Codice SIAS IT-ASCS-F680704
Stato Civile, Comune di ALTILIA. Registro numero 56, atto numero 19 di pagina -
Maria Greco nato/a il 01/08/1864

da Fortunato Greco, contadino e da Tommasina Aiello

you can see the original birth act on the site of the State Archive of Cosenza:

http://88.59.143.158/ascs_web/streaming ... g&id=51532

from Ellisisland.org the 1920 arrival manifest for his wife Maria Adamo and son Fortunato:

You're very lucky because from the State Archive of Cosenza you can see all these original acts :!:
from the same site, here you have the original birth act for Fortunato Greco (you great-great-grandfather ), Domenico named his first son after his father:

Codice SIAS IT-ASCS-F680704
Stato Civile, Comune di ALTILIA. Registro numero 27, atto numero 21 di pagina -
Fortunato Greco nato/a il 04/06/1835

da Antonio Greco, crivaro e da Rosa Raimondo

http://88.59.143.158/ascs_web/streaming ... g&id=52694

and your Great-great-grandmother birth act:

Codice SIAS IT-ASCS-F680704
Stato Civile, Comune di ALTILIA. Registro numero 30, atto numero 41 di pagina -

I'm trying to access the web site, and cannot. Could you please give us the link to the State Archive.
Also, Thanks a million for finding these records for my friend. On Saturday, I bought from Italy Guy a pair of snow skis for my young son and met him for the first time. We started talking about our Italian ancestry.

I invited him to join this Forum. Great members, really help us out.
Thanks a million.

We all learn from one another.

I'm sorry for this... you can see all the images after registering (for free) to the site:

http://poster.beniculturali.it/poster/a ... ioneAction

then when you'll be able to enter the "Banche dati" you can search all these documents digiting the names and lastnames in the key research....

http://poster.beniculturali.it/poster/a ... ficaAction

Tell me if you'll be able to do this, otherwise I can save the images and post them for you...
