Amato & Grimaldi Families from Bracigliano

Postby CFH855 » 15 Mar 2010, 20:55

Please help if you can.
I am trying to find the marriage certificate of my great grandparents
Anna Grimaldi Amato and Antonio Amato. They arrived in the US in 1906 from Bracigliano.
I know that Anna had previously been to the US around 1899 as a child and her parents names could possibly be Luigi and Dorot Capaccio but I can't confirm that.

I am also trying to find out both of their parents names to.

I have immigration and naturalization documents already but need to find Italian documents (marriage and birth).

I believe both of them were born around 1888. I do know that Antonio's mothers name was Filomena Esposito. Anna & Antonio lived in Springfield MA USA where they had 4 girls.

Anyone have any suggestions? Thanks in advance for any help you can give. I really appreciate it.

Welcome to the forum! :-)

Since you know the comune/town of birth of you GGPs, you can write directly to the town to request the documents you need.
The following link will provide you with form letters in Italian to make your request.

I would send along an International reply coupon (which you can get at your local Post Office for $1.20)...but I would NOT send money with the letter.

Here is the link to the Bracigliano site which will give you the address of the City hall...and the name of the mayor.

Anna, on her 1906 arrival manifest stated she was in the U.S. before, from 1895 to 1903, I believe this was her first arrival:
