Help Looking for Records for Carmela Mandarino

Postby nmaritch » 21 Mar 2010, 02:38

Hi,
I am looking for an obituary or some kind of record for Carmela Mandarino, nee Molinaro, she was the sister to my great great grandmother Palma Molinaro Aiello,. She was born in Italy and married Santo Mandarino, there.
He died in Chicago in 1957. I can't find records for her. They had four children. Three boys and a girl.

Thanks,
NM

She was born about 1886 in Rende Italy. I think that she came to the US in 1935? Her husband Santo came at about 1921, one of his trips.

You're right, she came in the U.S. on 1935 with her husband Santo Mandarino:

Thanks for the ship's manifest. I had forgotten that I had it. I also came across the California death record. However I hesitate to use it as it has a different date of birth.

Thanks,
NM

What is your source for Carmela's DOB?

Census data is known to be inaccurate. Manifests as well.
Continue to look for validation.

The information I have is from the 1935 ship's manifest.
