Hitting a roadblock with Salvatore Geronimo Altieri...

Postby AAltieriTarzia » 18 Apr 2010, 04:18

Can't seem to find much info on Salvatore Geronimo Altieri, where he came from, if that is his true name, how he came into U.S. Only found 1 record that says he was born about 1856 in Genoa and came here when he was 4. I can't find any additional information about where around Genoa or Genoa itself, or parents names, what port he came into, who he was travelling with at age 4. He does not show up on a census until he is 44, he was naturalized and I have that certificate, but very little information on it, and I have a military record and also the same. No birth, death or marriage certificate, though I do know he was married to Mary Ann Farrell. Any ideas on where I go from here, would be helpful.

Thanks!

He does not show up on a census until he is 44,


If he settled with his family for first in Massachusetts, then this could be the 1865 census.

Peter Altieri, age 36, (approx. birth year 1829) born in Italy
Catharine Altieri, age 36, (approx. birth year 1829) born in IT
Servatore Altieri, age 9, (approx. birth year 1856) born in IT

living in Boston...

Thank you so much for all of this information! You have literally brought me to tears -- I can not express how much this means to my father. How did you ever find this information. I have other Italian relatives I am researching in my family and my husband's family and would lvoe to know how you found this information.

Thank You!!

Alex
