Need help with Marchetti from Gravina (near Bari)

Postby lmarchetti » 19 Apr 2010, 20:27

I am looking for marriage and birth records for my husband's grandparents from Gravina. I believe they were married in Italy before she came to the US.

Her maiden name was Maria Raffaella Desiante (dob = July 6, 1911). His name was Dominic born in 1900. I found records with his name spelled a hundred different ways. I would love to know their parents names as well.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

www.angelfire.com/ok3/pearlsofwisdom/it ... tters.html which will furnish you with instructions and a form letter to send to Gravina Uffico di Stato Civi;requesting their estratto di nascita =long form with their parents surnames and marriage record.

Put in the wife's maiden name and the husband's last name even if its wrong with willbe OK since you have the birth dates and the marriage can be approximated at 22-25 year of age for Domenico since they used to get married after the men came back from the army at 21. If Domenico was born in 1900 +- a couple of years they were most likely married 1921-1924. There is no fee for birth or marriage record.

Mail form letters to UFFICIO DI STATO CIVILE to the address found under MUNICIPIO at www.tutitalia.it/puglia/20-gravina-in-puglia =Peter=

Hi Lisa and welcome to the forum,

Do you have ship's manifests or other immigration records? Do you have a date and place of immigration?

Town name is Gravina in Puglia, province of Bari. There are many people with the names Marchetti and Desiante.

I do have the immigration records:
SS Vulcania from Naples on June 28, 1929
Domenico Marchetti, age 28
Maria Marchetti, age 18

Domenico had a passport issued in Washington DC (#650966). They were listed as married on the immigration record.

I also have some unofficial names of possible parents. I wonder if there is a website or something that can be used to verify it.

I believe the parents of Maria Raffaella Desiante were Graziella Desiante (maiden name may be Ferulli) and Domenic Desiante.

Dominic Marchetti's parents may be Carmelina Marchetti (no idea on maiden name) and Sibeone Marchetti.

If you have any ideas on this please let me know. I really appreciate any help.

Hi Liza,

this is the second page of the 1929 arrival manifest you're talking about:

I do have the immigration records:
SS Vulcania from Naples on June 28, 1929
Domenico Marchetti, age 28
Maria Marchetti, age 18

line 5 is for Domenico's wife Maria, looks like she stated she was leaving in Gravina Di Puglia her mother Lucrezia Marchetti....

You can use this site to find Domenico and Maria SSDI:

http://stevemorse.org/ssdi/ssdi.html

then you may request a copy of the Application they used to have a SSN Number:

this form has listed:

The SS-5, or Application for Social Security Number is a great resource for learning more about individuals who died after about 1960, and generally includes the following:

Now that you have all the information you need you can write to the Ufficio di Stato in Gravina di Puglia as I directed you to do up above and within 4-8 weeks you should have their bith and marriage records inyour hands, Lots of luck, =Peter (the orphan)=
