Pronati (or Pronatti) Vittoria Maria

Postby Seraphina » 13 May 2010, 12:12

Hi, I'm trying to find a naturalisation record for Vittoria Maria Pronati, but have had no success so far.
Neither can I find her on any census records.

The only info I have is her birth in Guelma, Algeria in 1880, her immigration from Turkey in 1934, her death in Napa on 3/3/1965 and she is buried in the Italian Cemetery in California.

She may not, of course, ever have taken out US citizenship, but if anyone can find anything else about her, I would be grateful.

Hello Seraphina :-)

Is Pronati (Pronatti) her married or maiden name?

What documents have you already found in your research? Just so we don't duplicate efforts...

Is this the manifest for Vittoria from 1934? Landing in San Fransicso...

There is a notation further down the page dated 6/26/36 stating that she was re-admitted to the US for permanent residence at Blaine, Washington, on 6/26/36 under the name Vittorina Olivieri...

Tessa,

Many thanks for pointing out the re-admittance in 1936. I'd missed that.
And I had no idea about the surname Olivieri. No wonder I can't find her.

Except that I did find her death notification - I think that was on Ancestry - under Pronatti.

Great find, Tessa. The mystery is solved(I hope), and I can now search under the new name.

Thanks again.

Seraphina,

On Ancestry, did you also find the manifest from Oct 1934 for Maria Pronati? She was crossed off, but there is other information...Visa # (TV7) issued at Livorno, 1 Sept. 1934. Last residence (though born in Algeria) was listed as Viareggia, Italy. (Maybe relatives there?

Thanks Tessa,

I did see the Viareggio one. That is her.
I've just searched for her under Olivieri, but no trace of her under this name.
I can't access the Blaine Washington immigration site. I'm probably doing something wring, but I'm not familiar with US sites.
