I know the following is not what you are searching for, but I came across this Australian website which has naturalization info for 27 people with the Materazzo surname, in case any of those are connected to your ancestry.

I believe i can confirm the previous founds for your ancestors... :D

I noticed that:

- :!: On 1900 census Antonio Matarazzo was living with a Joe Scafidi

- :!: I saw that on the 1906 death certificate for Jennie Matarazzo (daughter of Antonio Matarazzo and Caterina Scafidi) the address was 4 East Emerson street, Melrose, Middlesex County - Massachusetts

_ :!: I found the 1910 census for Joseph Scafidi:

1910 United States Federal Census

Age in 1910: 24
Estimated birth year: abt 1886

Michael Russo 23 brother in law, born in IT, single

address: :arrow: 5 West Emerson street, Melrose, MA

image: http://www.postimage.org/image.php?v=TsmbcA

- :!: then I found this very interesting arrival manifest:

Boston Passenger Lists, 1820-1943
about Guiseppe Scafidi

Age: 21 Years

Giuseppe Scafidi, age 21, married, occupation fruit merchant, last residence Malfa (Salina Island) then corrected to Boston MA, stating he was in the U.S. before, form 1899 to 1905 in Melrose MA, now joining his brother in law Antonio Matarazzo living on 470 main street, Melrose, MA.
Giuseppe Scafidi was travelling with his wife Rosa Russo, age 17, and his brother Alessandro Scafidi age 13

- :!: So, if really Giuseppe Scafidi and Alessandro Scafidi were Annunziata Matarazzo's mother's brothers, look at this:

I believe that Antonio Materazzo and Caterina Scafidi (with their daughter born in the U.S. Nancy/Annunziata) came back to Italy between 1905/1906 and 1908...
There isn't 1910 census for them...

I found a 1905/1906 City directory for Antonio Materazzo living in Melrose:
http://www.postimage.org/image.php?v=PqyqnQ9

the subsequential City Directory for 1908 doesn't list Antonio....

Did Annunziata travelled to Australia alone? Was she married at the of her arrival in Australia?
Were her sisters married when they arrived?
Do you know if Annunziata's parents travelled to Australia?

The more details you can give the better we can help....

wow this could be the family. Nunziata's parents never came to australia, i do not know if they even went back to italy. i know Nunziata went back to Salina, italy as she married in 1921 there and had 3 children. she then came to australia in 1927. her sisters married in australia.
