Looking for DeGregorio, Conturelli & Zucconi in Massachu

Postby Amatheya » 10 Jun 2010, 16:53

I’m hoping that someone will be able to help me. I’m looking for help tracing the Italian American side of my family. Working from the furthest back to the most recent I’m looking for information on…

Edmund Conturelli who was born in Italy about 1868, he moves to Lawrence Massachusetts about 1914.
He Married Eliza Zucconi who was also born in Italy about 1873. She moved to Lawrence, Massachusetts about 1916. They had 3 Children that I know of Ubaldo, Oswaldo and my great-grandmother Giovannina.

Giovannina (Jenny) was born in Italy in 1909 she moved with her brothers and mother to Lawrence Massachusetts in 1816, married her husband about 1919 and died in 2001.
Her husband was Pasquale DeGregorio who was born in 1882 in Massachusetts, I know nothing about his parents other than that they were from Italy. He died in 1974 I believe in Middlesex, Massachusetts although as far as I know he and his wife lived their lives in Lawrence, Essex, Massachusetts.

Jenny and Pasquale had 4 children. Nanzzareno, Alice, Philomina and my Grandfather Raphael.

I know that Raphael was in the arm or air force during WWII and was in the UK at some point where he met my grandmother Aileen Marie Baldwin. He was born in 1921 and as far as I know died 1962. Again I believe he lived his life in Lawrence, Massachusetts and I believe that was where he married my grandmother about 1946. They had one child Angela but as far as I know Aileen returned to England before she was born and never returned.
I know that Ralph re-married but I don’t know if his subsequent family knew anything about his previous family or his daughter. I know that Aileen hid her past after she re-married and it was only common knowledge within the family a couple of years ago.

I would love to hear from anyone able to give me any information about the people above. I have information from the American census records but I’ve been unable to get any information from before they moved to America or after 1930.

I hope there’s someone out there who can help as I’ve hit a bit of a brick wall.
Thanks for reading!

Ancestry.com has a SSDI for Pasquale DeGregorio
Born 9/16/1882 - died March 1974 .
Last residence Everett, Middlesex, Massachusetts

You could send away for his Social Security app ($27.00) and usually it would have his place of birth and his parents names.
Most of the time it contains this information but I have sent away for some and it contained no helpful information.

Hope this helps.

Hi Joannsalvo,

Thanks for your reply. Unfortunately I found that record a while ago and then discovered that there was a second Pasquale DeGregorio with similare details living with his family in Everett. I believe he is the one that death index belongs to :(

From where in Italy did your Zucconi relatives come? We have Zucconi family from Borgotaro/Belforte in Emilia Romagna.

Thankyou sooo much vj. This information is fantastic!! :)

I was completely over the moon to see that you'd found a photo of Evelina. I'm 100% certain that she is my G-Grandmothers sister as the first thing my grandmother told me (In a none to please voice) after informing about the Italien side of the family, was that I look just like the my grandfathers side of the family and since I have no photos I've always wondered. Having looked at Evelina I now know exactly what she meant take away 30 years and a few lb's and that photo is me!!! Quite spooky really.

Thankyou again :)

Hi,

Since you were all so helpfull last time I needed assistance I thought I'd pop back and ask again.

I was wondering if anyone would be able to look up my Grandfathers 1840 census for me (I can't afford the ancestry fees :( )

Here are his details again.

Raphael Joseph DeGregorio (Ralph)
B - 23/08/1921 Laurence Massachusetts
D - 1962
Father - Pasquale DeGregorio
Mother - Geovannina (Jennie) Condurelli

I believe in 1940 he would have been living with his parents in Laurence, Essex, Massachusetts.

Thanks in advance :)
