Searching for Zambitos from Genoa Italy(my father and others

Postby nycareerwoman729 » 21 Jun 2010, 23:50

Hi,
I have been searching for years with no success for my father and any other relatives in Genoa Italy. His name was (is?) Charles Gino Zambito aka Cologero Zambito and he married my mother in NY August 1955. I was born July 1956 and there is no record of him anywhere from 1962. He had a sister who married a butchers son in NY and moved to Brooklyn in the 50's also but I don't know her married name (she had 5 kids and has my parents wedding album-I think her name is Joan). He also had a brother who worked on some type of ship from Italy and his father-my grandfather-was blind. Does this sound familiar to any one? Any suggestions where else to look? I am hoping to take a trip to Rome in the near future and would like to locate any relative-even my Aunt and cousins possible in Brooklyn :) Thanks:)

Hello and welcome to the forum :-)

There are currently 7 Zambito listings in the Italian White pages for Genoa.

You might want to try writing to one or all of them to inquire about possible relatives?

Here is a possible arrival for Charles Zambito in 1953, arriving from Rome.
Not much information here except a number that may be a Visa or Passport #.

Travelers manifest for Trans World Airlines arriving NY 1953.

US Naturalization Index card for Charles (Calogero) Zambito living in Whitestone. Date of Petition card is 1957.

Don't know if you can follow up with the Naturalization # to see if the entire process was completed... or even follow up the Alien registration # that is on the card.

Are you sure that his origins were from Genoa? Zambito is a tipical Sicilian lastname (Agrigento Province) Maybe his family emigrated from Sicily to Genoa?
