Bertolini Annunziato Stella Cilento

Postby fonz » 10 Jul 2010, 12:33

My grandmother is Diana Bertolini (Married name Annunziato), my grandfather is Gaetano Annunziato. I do know my greatgrandfathers name is Domenico Annunziato and was married to Louisa Bianco. I am trying to find out more information on both the Bertolini's and the Annunziato's. They came from Stella Cilento and there are so many variations on there names, I haven't been too successful. I also have some sketchy info from a relative that my great grandmother may be a Massanova (spelling also sketchy.) I have some death dates, siblings names on the Annunziato side, but nothing on the Bertolini side. Just a bunch of prayer cards with the date died but have no clue how they are related.

Please help lead me in the right direction. I tried ancestry.com but didn't get very far. Just info I already knew.

How about some more info? Anything at all will be helpful - any and all dates (death, arrival, ...), places resided in the US, etc.

Those small numeric notations next to their names are an indication that they at least began the process of becoming naturalized US citizens.

I think you have enough information on Anna Bertolini (approximate birth year, father's name, husband's/children's names) to go ahead and write to Stella Cilento and request copies of her birth and marriage acts.

That will give you more detail including her exact date of birth and marriage as well as her parent's names and birthplaces.

Children of Bertolini Annunziato continued

Domenick Annunziato Birth 13 NOV 1915 in Philadelphia Pa Death
APR 1978 in Philadelphia

and Rose Annunziato (my mother) Birth 14 May 1921 in Philadelphia Pa Death 30 April 1993 in Philadelphia

Gaetano's father and mother.

Domenico Annunziato Birth 1862 in Sarno, Death 4 Dec 1951
Louisa Bianco Birth about 1863 in Italy

I did see some manifests, the Roma with my grandmother was a return visit to Italy, not her emmigration. That I cannot find. And no family records for her family as of yet. As I said I do have prayer cards for alot of Bertolini, but no concrete info to link us to them and where on the tree they stand, uncles, brothers, cousins, father.

I do have some of the information you provided, I been trying, I didn't make the connection though of Anna Bertolini or Pasquale. I found it difficult to read. My grandfather was a stone mason, and his siblings names are James, Gennero (Generosa on file) Emilio, Nicholas, Pasquale and Jennie. I appreciate the help.

I just checked the manifest again on ancestry, and it is Diana (my grandmother) not Anna. The Annunziato is written below, her married name. I don't know how I overlooked that the first time. However, good info about father Paquale.

I forgot to ask, you mentioned writing Stella Cilento, Who do I make the request for information to.
