Antoinette Niglio - Where in Italy Does She Come From?

Postby Nigliomerr » 28 Jul 2010, 02:18

Greetings.

I have been tracing my family back to their respective towns in Italy. To date I have been successful in finding both my maternal grandparents and my paternal grandfather. Still a huge mystery to everyone is my paternal grandmother. I don't know my father so this has made the search even more challenging.

I am trying to find where my grandmother's family comes from in Italy. This is the only information I have to date.

1. Grandmother's name is Antoinette Niglio

2. Niglio is her married name and so far I have not
been able to find her maiden name to continue my search.

3. She married Ralph B Niglio Born: 27 sep 1904 Salerno, Campania, Italy Died: 22 oct 1988 United States.

4. They lived in Philadelphia and Delaware and they had 4 children (Emilio, Ralph - my father, Carmela and Charles).

Antoinette's Information:
Born 25 Oct 1899
She had 1 sister
Death Date: 17 Aug 1988
Social Security Number: 221-01-5180
State or Territory Where Number Was Issued: Delaware
Death Residence Localities ZIP Code: 19801

I'm not sure if this is the right forum to ask this question but so far everywhere else I have tried has turned up no information. Without her maiden name I am at a loss as to how to trace her back to Italy. Can you help?

Thank you for your time and assistance to consider this request.

Kind regards,
Maria

Greetings Peter,

Thank you kindly for such a fast response. Ralph came to the US when he was 4 and they were married here in the US - I believe Philadelphia (or Delaware). I have tried to find a marriage record but keeping hitting walls. I'm new at this so maybe I am just not going to the right spot but when I have looked, I come up with nothing.

Kind regards,
Maria

As Peter stated, you can request the Social Security application for Ralph Niglio, on which will be his place of birth and his parents' names (which should include his mother's maiden name)

You can also request Antonette's SS application. That will ALSO include her place of birth and her parents' names.

there is a fee....

there is a marriage for Ralph Niglio to Antoinette Polselli in Phila in 1933

unfortunately the LDS Beta image only shows the ledger license index information. It does give a record # 629649

Greetings, Peter, Tessa,

Thank you most graciously for providing this guidance. I had no idea where to go next and I can say for certain I did not know one could request a SS application. This is a wonderful and I am very appreciative for the link you provided. Many thanks!

Kind regards,
Maria

Greetings eyetalgal!

WOW! My guess is that is it. The date aligns with the birth of their children so I am hopeful that is it. Thank you most kindly for the time you took to look that up for me. I am not familiar with the LDS site but couldn't be more thrilled with this lead. Thank you so much!

Thanks to all of you for your time and help. You are all so kind to respond so quickly with leads and guidance. I believe I can move forward now.

A million thanks! I am very grateful.

Kind regards,
Maria

Greetings,

Several of you helped me out a couple of years ago on my quest to find information about my paternal grandmother. After searching for these past 2 years I am still no further along and was hoping to reach out to this wonderful group of folks to see if you can please provide me some guidance.

In my last quest, you guided me to her marriage license so that I could obtain her maiden name, which to date remains the only document I have about her. To this date, even with her maiden name, I still can not trace from where in Italy she came. I can't confirm if she was born in the United States or in Italy. I have maintained a membership to Ancestary.com with the hope that every so often, as they update, their documents and such, something new would surface but I have had no luck. I can't find anything on her, or her parents. I can't even find her obituary.

It is very importnat to me to try and at least understand from where she came as this is the only missing link in my family history. Is there anything or any place to where you can guide me for assistance? I would be beyond grateful for any shred of information I can find on her or her parents.

Many thanks to all of you who are always so kind and gracious in your assistance.

With sincere thanks,
Maria
