Faustino Gus Borrazzo

Postby solen1 » 02 Aug 2010, 20:00

Hello, I am trying to gather some information about my great fraternal grandfather - Faustino Gus Borrazzo. This is what I have so far:

Born: Nov 28, 1899
Naturalized Citizen on Sep 24, 1945 in Boston, Mass
Died: ?, Billerica, Maine
Note: He also had a brother Sabbato Borrazzo (Born 1901 - Naturalized Citizen on Feb 6, 1939)

That is where my trail stops. Any tips or leads would be great.

Thanks before hand,
David

Hello and welcome to this forum:

Could this be your ancestor in the social security index?

FAUSTINO BORAZZO 28 Nov 1897 Feb 1986 88 01866 (Pinehurst, Middlesex, MA) (none specified) Massachusetts SS # 010-14-424

If you click on the left icon under tools, a letter will be generated which you can mail to SS with a check for $27. That will give you his parents' names and his place of birth.

Hi David! :-)

This is the record of death from Massachusetts Death Index. There is a certificate #. Death records are not the most reliable records to use, but it is always a good idea to have them for reference.
Seems he died in Lowell, MA

Massachusetts Death Index, 1970-2003
about Faustino G Borrazzo
Name: Faustino G Borrazzo
Certificate: 017443
Death Place: Lowell
Death Date: 16 Feb 1986
Birth Date: 28 Nov 1899

As Peg (maestra) says, you can order the SS application to get parents' names and place of birth.

Thanks, T, for retrieving that info from the Mass Death Index. I don't know why there is a discrepancy in the year of birth in the SS index, but it seems like the info is for the correct person.

Here is Faustino's Naturalization Card for reference...

http://img828.imageshack.us/img828/451/borrazzonat.jpg

You can use the information on this card (especially the Petition # to order his naturalization papers...this will include a Certificate of arrival so you will know when and how he arrived in US)
Use the NARA site below...follow the directions for obtaining a reproduction.
You will have to create an account, but there is no fee for that. There is a nominal fee for the Naturalization records.

Hi Peg,

I'm sure it is the correct person :-)

You know we see so many discrepancies in the year, but not as much with the month and day. So it's a good bet.

Wow, thanks everyone!!! I will take you suggestions and see what I uncover.

Also, I too think that the SSN and the Naturalization documents are one and the same person.

My quest continues. Thanks Again!!

Maestra35.

The Social Security Index did not accept the SSN (010-14-424).

Could be because there are not four last digits, only three. Is it possible you may have missed a digit?

Thanks again,
David

That's okay. Just got back online for a few minutes. Didn't realize that I hadn't copied the entire line. Thanks for backing me up.
